The Graviators
(Transsubstans Records - 2010)

The Swedish outfit The Graviators toy around with different sounds on their self-titled debut. You can compare them with the German act Beehoover - at least partly - who releases their album not too long ago. You'll get an idea about their sounds when we look at different songs. Keep 'Em Comin, Juggernaut and Mountain Man are doomy ones while Mountain Man also offers some psychedelic sounds - it's one of the highlights. Storm Of Creation is noisy and blaring. A faster tune is She's A Witch which is crowned by an expressive refrain. At Back To The Sabbath they offer acoustic guitars and a well-crafted melody line you get on top. A bit old-fashioned is Shapes Of Babylon which brings back memories of the hippie era - if you are old enough to remember that days. The guitar-driven Saturnus is quite short with less then 3 minutes. This one they should have expand.
My resume, the self-titled debut of the Swedish shows potential, but is a half-baked release. Anyway, a decent release which gets an interesting edge due to the occult elements. Check it out!
