Massachusetts five-piece still stomp-grooving and growling their way through it
COMMENTS:
'Gravebloom' sees the hardcore-influenced band with new bassist Griffin Landa and rhythm guitarist Tom Smith Jr. Not much has changed other than personnel, with the Massachusetts five-piece still stomp-grooving and growling their way through it. They wear their riffs like chainmail which should appeal to the diehards. For me, it's abrasive, overpowering and leaves me snuggling for more melodic warmth near the fire. Could be a 3 or 3.5 depending on mood and prior experience with their other seven records.
