Only four tracks, five if you count the intro, they don’t hang about, but they contain some excellent tunes. If this is the direction Upon Your Grave is going...

Upon Your Grave hail from Quebec and has stated that is a fresh start for the band has not released anything since their debut album back in 2013. With the help of a successful GoFundMe page, they enlisted the help of engineer Chris Donaldson, who has worked with a huge list of people plus he is the guitarist for the mighty Cryptopsy, to help record this blistering new EP.

Kicking off with a forty-second acoustic intro – ‘Revived’ then immediately goes into ‘From Beyond’ which is a chugging banger of a tune with some serious guitar work and loads of double kick drum action. ‘Pandora’ is more aggressive with a riff Slayer would kill for and watch how it slows to a heavy grind halfway through before things get serious again on ‘Supremacy’ which is rapid and vicious with a superb solo from Sim Diamond, reminding of Rob Dukes era Exodus. ‘Transcend’ is not hippy, trippy as the title would suggest instead it’s all-out brutality with a sing-a-long chorus!

Only four tracks, five if you count the intro, they don’t hang about, but they contain some excellent tunes. If this is the direction Upon Your Grave is going then they will be at the top very soon. Let’s have some more soon!

 

Score: 8/10
