After a short tour in the UK in support of the band Black Moth, which received very positive reviews, the band Grave Lines have announced their upcoming record “Fed Into the Nihilist Engine” coming out on the 4th of May through New Heavy Sounds.
Grave Lines are a band from London and Brighton and are made up of Julia Owen, Jake Harding, Oliver Irongiant and Stgr’n Matt, all of whom come from different great names in the heavy music scene, including Throne, Sea Bastard, Dead Existence, Casual Nun, Landskap, War Wolf, Dysteria and The Death Letter, and have through the influences of each of them have crafted their own dark, heavy doom/sludge sound.
Their debut album “Welcome to Nothing”, which can be heard in its entirety on the band’s Bandcamp, was released in 2016 to great reception and marked the band as one to watch out for. Now with their second album “Fed Into the Nihilist Engine” the band promises to deliver 9 new tracks of dark introspection, of which vocalist Jake Harding said:
The album is an exploration into our relationship with negativity. The Nihilist Engine is symbolic of our greatest flaw and the self defeating nature of our species. This machine represents both the inner turmoil of the human spirit and our struggle to understand the darkness spreading from external forces. Self perpetuating and infectious, these feelings contaminate and spread. A relentless machine drawing us in and chewing up our poisoned remains.
Along with the album release date announcement, the band released a video for their title track. The video was directed by Noomi Spook.
The album will be out on the 4th of May on a limited edition cream and green double vinyl and black vinyl versions which will include free digital download, as well as on CD and digital, and can now be pre-ordered through the following links:
