Living your music takes a lot of skill if you’re a band that combine hardcore, metal and punk. You have to drink hard, play hard and even play your songs. The songs have to sound dominating live and equally speaker tormenting. Generation Graveyard have all of this. Not only are Generation Graveyard finishing the mixing and recording of their new record, they’re also playing shows with local boys Artemis Redeemer and the mighty 69 Eyes.
Track three on the new record, The Empty gives you no time to prepare. Pounding drums and a riff that sounds more like a call to arms come at you instantly before you’ve even taken your finger back off the play button. This storm of sound is added to by dark and snarling vocals. Starting with the command ‘Come on’ they mirror the tracks tone perfectly. Swept along by The Empty Generation Graveyard fill you with a sense of contempt towards daily monotony and entrapment. You’ll feel angry. Angry enough to break the spell and get on it. As the track rolls into its last minute an increased sense of energy and intensity takes over before The Empty winds to a close.
Generation Graveyard explore the punk side of their nature with Deleatist. Sounding like a sonic punch to the face Deletist has a frantic and desperate determination to it. Alongside ADHD based drumming and a cutting riff the vocals charge down your ears on a sea of distortion urgency. As the chant of ‘Deleatist‘ goes up it is clear this track will smash venues and radicalise audiences. Deleatist drives the listener to rise up and be free and fills them fury and energy, to y’know just help it along. This isn’t a song to just hear. Deleatist makes the listener an active and empowered participant. At it’s core it is build on integrity and values. Get Deleatist now from Generation Graveyard’s Bandcamp.
