Hear the Fuzzed-out Post-punk of DEEPER GRAVES “Ode To War”

I love when artists take influence from multiple genres and create something beautifully different from them. That’s what DEEPER GRAVES has done – this solo project from Jeff Wilson (Chrome Waves, ex-Nachtmystium) blends post-punk and shoegaze in a delicious cocktail of brooding fuzz. Today we’re excited to be sharing the track “Ode To War,” featuring guest vocals from Bruce Lamont (Yakuza, Corrections House, Brain Tentacles). It’s off DEEPER GRAVES’ debut album Open Roads, which comes out via Disorder Recordings on July 3rd, and you can pre-order it here. “Ode to War” is cavernous and epic, and feels like a ghoulish rallying cry!

I’ve never really been a vocalist, always preferred to stay in the background with the guitar. This project had demos passed around in various stages under various titles to probably a dozen people, few of which actually produced any product or gave it a second thought. The vocals that ended up on here went far beyond my expectations and I just filled the gaps with a barrage of effects to mask a lack of talent in that department. These demos were repurposed over time to give the project a cohesive vibe that hopefully works on the fringes of many genres.
