GRIEVING - Songs For The Weary (Mini Review) & Vinyl Release Details From Interstellar Smoke Records

Mini Review

Doom/Stoner Metallers GRIEVING new album Songs For The Weary is a slightly darker take on the Doom/Stoner Metal sound with a Heavy Occult Rock Twinge. The album moves between Hard Rock and Heavy Metal with GRIEVING showing supreme confidence from start to finish.

The vocals are clean based but with a menacing tone behind them when the album moves fully into the Occult Rock arena. The Gothic Tinged atmosphere allows GRIEVING to create a more satisfying and richer full sound with a dark Psychedelic undertone as well. The music is quite melodic in places but also shows a rather cool Muscular Groove that brings a more meatier and muscular tone especially on the 1st half of the album.

GRIEVING's debut album is a tad too short at under 29 minutes in length. A couple of more songs would have benefited this album greatly but that's my only minor complaint for this album.

Overall, Songs For The Weary is a gutsy adventure into the darker side of Stoner Metal with plenty of Doom Metal attitude to match.

Fantastic stuff.

Words by Steve Howe
