Graveyard Shifters are a band from Finland that plays a mixture of crust punk and rock'n'roll and this is a review of their 2014 ep "Brainwashed By Moonshine" which will be released in October by Eternal Sound Records.
A very hard rock orientated sound starts off the ep before going more into a fast and aggressive punk direction while also adding in aggressive crust vocals and screams along with some melodic 80's metal/punk guitar solos and leads as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
There is a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts present throughout the recording along with a decent amount of back up gang shouts, on some of the tracks you can hear a heavy AC/DC influence being mixed in with the bands aggressive crust punk approach as well as some screams that bring in elements of hardcore and on the last rack acoustic guitars are brought into the song briefly before returning back to a heavier musical direction.
Graveyard Shifters take a very heavy and aggressive form of crustcore and brings in elements of 70's rock and deathpunk to create some music that is very heavy while also always having an old school vibe to it, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion Graveyard Shifters are a very great sounding crust punk'n'roll band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Good Day To Die hard" and "Play the Victim". 8/5 out of 10.
