New Noise Magazine is currently hosting the premiere of “Corridors,” the latest single from post-punk/post-metal act DEEPER GRAVES, pulled from the act’s impending The Colossal Sleep, nearing release through Disorder Recordings at the end of the month.
DEEPER GRAVES is the solo venture of Jeff Wilson, formerly of Nachtmystium, Wolvhammer, Abigail Williams, and others, and a founding member of current acts Chrome Waves, Contrition, and Altars Of The Moon. Differing from the more metallic output most of his résumé offers, DEEPER GRAVES presents lush soundscapes and slow-paced rock movements that venture further into the realms of his post-punk, shoegaze, and alternative influences, with elements tracing to foundational acts Bauhaus, Joy Division, The Sisters of Mercy, Christian Death, and the like.
The Colossal Sleep delivers six new songs which further develop and expand upon the melodic and melancholic foundations built on DEEPER GRAVES’ Open Roads debut, with Wilson handling vocals, guitars, bass, synth/keys, programming, and all other instrumentation. Engineered, mixed, and mastered by Wilson at the Disorder Recordings headquarters, the record is completed with cover art by Awo Prosatega and layout by Wilson, and features guest vocals from Heath Rave (Lotus Thrones, ex-Wolvhammer) on the tracks “Escape Velocity” and “Corridors.”
With the new single, Wilson reveals, “‘Corridors’ was the first collab with Heath for this album. I wanted to bring more hooks on this record and his verse along with harmonies over what I already had for the chorus really knocked this one out of the park.”
