More About the Album
Out of the Mouth of Graves is what you would refer to as a dissonant death metal supergroup. Its three members have been part of numerous high-profile acts such Psionic Madness, Acausal Intrusion and Maggot Crown to name just a few.
The trio come together again to present us with a filthy, dissonant, experimental brand of cavernous death metal. The entire album is dripping in murky atmosphere and swamp-like distortion and feedback.
The guitar and drum work are completely unpredictable and all consuming. They become a swirling, disorienting maelstrom that surrounds the listener. They play off of each other to form a united front against you as make your way through the release.
The dual vocal assault has much the same effect, battering the listener from every side. The contrast of the two is what really makes it work. A deeply guttural, almost gurgled style that rumbles beneath a raw, aggressive shrieked style.
If you have to draw comparisons to more established acts, one could say that the release feels like Portal meets Ulcerate and Impetuous Ritual, a combination that should have many extreme metal fans very excited.
On the whole, this is an example of a perfect unison of chaotic and deliberate energy. While at first glance it may seem unhinged, you realise very quickly that there are numerous smaller moments of melody that each exist in isolation of each other. That bridge of dissonance between those moments is what makes them shine so brightly.
So, dive headfirst into the muck and mire of Harbinger Uncerimonious today and experience its full suffocating glory.
