CVLT Nation Premiere Streaming:
GRAVES AT SEA’s ‘Tempest’

Ok, I’m going to be that dude and let you know that GRAVES AT SEA’s soon to be released LP The Curse That Is is the Best Doom Album of 2016. It’s been a long time coming, but these guys have it all laid on the line and you can hear it and feel it in every riff! It’s such an honest collection of songs that there’s no way not to feel it deep in your bones. For those reading this on the East coast, GRAVES AT SEA will be headed your way starting April 11th. My new sonic addiction is The Curse That Is because I just can’t get enough. When you hear this album, you will realize how every song is full of so many different textures and layers. While it’s an extremely heavy experience, they made sure to create beautiful spaces that allow the pain of breath. When you hear the somber doom ballad “The Ashes Made Her Beautiful” that lasts over 15 minutes, it will all make sense to you. Right now all you have to do is press play below and you will be able to blast the SICK New GRAVES AT SEA song “Tempest,” which is a 7 minute banger! Our comrades Relapse Records are releasing The Curse That Is on April 20th, but you can pre-order the record HERE! Stay tuned for our full review…this only the beginning!

    I can already tell this is going to be Relapse Records’ best release since “The Crash And The Draw” by Minsk. So shut up and take my money 😉

    How can that be true when Conan’s new record already came out?

      Before I’d heard anything.
      Money is irrelevant all I need is riffs.

    One of the most underrated bands around in my opinion.

    Graves at Sea is indeed killer, especially live but Witchcraft Nucleus is better than the GaS tracks I’ve heard so far…

    Haven’t heard this yet, but it’ll be tough to beat Blizaro.
