Graveyard After Graveyard combines the talents of Jocke Ringdahl (ex-Paganizer, Sinners Burn) on drums; the ubiquitous Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, Ribspreader, etc.) on guitar, bass, and vocals; and Mika Lagreen (ex-Facebreaker, Grave) on lead guitars and solos. They released a self-titled EP in 2014 and then a debut album last year as well — Bagged and Dragged To A Fullmoon Burial.
But Graveyard After Graveyard have written so many songs that another new release is already on the way. Soon, Chaos Records will be releasing another EP by the band entitled Hellhound On My Trail, from which we are delighted to premiere a track named “Out To Feed”.
There’s a lot of death metal pedigree in those names listed above, but “Out To Feed” goes off in a different direction, albeit one that’s no less nasty and extreme.
“Out To Feed” is a rough and raw romp that’s somewhere near the fetid intersection of speed metal and black thrash. The riffs are catchy as hell, and the minor-key melody gives the music a morbid, evil atmosphere, one that’s made even filthier by disgusting, degraded vocal excretions and a maggot-swarm of a solo. No fancy, gleaming production here — just an honest, blood-pumping murder machine of a song that drives fast and hard.
Hellhound On My Trial will be released by Chaos Records on February 23, 2015, and features cover art by Bob Toderico (Asphyx, Sinister, Soulburn, Mefisto). Here’s the track list:
1. Out to feed
2. Giant of the undead
3. Infernal catacombs
4. Screams in the night
5. Learn to burn
6. Feeding of the hellhounds
And here’s the song:
