Dark, lyrical doom-folk from the gothic desolation of rural Canada.
"Often coming across as a mournfully weary hybrid of Mark Lanegan and Genesis P-Orridge, Canadian musician, The Unquiet Grave makes relatively lo-fi meditative songs, often imbued with tropes from industrial music. '20,000 Years of Suffering' again has something of Throbbing Gristle's most song like works, intoning stream-of-consciousness atop mechanised beats and whirring analogue noises, while 'Celebrity Lie' pairs mumbled vocals with a strummed electric guitar. The album's ten pieces invoke strongly envisaged atmospheres, with The Unquiet Grave's persona coming across as perhaps the first to bridge the gap between North-American slacker songwriters and industrial music's rough aesthetic. The tape comes packaged beautifully in a tin box covered in real life bits of foliage and mock earth, as if unearthing something dead and buried for every listen." ~ The Quietus
"Wraithlike and enveloped in the dusk-dance solemnities of macabrely attuned spirit-surges, Whispers In The Wind is the last breath of manna before a trans-dimensional freefall through the nine circles of drone-buzz psychedelia. These epitaphs of contralto contortion slowly linger along the fine divide between ’80s gothcore and the post-neurosis of aphotic avant-garde ambience, suturing the two realms to the ashen trance of an extrasensory cannonade." ~ Weird Canada
