Beyond The Grave - Sands of Desolation

Simmering below the national metal conciousness are British metal band Beyond The Grave, earning a rave review in Metal Mag Terrorizer, and booked to support acts as diverse as Cradle of Filth, Cult of Luna, Sylosis, Dry Kill Logic and even chosen to be the closing band at the 2007 Hard rock Festival, Beyond The Grave's fresh stylish originality has been recognised by the industry and everyone wants a piece of them. Now able to headline their own gigs such is their reputation, the Sands of Desolation 4 track EP has continued to be circulated amongst the metal fraternity.

The Sands Of Desolation EP has four infectious tracks of pure unblanched British metal, raw around the edges with the fire and passion of quality musicians, in some sense the opening track Before My Eyes reminds me of early Thrash metal with its non stop pacey twin guitars, melodic and well built guitar solo's threaded through the right places. This is real classic metal tunes with modern attitude, growling passions mixed with tuneful, audience embracing singing and plenty of rhythmic head nodding moments.

Perhaps to compete on the international stage the band might need to 'phatten' the sound when it comes to the recordings, but there is an element of a 'Live' feel in this production and I don't want to criticize that, although by no means perfect there is nothing that a big label re-mix can't put right and if the band do sign, this EP will be a collectors item.

The four track's are different from each other and show the bands qualities to write and perform a range of clever melodic tunes, while Adam on vocals has a good singing range with the ability to growl and roar with the best of them when required. All four tracks can be found on the bands Myspace page and is a must to check out.
