Head over to Pitchfork.com for an earful of grisly doom from legendary Portland misery bringers, GRAVES AT SEA.
Titled “Betting On Black,” the latest canticle serves as the opening number of the band’s upcoming split with Cape Fear riff-wielders, Sourvein.
Relays Pitchfork of the tune, “‘Betting On Black’ leads off the split and shows that [GRAVES AT SEA] haven’t changed a bit… They still stretch out Grief-like sludge, and Nathan Misterek’s vocals still have that raspy black metal tinge to them. It’s got that earthy misery that you want from sludge, pain born from bad breakups and worse whiskey hangovers. GRAVES AT SEA also sound revitalized with the addition of bassist Jeff McGaritty and drummer Bryan Sours. Boogie to these blackened rhythms.”
