The second album by London/Brighton heavy contingent GRAVE LINES follows on from their 2016 debut 'Welcome To Nothing' and sees the band expand their sound across nine weighty, yet darkly melodic tracks. Coming in at just shy of an hour. FED INTO THE NIHILIST ENGINE is a must listen for fans of all things heavy, however anybody seeking music that delves into the darker and more introspective aspects of the human condition will find much to love within its expansive tracks. At times quiet and melancholy, at times an oppressive and miserable onslaught of crushing riffs and filth-laden grooves. Fans of Yob to Neurosis, even Bauhaus or Dead Can Dance, take heed, FITNE reaches out to encompass elements of them all. Made up of Julia Owen, Jake Harding, Oliver Irongiant and Stgr’n Matt, Grave Lines are no strangers to the heavy music scene - previous bands include Throne, Sea Bastard, Dead Existence, Casual Nun, Landskap, War Wolf, Dysteria and The Death Letter. Lyrically introspective, dark and challenging, vocalist Jake Harding states … “The album is an exploration into our relationship with negativity. The Nihilist Engine is symbolic of our greatest flaw and the self-defeating nature of our species. This machine represents both the inner turmoil of the human spirit and our struggle to understand the darkness spreading from external forces. Self-perpetuating and infectious, these feelings contaminate and spread. A relentless machine drawing us in and chewing up our poisoned remains.” Grave Lines are back with a record which promises to take you on an exploratory journey deep within the inner realms of your own psyche. "…a fine introduction to a band who will undoubtedly soon be one of the brightest stars in the London underground." Noisey // "Their debut is certainly more than the sum of its parts, taking in huge Neurosis-esque riffs, and a gloomy, gothic melodicism that is all their own " Terrorizer
