Now less than two weeks from its official street date, Terrorizer Magazine has excavated the crushing hymns from Alone In The Grave, the debut 12” from Olympia, Washington’s BONE SICKNESS, from their tomb. Having tagged and bagged some of the most legit, goresoaked American death metal of our times, infusing the brutality with the punk/D.I.Y. nature of Repulsion, Autopsy, Infest and Napalm Death and more than the legions of clones stripping their riffs from Gothenburg’s templates, Alone In The Grave aborts seven tracks in eighteen minutes.
Spew the BONE SICKNESS message and succumb to the putridity of Alone In The Grave — alongside a track-by-track breakdown of the album — RIGHT HERE.
Ahead of its official street date of April 30th, the crypt keeper at 20 Buck Spin is shipping Alone In The Grave early; ‘get down with the sickness’ HERE.
In addition to BONE SICKNESS’ slot supporting mythological occult metallers Absu in Seattle next Thursday, April 25th, additional on-stage encounters from the horde will be declared in the coming weeks. Bring a shovel.
BONE SICKNESS Live:
4/25/2013 Highline – Seattle, WA w/ Absu
“…largely the Olympia, WA quartet avoid the customs charges on importing the Stockholm sound wholesale in favor of homespun frights… whatever you were doing before pressing play seems a distant memory, just lost, swallowed in Bone Sickness’s impenetrable riff-fog. 8/10” – Decibel
“…plodding, churning death metal gives way to dirty d-beat tempos while deranged barks from vocalist Sam Osborne… scrape paint off the walls.” – Pitchfork
“…a pure bred DM record, rather the concision and brevity of grindcore has influenced Bone Sickness’ decision to reel in the running time and shoehorn in as much savagery as humanly possible.” – Cvlt Nation
“You cannot stop to rest for even for just a few quick breaths; Bone Sickness will find you and kill you.” – ThrashPunx
“…I’ve been getting inundated with old-school death metal of the Swedish and American variety, and it’s all started to blend together. But one thing I haven’t been getting as much of is death metal that has heavy grindcore and punk leanings which is why Bone Sickness made an immediate impression.” – Cosmos Gaming
