Degraey - “Reveries”
Barcelona band Degraey thunders back on the scene with their sophomore release Reveries-a sweet dream/brutal nightmare of slow-burning post-metal.
At almost an hour long with only six tracks, Reveries organically waxes and wanes from mellow shoe gaze to raucous rock; from clean, melodic vocals to tormented screams.
The first track Nurture exemplifies this dynamic to a T, starting with some ambient guitar and synth before kicking into overdrive with the full band pounding and hellishly howling away. It then settles into a nice contemplative groove before turning the heat on again to a full boil and then simmering into a segue to the next song.
Post-metal devotees and newcomers alike will appreciate the chops and heart of Degraey-a band establishing themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the genre.
