Battlegrave – Australian Thrash/Death-Metal Unit Stream Entire New Album “Cavernous Depths” Via No Clean Singing
Australian thrash/death-metal duo Battlegrave is now streaming their entire second album “Cavernous Depths” a few days ahead of the release date this Friday, July 22nd on vinyl, CD and digital via Bitter Loss Records.
“Cavernous Depths” is now playing in its entirety at No Clean Singing, who commented “…this is an album you go to when you want to just let go of your mind, let it go wild, give it a spin in a turbocharged centrifuge of chaos — and get beat to a pulp while you do that. It’s an extravagant spectacle, driven to heights of head-exploding excess by the brain-piercing, breathtaking solos, but astutely laced with slower, emotionally chilling diversions that provide a few necessary gulps of oxygen.”
The follow-up to 2018’s debut album “Relics of a Dead Earth” was recorded and produced by Julian Renzo at Legion Studio Productions (Harlott, Desecrator, Blackhelm, Decimatus) and mastered by Ermin Hamidovic at Systematic Productions (Plini, Cynic, Sylosis, Periphery, Architects), and sees drummer 66Samus (Decrepit Birth, Goatwhore, Abigail Williams) joining the duo comprised of Clint Patzel (guitars, bass and keys) and Rohan Buntine (vocals and lyrics) in the studio, while all guitar leads were written and recorded by Daniel Mackie (Triple Kill).
If you missed it, a music video for leading single and title track “Cavernous Depths” is still playing at this location.
Battlegrave is a thrash/death-metal project formed in late 2016 by Clint Patzel and Rohan Buntine, two great friends with a long-standing passion for metal music. It is an artistic outlet to create music together while honoring the aggressive thrash and death metal bands that the members grew up listening to. The original goal was to write one song, which turned into the “To Hell With War” EP in 2017. After receiving strong reviews, the debut full-length “Relics of a Dead Earth” was written, recorded and self-released in November of 2018. The album also garnered some enthusiastic reactions and after more than three years, Battlegrave are back, and they sound more aggressive and furious than ever before.
