B.E.N.T. (1994-2001): a Thrash Metal band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.
This five piece from Milwaukee, Wisconsin formed in 1994 as a studio based operation. Their standard rock and thrash influenced music centered on subjects of politics and social issues, but done in a manner that didn't preach. A high quality recording has always been their M.O. Eleven (2001), was a much improved feature over their earlier release, Bury 'Em (1996), not that Bury 'Em had much to explain for. Eleven, featuring the membership of Michael P. Dersen (vocals), Brian Bolle (guitar), Ryan Loeche (guitar), Dewayne Bolle (bass) and Eddy Szczepanski (drums),proved that this band was major league material with professional sound and art. Fiercely independent and musically talented, B.E.N.T. (for: Beyond Every Natural Thought) proved to offer an excellent chance of getting their message heard.
