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

Shimmering drones and angular melody lines dance and collapse against hazy ambiance and fractured glass surfaces; ecstatic meditations give way to deep noir melancholy and fiery avant expressionism. Arachnidiscs
"...a real feeling of exploration .... Some are busy with bells. Some are barely there...a very soft, spiritual atmosphere that should be your next soundtrack for falling asleep into lucid dreaming." Arachnidiscs
