DEEPER GRAVES – the solo project of Jeff Wilson of Chrome Waves, Contrition, and formerly of Nachtmystium, Wolvhammer, Abigail Williams, and more – will release its second album, The Colossal Sleep through Disorder Recordings in late January 2022.
Far removed from the metal output he is known for releasing over the past two decades or more, with DEEPER GRAVES, Wilson creates 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 like Bauhaus and Joy Division.
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 Jeff Wilson handling vocals, guitars, bass, synth/keys, programming, and all other instrumentation. Entirely 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.”
