Endless Procession of Souls
Grave is another band like Napalm Death to me, in that I prefer them live over their studio performances. Man, they were great when I saw them in 2011. I think this album is stronger than their last few efforts, but it's nothing outstanding. I really like the instrumental intro, and track 2 Amongst Marble and The Dead is fucking excellent. Opening is simple and heavy and then gets very fast rather quickly. I was super excited after this one, but it went downhill from there. Don't get me wrong, there are good songs and plenty of good riffs on this album, but everything from track 5 on seemed a little stale and repetitve. Still a decent album and worth a spin now and then. Hope these guys tour North America again soon, as I just missed them a few months ago.
