For another preview of “Dreamcrash” – and to purchase the album in various formats! – head over to: metalblade.com/gravepleasures, where the first single, “New Hip Moon“, is streaming.
Formed out of the debris of Beastmilk – the band that had indie fans, goths, punks and music press praising 2013′s Climax – Grave Pleasures consists of singer/songwriter Mat McNerney (also of Hexvessel), bassist Valtteri Arino, guitarist/songwriter Linnea Olsson (The Oath, Sonic Ritual), drummer Uno Bruniusson (In Solitude, Procession), as well as live and studio session guitarist Juho Vanhanen (Oranssi Pazuzu). This impressive line-up created a complex and feverish set of modern rock songs, found on their debut, Dreamcrash. Urban tribal rhythms, potent melancholia, raw pop sensibility, irreverent ferociousness – Dreamcrash is seductive in its surrealism one minute, and a cold shower of harsh reality the next.
