Album Review: GRAVES AT SEA The Curse That Is

Posted by | April 28, 2016

Graves at Sea is triumphant; sounding like a unit bristling with animated energy and freshness despite having produced a work no one would be surprised to find playing at the scene of a grizzly murder-suicide. The lifetime leading up to its debut’s torpedo landing may be unconventional, but fully justified as you can hear the musical anguish and life lessons learned being poured into the material. We’re not being melodramatic or histrionic when we say this album sets a new standard for the sludge/doom sub-genre and that the album of the year could possibly come in the form of these eight songs.

Along with Dismember, Unleashed, and Entombed, Grave stands for a sound that was birthed and perfected in Sweden. Unfailingly loyal to the genre, Lindgren seems to have gotten whatever experimental urges he may have felt out of his system back in the middle of the 1990's, as did so many extreme musicians. Since those days, each Grave album has sounded quite similar to the one before it.
