Howling through the void only to reach in to your soul and bring you despair and chaotic darkness is Grave Spirit. Grave Spirit was formed in molten darkness and sickening malevolence in early 2017, and late that same year these shadow dwellers unleashed their debut EP The Beast Unburdened By Flesh. This EP consists of only two tracks that sew together black metal and elements of death metal to create horrifying corpse raising metal for your sick twisted mind. Upon pressing play, Grave Spirit doesn’t waste a minute to shroud you in their hell fire baptized soul shredding tunes. From the first note on, Grave Spirit does a great job of gnashing at your flesh, never relenting until the final note has rang through and rattled through your skull.
Each of the two tracks on this release are terrorizing and pure blackened chaos. Though there are only two tracks within this title, you are sure to leave the listen with your head spinning dangling from a thread. The Beast Unburdened By Flesh is an unrelenting beast to be reckoned with. With just two tracks to its name it packs more than a hellish punch with each of the two tracks invoking the wrath of the wicked and damned. The Beast Unburdened By Flesh rips, roars and tears straight through whatever amount of humanity that you had left, instilling only darkness and dread in your mind.
This EP is a great foreshadowing of what is hopefully to come from these blasting heathens. This is a solid effort through and through from the musicianship to the production. It will be great to see where Grave Spirit takes things from here, but if this EP is any indication of what is to come, I’m sure we can expect more great blackened metal.
