BrooklynVegan is hosting an advance stream of Methods Of Human Disposal, the debut LP from New York City-based blackened death/grind trio GRAVESEND. The exclusive stream precedes the album’s release through 20 Buck Spin this Friday.
One of the most disgustingly savage releases of the year, Methods Of Human Disposal was recorded in September 2020 by Nolan Voss of Thirty Legion, mixed by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Tomb Mold, Xibalba), and mastered by Brad Boatright (Obituary, Vastum, Terminal Nation).
GRAVESEND reveals, “We were in the midst of writing this record as the decline of the world was emanating. We think it serves as a fitting soundtrack to the bleak current state of affairs. If you had any glimmers of hope, put on this record and imagine a future that has you shackled into endless emotional and mental bondage.”
BrooklynVegan writes, “We named NYC black/death metal trio GRAVESEND‘s debut LP Methods Of Human Disposal one of the metal albums we’re anticipating this year, so we’re thrilled to be premiering a full stream of the LP ahead of this Friday’s release via 20 Buck Spin. As the pre-release singles suggested, this album is a whirlwind of filth, but with just enough clarity and precision to make these songs rise above the murk…”

GRAVESEND arises with ill intent like a foul emanation from the aging sewage filled rot slowly winding its way beneath the city’s vast concrete walls and pavement pathways; a New York of discarded needles, noxious fumes, scavenging rats, broken bottles, and cracked minds. An aural manifesto of urban blight and disgust, Methods Of Human Disposal is the appropriately grotesque follow-up to their cult-revered Preparations For Human Disposal 2020 demo. The LP works like a lone killer stalking the streets, internally seething with rage, preparing to cast off the last remnants of restraint. Bear witness to savage black/death metal with a hellish grindcore fixation, searing warped speeds, and the slowly swelling carnage of a derailed subway pileup. Like the centuries old cemetery that bears its name, the fetid stench of death and decay permeates GRAVESEND and the predatory wrath and inhumanity embodied in Methods Of Human Disposal holds up a shattered mirror reflecting back the filth and corruption of a New York that never really went away.
Watch for new updates on GRAVESEND to post over the months ahead.
