Grave Pleasures, Electrowerkz, London - 7th November 2017

An unusual venue but really good sound and atmosphere. Gold Key were an excellent support and Grave Pleasure were as excellent as expected. A good mix of tracks from Dreamcrash and Motherblood as well as some Beastmilk for good measure.

Fab night

There are still those rare bands out there in the world that have a unique ability to combine macabre, mystifying rock with a more pop-oriented flare, a la early Bowie or early The Cure. Grave Pleasures are such a band that is equally suited for playing on a stadium stage, or in some Lynchian nightmare. It’s that duality and electrifying contradiction that makes their music so exhilarating.

Artist Bio

Self-styled apocalyptic post punks Beastmilk, now called Grave Pleasures, were one of the most talked-about bands in recent times. Their "painful war-cry of the eternally doomed,” as one journalist described it, resonated with fans of all music genres. Formed in Helsinki in 2010, their 2013 debut album “Climax” received rave reviews across the board. Metalheads, indie kids and gothic punks were all dancing to the funeral drum as the Finnish band spearheaded a new wave of rock music.

2015 marked the end of an era " and the beginning of a new " as guitarist Johan “Goatspeed” Snell left early in the year. The group changed its name to Grave Pleasures, and embarked on a musical journey sure to surpass any previous efforts. Original members Mat ”Kvohst” McNerney on vocals and bassist Valtteri Arino, along with Swedish guitarist and songwriter Linnéa Olsson (formerly of The Oath), set out to create their favourite band; A pack of fearless players, with a non-regulated sense of creativity and energy. Open-minded punks, skilled and hungry to take this death rock party to the next level. They found what they were looking for in session guitarist Juho Vanhanen " a musician by profession with a tasteful sense of haunting melodies and eerie sounds. His screaming Telecaster is one of the trademarks of the much respected psychedelic black metal outfit Oranssi Pazuzu.

And they found it in Uno Bruniusson " arguably one of the best rock drummers of his generation. Having co-founded and played in Sweden's In Solitude for the entire 13 years of its existence, Uno helped not only revive heavy metal, but ultimately re-shape it into something far more urgent and current. His drumming was a constant cause of jaw-dropping admiration during the 2014 autumn tour that In Solitude and Beastmilk did together.

Together, they've written what will be the first album under the name Grave Pleasures " a complex and feverish set of modern rock songs, complete with immediate pop sensibility, a melancholic undercurrent, and an irreverent ferociousness that is alone in its kind in contemporary rock.

The future of this band is surely going to be as unprecedented and extraordinary as its inception. Finding their innate pleasure in their own demise, and embracing their nihilism, this revamped monster looks set to follow their trajectory to new formidable heights. The end has only just begun.

Grave Pleasures will play a six-date UK tour this October.
