We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Nate Bohnet’s new album Therapeutic Destruction (listen below), which is officially out now. You can grab the album at “Name You Price” through Bandcamp.
Therapeutic Destruction features 14 heart felt heavy tracks all recorded, mixed and mastered with his producer touch at his Medicine Hat, AB based Octave Studios.
This album is centered around the concept that music is therapy. We all go through times in our lives where nothing seems to make sense, everything is on the edge, and you don’t know what will happen next. We have all loved, laughed, lost, and experienced tremendous grief and joy in our time alive. ‘Therapeutic Destruction’ means harnessing all the negative energy that comes into your life, and unleashing it in music that some might consider destructive. I felt that the title fits the main idea of the album; using music as a way of therapy and harnessing it in such a way as to allow myself to deal with aspects of my life, and if one song reaches you and connects with you; it has done its job. The overarching message is that regardless of all these low points in our lives, all we have to do is push forward and strive. The only thing holding you back is your mind.
The Cambridge English Dictionary defines destructive as “a pulling down, overthrow’ and therapy as “pertaining to the healing art, curative’, so it is fully appropriate for one man studio artist and Nuclear Oath bassist Nate Bohnet’s debut solo album is entitled Therapeutic Destruction, for, like all true artists Nate has mined the rich seam of his own hard-experienced life experiences for inspiration.
Describing his music as ‘emotional, groovy, melodic, organic, and therapeutic’; this is art cut from the very heart, a sonic sampling of a man’s soul, and while such cuts are deep and painful, the art created thereof is that of pain purged, for creator and listener alike, a symbiotic salvation if you will. Having lost his parents as a very young child; Nate has truly experienced what he writes about.
Nate Bohnet hopes his album with help and heal his fans as much as it has himself.
