Auckland hardcore band Graves recently released their third album, Fides Ad Nauseam. Filled with violent bursts of grinding noise, Fides Ad Nauseam is intense, to say the least.
Music 101 metal correspondent Craig Hayes caught up with Graves' guitarist Josh to discuss the band's brain-battering sound, Graves' lyrical vitriol, and where they see themselves sitting on the punk/metal spectrum.
Song: Hatred, Collapse, Flesh, Choke, Scorn, Vermin, Suffer, Skitliv, A Nation Sleeps
Album: Fides Ad Nauseam
