Brace for the hit. This may cause bleeding. With an aptly-titled album, You’re All Gonna Die, the ghoulish-looking dudes in Grave Robber are back with hooks that kill. Guitarist turned producer, Tim Bushong (former Lovewar, Channel Surfers), co-produced the band’s fourth full-length album, along with Shawn Browning, and the two play some additional guitars on “Haunted House.” Wretched belts out his “vokills” on the rocker, “Something Wicked This Way Comes,” sounding much like a Danny Elfman/Lee Ving hybrid – a good thing. “Last Man on Earth” is a most edifying anthem with uplifting melody and heavy bass lines from Carcass. The bludgeoning “Fill This Place With Blood” gives a taste of Lamentor and Grim’s guitar playing. While it’s often the case that shock rock acts are considered parody due to use of costumes, gory theatrics and macabre lyrics, Grave Robber make themselves an exception again with this great record.
Frenzied. Chaotic. Punk. The Undertaking!, San Diego's newest wild bunch, is about to release their debut album, and, if their live show is a premonition of any kind, the world will be opening up to one heck of a party with them. Contributing writer Andrew Voigt talks to vocalist Austin Visser about the band's new album, the reality of their music, and how they've been able to embrace their creative freedom.Full Feature More from The Undertaking
