New York City’s dark underbelly of yesterday are re-lived through the eyes of loathe and disdain. Crawling out from the sewers in 2020 and into the dispirited glow of the city’s darkness, GRAVESEND manifests a hate for the make-up of the urban landscape. Finding refuge within the city’s mortuary gates, GRAVESEND brings a harsh aural manifesto of urban disgust.
NJ // DC Death Metal
3 piece death, punk, sludge hybrid trio scattered around parts of the Midwest. Trying to play as loud as aggressive as possible. Interspersed with thoughts and introspections about humanity’s plight with the crushing machinations of empire.
Death//Grind from Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Chicago Death Metal.
Label: Sewer Rot Records.
Blackened-death metal band based out of Chicago. With lyrical inspiration rooted in existential abjection and terror, Selenoplexia blends stream-of-consciousness songwriting with the brutality of the genre’s staples. Founded in 2021 by guitarist Daniel and drummer Jonathan, the duo began writing the genesis of what would eventually become the band’s first EP – Agony. After adding the merciless vocals of Courtney and backbone of bassist Sawyer, Selenoplexia was complete and the band began polishing its sound and actualizing the goal of a primal, intense live experience. The quartet released “Agony” in 2022 with the help of Nick Ayala at Massacre Studios (recording) and Floor van Kuijk at GLDCHN (mixing & mastering).
