Gravesend's no-frills mix of death, grind, and war metal immediately had a fan in me. Their songs are hard-hitting and devoid of fluff - even as they're accompanied by noise and unsettling synth parts.

I spoke with the members of Gravesend (who are referred to by the initials A, S, and G) about how their sound is a reflection of living in New York, and why they chose to play instruments they usually don't for this band. We also spoke about why they'll probably always be a trio, and why they headed to Philadelphia to record their latest album Gowanus Death Stomp.

My thanks to Gravesend for speaking with me, and to you for listening.
