Grave Plague are a band from Ohio that plays an old school form of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 ep "The Infected Crypts" which will be released in March as a joint effort between Give Praise and Redefining Darkness.
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the ep along with some morbid sounding melodies and death metal growls and when t he music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and the music is rooted in both the 90's Swedish and American style of the genre while also mixing in a very raw edge.
Both of the songs sound like they could of easily been recorded and released more than 25 years ago and there is also a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar leads are utilized they also remain very true to an old school style of death metal and the music always sticks to a very dark and heavy sound.
Grave Plague plays a style of death metal that is very heavily rooted in the 90's and has nothing in common with the more modern era of the genre, the production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover horror themes.
In my opinion Grave Plague are a very great sounding old school death metal band an if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Arise the Infected". 8 out of 10.
