LISTENING TO EARLY GRAVES IS NOT “PURE HELL”
There is nothing about this song I don’t love, but without a doubt, the moment I was 110% sold on the track was when the guitar solo kicked in; it’s just so fucking sloppy – and I mean that as a compliment. Pulling off a solo that a) sounds chaotic but b) still has structure is not the easiest thing in the world to do, but it has certainly been achieved here. And it’s immediately followed by, if not quite an elephants marching riff, then certainly an elephants galloping riff, which, if you know me but at all, you already know is like icing on the delicious cake for me.
Headbang here, then weigh in with your thoughts in the comments section below. “Pure Hell” will appear on Early Graves’ new album, Red Horse, which comes out October 30 on No Sleep. Early Graves will appear at the MetalSucks/Metal Injection/1000 Knives CMJ Showcase with Pig Destroyer, KEN Mode, and Encrust; tickets are on sale here.
