GRAVES AT SEA - THE CURSE THAT IS
No.1- Graves At Sea 'The Curse That Is' Relapse 2016
They did it. Fifteen years in the making and Graves At Sea has finally blessed us with their first full length- 'The Curse That Is.' Mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, Yob) and engineered by Greg Wilkinson, (Noothgrush, Brainoil) this 4 month old album couldn't be anything but monumental. All that's quintessentially Graves At Sea remains; those gravel truck vocals, lumbering bass tones and melancholic riffs are all strewn together in heavy, chaotic restraint. If 'Documents of Grief' was a melting survivor of the inferno, 'The Curse That Is' manifests as the healed, relentless warrior who's seen some shit. It's wide awake. Calloused and delicate with merited pauses between acoustic interludes, TCTI proves good things come to those who wait.
