GRAVES AT SEA To Release The Curse That Is, Share Title Track

It is about time the world was given a proper Graves At Sea full-length album. After a series of demos and splits in the early-to-mid 2000’s (including an excellent split with funeral doom band, Asunder), the group went through some lineup changes and continued to tour the world. Almost fifteen years has passed since the sludgy doom group’s inception, and finally, in 2016, the Portland quartet are releasing The Curse That Is. Accompanying the announcement of the album, was the release of the album’s title-track.


The song is an eleven-minute beast of a track that is rife with grimy and gritty guitars and bass that come compliments of Nick Phit and Jeff McGarrity, respectively. Drummer Bryan Sours sets the pace for the song with his thunderous patterns and rolls while vocalist Nathan Misterek howls of self-loathing, ultimately forcing the listener to succumb to misery. While it is a long song, Graves At Sea does incredibly well to keep the listener intrigued and interested in their offering. A wonderfully positive sign for the rest of the album.

The Curse That Is arrives April 1 through Relapse Records and can be preordered in multiple formats hereGraves At Sea will also be going on a two-week tour in April in support of their album, so be sure to keep an eye out once spring rolls around.
