"A burning coal of discord in the cold furnace of modern existence, fusing elements of metal with the vocal stylings of the extreme; lyrically representing the next six songs in the soundtrack to your life."

Formed in London, Ontario (Canada), The Black Bridge started when long-time friends Crebbs and MP decided they had wanted to get this project off the ground. After several years of throwing the idea around, July, 2007 was finally the time.
Within a couple of weeks their first single, 'Fringe' was written. Combining some riffs that Crebbs had written on the fly with a collection of poems MP had laying around, the track materialized rather quickly and gave the band inspiration to continue working on this project.
Not wanting to pigeon hole themselves into one specific genre, The Black Bridge draws from many different creative outlets, combining them into something a little different than the 'norm'. Though the music tends to lean towards a darker side of the spectrum, there are other aspects to it that any metal lover can attach to.
Through semi-poetic lyrics, these songs cover emotional issues on a personal level that the band members have survived over the course of their lives. From loss, to infidelity, to just coping with everyday life The Black Bridge looks to grab a hold of the listener to give them a glimpse at what went into creating this album. Though these words are written in such a way that everyone can draw their own experiences from them, the music speaks to its audience on many different levels.
Their first E.P. entitled 'The Fallen' is out now!
