Come on in and have a listen before this beast drops tomorrow!
Tomorrow, Melbourne’s Gravemind will unleash their second EP, ‘The Deathgate‘, unto the world in full. After dropping the two prior banging singles that were the monstrous ‘Anaesthesia‘ and the sinister ‘Echo‘, and with all of the effort that this six-piece have put into this latest release – from a mysterious website, audio log recordings, embedding secret links to unreleased songs in said recordings, and more – it’s all hopefully about to pay off for this damn fine local deathcore crew. Because when I think about it, the only other band in Australia off the top of my head that puts this much effort and thought into their release’s promotion is Northlane. And I honestly think that Gravemind have the real potential to reach a similar level within their own genre.
In my recent review of this six-track EP and in scoring it 82/100, I stated that “Gravemind don’t need deathcore, deathcore needs Gravemind” and that this new EP was “Eldritch deathcore from the deepest void“. Which is simply just writer’s code for “you really need to listen to this shit!”
So, check out our exclusive stream of ‘The Deathgate‘ EP below in full before it drops tomorrow and fucks up each and every single one of your worlds. Go on, I dare you to find out why we’re so stoked on this band.
