New video and tour dates this week
Infectiously talented melodic metal bruisers Griever are delighted to announce their new EP Soul Searcher, set for release on May 27.
In celebration of the news, the band have unveiled their new video, ‘A Pure Heart’. First premiered via Metal Hammer, you can now watch the vid here.
A band who grab hold and don’t let go, Griever follow in the tradition of the finest melodic metal. Reminiscent of the heyday of the Gothenburg Sound, Soul Searcher is a pummeling yet highly melodic release. From the whirlwind of the first, eponymous track, to the ominous slow march of ‘She Is Death’ to the cathartic highs of ‘A Pure Heart’, this is a release bursting with potential that belies its relatively brief length.
A fine amalgamation of sounds from the West (Trivium), North (In Flames) and UK (Malefice), Soul Searcher is a deceptively straightforward record: no-filler, no-frills metal. A crowdpleaser of an album from a band who get straight to the point.
Griever have previously supported Unearth, Being as an Ocean, Crossfaith, and more, and have recently announced an April UK headline tour with goth rockers The Dead XIII. With fans all over the world (including merchandise worn on the slopes of Mount Everest), Griever are a band deserving to only get bigger and bigger.
