Your last Ep was ridiculously tight and your live show is phenomenal but this track is next level. You’ve nailed your sound and it’s better than I could have imagined. Please keep doing the things that you do. Also, thank you for giving me an anthem for my crappy days.

I personally love your sound and i cannot wait to see me. Colour me absolutely impressed.

Mostly because every time I tried to pen something, anything at all, everything just came out like a screaming teenager at a Beatles concert. Whether you’re writing about Joey Johns, Kmart, Family, or your deepest and darkest your songwriting is always wonderful, heartfelt and with just the right amount of sarcasm to appeal to every cynic. Also, I am (im)patiently waiting on your new music to be recorded.

And for good reason too. Their 2012 debut studio album “Nameless Graves” was full of solid tracks and their live performances are unrelenting and every release since then has seen an evolution in the band’s sound and their approach to song writing . For me though, it’s more about what this band represent and stand for than their actual music. These guys are Newcastle music!

Full Disclosure – Grim Demise’s bass player, Mungo, is a lifelong friend of mine… But then again I’m far from being a metal fan so I stand behind what I’ve said above.
