Ice Grave, the debut from fledgling San Jose-based death metal outfit, SPINEBREAKER, is now spinning in its entirety through an exclusive album stream at Decibel Magazine, a week before its proper release via Creator-Destructor Records.
SPINEBREAKER’s Ice Grave debut provides a soundtrack of raw, sonic death-metal annihilation in a world of human filth, greed, and corruption. The aptly titled slab of glacially crushing death found on the record encapsulates the vibrant energy of the members’ youth unrelentingly expelled through a wall of monolithic distortion; an album prime for brand new fans of the death metal genre as well as veterans who have been around since its inception.

Having slithered into the Bay Area underground over the past two years, SPINEBREAKER’s explosive blend of European death metal is fueled through a sound and tendency for intense live performances out of love for an array of d-beat, punk, hardcore. Through the twelve tracks that form the band’s Ice Grave debut, the band reminds the listener of the glory days of 1990s Scandinavian, Swedish and American death metal in a way that is refreshing and punishing; not overly calculated, lightning-fast or technical, but reliably menacing and heavy. While the band varies in tempo, sometimes grooving into Heartwork-era down-tuned riffage, and other times blasting their way through an onslaught of tremolo and thrash, the songs never cease to impress in their ability to maintain brutally heavy, while diverse and violent in their own way.
