8 Vacant Graves

8 Vacant Graves (Metal) - Asheville, North Carolina




Forming in the mountains of WNC, Drummer Jacob Moneymaker and guitarist Jason Sirgo formed 8 Vacant Graves with the idea to take all their musical influences that inspired them. The two were then joined by bassist Nick Aust, and vocalist Anthony Worley later in 2017. This group of miscreants has everything from the balls to the walls blast beats rattling the nails loose from coffins. Heavy and melodic guitar riffs beckoning 'ol bones to move. Grooving bass lines that'll brake up the mud in those ears to the haunting vocals to rattle any old brain bucket. 8 Vacant Graves will take you on a musical joy ride like a bat straight out of hell.

Upcoming Shows:
6/29/18 - Clayton Beverage - Clayton, NC
8/10/18 - Odditorium - Asheville, NC (Record release show)



"Lucid Nightmare" Single Review
8 Vacant Graves are an unapologetic Metal band from the rich Metal state of North Carolina. While their EP will soon be released, let's dive in to their recently released lead single "Lucid Nightmare" to get a better idea of what the band is all about. The track kicks off with a nice guitar riff and subsequent breakdown before adding the harsh vocals to get things going. The melodic, chugging riffs keep things on track as aggression nears a tipping point when the next breakdown hits. The track has shades of Zao and early Between The Buried And Me in it as it steers full speed ahead. The ending of the track goes off the rails with an absolute bonkers of a breakdown. If this track is a glimpse into the heaviness of the rest of the EP, then fans of heavier music will eat this up in no time flat.

Verdict:
8 Vacant Graves strike quickly and often with their new blistering single.
