So Real, It’s Now, the debut full-length from San Jose deathgrind/punk unit DEATHGRAVE — featuring members of Brainoil and Amber Asylum among others — will see release via Tankcrimes tomorrow! The fourteen-track crusher was captured at Earhammer Studios in Oakland (Necrot, Autopsy) by DEATHGRAVE guitarist/renowned sound engineer Greg Wilkinson (Brainoil, ex-Laudanum, ex-Graves At Sea).
On the eve of its release, Revolver is streaming So Real, It’s Now in its menacing entirety noting, “Incorporating crust and never shying away from a slower doom break or a straight-up hardcore stomp, DEATHGRAVE‘s latest effort So Real, It’s Now is definitely more unique than the legions of post-Assück or Napalm worship. The Autopsy influence looms large, as do names like Grief, Doom, Siege, Spazz, and much more across the under thirty minutes and fourteen-tracks.”
Adds Wilkinson, “Click here to open a portal straying far from sanity. On the other side you will find a bizarre and beautifully twisted sonic journey.”
