"All Beauty Destroyed"
Out Of Line
Fans of Grave's previous albums won't be disappointed as All Beauty Destroyed continues in the dance floor tradition set by A Violent Emotion, Close To Human and Blood Spills Not Far From The Wound (recorded as Necessary Response), though with this new album, things take a decidedly darker and more sinister turn. "The Devil's In The Details", the first single self-released by Graves in a special hand-packaged CD and as a downloadable track in the Rock Band Network showcased the evolved sound that Graves expounds on with the new release. The second single, "Inhuman", with its synthesized chant of No hope, No pain, No loss, No gain, is bound to keep DJs satisfied with its pulsing rhythm and shout-along vocals. "Under Your Skin", arguably the most unique track on the album, was recorded using no instruments other than Grave's multi layered voice. The title track features piano accompaniment from Panzer AG's Lauren Krothe and is the closest thing to a ballad as one can expect from Grave's twisted mind.
Aesthetic Perfection's live incarnation, which includes drummer Tim Van Horn, recently wrapped up its first headline tour of the USA (with support from Germany's Faderhead) and included a blistering sold-out performance at Los Angeles' legendary club Das Bunker.
All Beauty Destroyed promises to be the darkest and most dynamic piece of work Graves has created. As the LA Indy Media Blog notes, "Aesthetic Perfection is more than just rain in the desert, more than just food to a starving man: it is like having a friend jump into the fray as I am getting my butt kicked by 12 or 13 faceless stinking zombies."
All Beauty Destroyed will be released in a single CD and 2CD edition in Europe.
