US sludge/doom metal band Come To Grief featuring members of the legendary Grief premiere the second single »Devastation Of Souls« taken from the forthcoming debut album, »When The World Dies«, set to release on May 20th, 2022 via Translation Loss Records.
Guitarist and backing vocalist Terry Savastano comments: “»Devastation Of Souls« is another scalding ode to the working man – the fool – namely me. Trying relentlessly day in and day out not to jump into fast moving traffic after pummeling the brain, heart and soul working a thankless and often miserable job. Not concentrating or even caring about the things you love and covet because you’re too broken and morally destroyed from a much-too-hard day’s work.”
From Translation Loss Records:
New England nihilistic, extreme sludge/doom band Come To Grief announce their highly-anticipated and long-awaited debut full-length album, »When The World Dies« – to be released on May 20, 2022.
Come To Grief have risen from the ashes of a hellish existence to bring seven tracks of sinister, hypnotic filth – dank with suffocating depravity. Powerful and catchy grooves lace each track with grimy black n’ roll undertones while vocalists Terry Savastano and Jonathan Hebert lay waste to tortured, spite-filled and personal lyrics – spitting true life stories and observations on the bleak, lack of humanity that plagues the earth.
Recorded and mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Nails) at GodCity Recording Studio and featuring Jacob Bannon (Converge, Wear Your Wounds), who contributes vocals that storm in like a whirlwind of chaotic ferver. A lurking rhythm section soldered together with smoldering riffs demands you to bang your head and proves »When The World Dies« is no pentatonic picnic – this is sonic annihilation.
