Century Media has wisely signed Grave Pleasures, one of the best bands in the world right now. Arguably the current buzz band of death rock (and actually really good), Grave Pleasures return with Motherblood this year. Recently the band has been supporting Killing Joke and has been molting into a new era.
Motherblood was recorded at Orgone Studios in the UK (Ghost, Paradise Lost, Ulver). It has been scheduled to a worldwide release for late September/early October 2017.
Mat McNerney comments on the albums concept and music:
“Like the great sacrament of ancient times that was the blood sacrifice of the mother, we too have laid down our most holy flesh at your feet. This record, which is a bold re-definition of death-rock and our totemic challenge to our pretenders, shall be our most grand and sordid testament. If you have never danced with the skeletons, then this album is your gateway drug to all the nihilistic pleasures of the grave. Apocalyptic post-punk never sounded so desperately bleak and wild yet never grinned so maniacally and writhed so fervently with tongues that whip the tombs. The Kali figure of our cover is the eternal icon of nuclear fear. She presides over the religion of an apocalyptic future. A desolate future we proudly celebrate with caustic music of the most furious punk. Come imbibe and wash your mind in our Motherblood. We’re dancing in the lion’s mouth. The elevator only goes down.”
