Graveslave are a band from Minnesota that plays a mixture of brutal death metal and grindcore and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Corpseborne" which was released by Zero Budget Records.
A very heavy and brutal grindcore sound starts off the ep along with some morbid sounding melodies that bring elements of death metal into the music and there are a great amount of blast beats in the faster sections of the songs and the vocals also bring in a great mixture of growls and high pitched screams.
When mid tempo parts are utilized you can hear elements of slam in the bands musical style and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them, when solos and leads are utilized they bring in an early 80's British metal feeling to the tracks while they also bring in more modern and technical influences at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the whole ep remains true to a very heavy and brutal musical style.
Graveslave plays a musical style that takes both old school and modern brutal death metal and mixes it in with grindcore to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover gore themes.
In my opinion Graveslave are a very great sounding brutal mixture of death metal and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "All That I Despise" and "Divine Flesh". 8 out of 10.
