RICHMOND, VA | OCTOBER 8, 2021: Today GraveBound mark the beginning of a new chapter with the drop of their unyielding metalcore track “Casualty.” The song embodies the most beloved characteristics of the metalcore genre with bone-chilling riffs, snarling growls, and a tempo built for a mosh pit. The lyrics describe the unquenchable thirst for power within the music industry that can leave unsuspecting artists feeling like casualties of deceit:
“This song is about false promises, primarily within the music industry. Someone can promise you something and when it doesn’t come to fruition, you are left exposed and ultimately covered in shame. These ‘snakes’ in the industry (as well as life in general) will only take from you until you’re bled dry and ‘Casualty’ was written to show how one can acknowledge their wrongdoing and fight back to get what is deserved.” - GRAVEBOUND
GraveBound are carving a new path and claiming a spot amongst the metalcore giants. The Richmond, Virginia based band will stop at nothing to reach new heights with their unique melding of sub-genres within the metal realm. Their distinct mix of punishing riffs and dreamy synth-pop set them apart from the rest. The band delivers beautiful and unique melody lines, soaring choruses, and heavy breakdowns, while never sacrificing quality lyrical content. Their muses include industry titans like Architects, Ice Nine Kills, and Wage War.
After the successful release of “Phobia” in 2019, the momentum increased and many new avenues opened up for the band. As things began to pick up, the world stopped, which led to a lineup change. With the inability to perform came an abundance of content and “Failure by Design” was released. After releasing two more singles and a cover, the next wave of momentum swept them into their next chapter.
Add their collaborations with producer Kile Odell (Motionless In White) into the mix and it’s clear that GraveBound is staking their claim in the music scene.
