"documents of grief" was self-released by the band back in 2003 and quickly sold-out and hasn't been seen since. The band followed it up with a release for the Southern Lord 7" series and then with the highly praised split with ASUNDER.

deep in the shallow end (2009/CHAINSAW SAFETY)
POST-HARDCORE. Atlanta's GRAY GHOST continues their slow, dark sound towards oblivion with their 2nd release. Still loosely based in the realm of hardcore, the band's sound is a progressive mixture of drone, hardcore, and metal. "deep in the shallow end" shows the band adding more complex layers to their songwriting process. Lyrically the record announces an unapologetic reaction to our modern day, dysfunctional world. Each song bleeds into the next to retain a choke hold effect. Cover art by Ryan Patterson adds to the bleak harsh nature of the music inside.
s/t (2008/COOPER LUNG)

Heavy and loud with lulling atmospheric interludes - in one word: epic! Vinyl includes a MP3 download card.

GREAT DECEIVER, THE
life is wasted (2007/DEATHWISH)
HARDCORE/METAL. THE GREAT DECEIVER are the vision of vocal legend Tomas Lindberg (AT THE GATES, DISFEAR etc.). THE GREAT DECEIVER have constantly evolved since their inception, progressing past the trends of the day, they have made a career of defying limiting classifications. With releases on labels as diverse as Trustkill and Peaceville they've solidified their reputation as a force to be reckoned with in both the metal and hardcore worlds. Appealing to both scenes lethally and equally as a new kind of aggressive aural amalgamation. "Life is wasted on the living" takes their trend killing approach to new heights. Combining the intensity of hardcore, the power of metal, and the hook-laden repetition of industrial into a new kind of musical apocalypse.
GREAT EXPLAINER, THE
the way things swell (2010/CHUNKSAAH)
PUNK/MELODYCORE. Smearing the lines between punk and hardcore, New Jersey's THE GREAT EXPLAINER use dual contrasting vocals, complex and aggressive guitar work, and a powerfully locked-in rhythm section all with an overlying sense of melody that brings to mind HOT WATER MUSIC, LATTERMAN and SMALL BROWN BIKE. Colored 10" includes MP3 download code.
to the ends of the earth (2012/D.I.Y.)
HARDCORE. GREAT REVERSALS from DEtroit drawing inspiration from bands like TRIAL, MODERN LIFE IS WAR, BANE and a bit of QUICKSAND, meld dense riffs, soaring melody, raw emotion and reflective lyrics with hopes of replicating the spirit of '90s hardcore. "to the ends of the earth" lyrically deals with the drummer's raising his deaf, autistic son, capturing his feelings of angst, grief, hope, and perseverance amidst adverse circumstances. These 4 songs are the best to date and you'll be impressed by the intensity and energy these songs are played.
