A new Post Hardcore/Metal band from Poole in Dorset has recently been brought to our attention, they are called “Griever”. The have been together for around eight months and have been holed up at a secret location in Dorset shaping their sound and perfecting a short set of songs ready to go out and play live. The fruits of their hard work is their 1st single “Ascension” which combines twin guitars with screamo style vocals along with clean vocals to give a 2:53 of passionate powerful post hardcore metal, for a 1st single it is a really good effort and gives them a positive way forward for the future.

The true test of the band will be when they hit the local music venues to see what the general public think, you will be able to see them at the Sound Circus in Bournemouth on Friday 4th May as part of the “Metal to the Masses” series of gigs, more details check out the facebook event:


The band have another song called “Died Before You Lived” which be available from the Facebook page very soon.
