Gravecore are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of grind, death metal and hardcore and this is a review of their self released 2014 ep "Bad Songs From Corners Of Hell".
Drum beats and distorted bass guitars start off the ep before adding in aggressive hardcore shouts that evolved into grindcore screams along with a good amount of blast beats which also leads up to a heavier guitar sound which is also heavily influenced by old school death metal and the band also brings in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Bass guitars have a very powerful presence on this recording as well as being one of the main instruments and they music also utilizes a lot of the raw aggression of early death metal and grindcore bands as well as having their songs being very short with the longest one being almost 4 minutes long and as the ep progresses more death metal growls are added into the bands musical sound.
Gravecore takes the 80's style of grindcore and mixes it with old school death metal and the raw energy of punk rock to create their own sound, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover gore, violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion Gravecore are a very great sounding mixture of grind, old school death metal and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fuck You" "Jesus Hendrix" "Hate, Guide Me" and "Hate Corruption". 8 out of 10.
