Grenades are a band from Seattle, Washington that plays a mixture of metal, post rock and hardcore and this is a review of their 2013 album "Heaven Is Empty" which was released by Red Cobra Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that combine post rock, metal and hardcore together to create a sound of their own, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding post rock guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are all mostly aggressive sounding hardcore vocals with some clean singing and post rock with a brief use of spoken word samples, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Grenades are a very great sounding hybrid of metal, hardcore and post rock and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Emerald" "Misery Whip" "All Hail The Snake" and "Collecting Your Bones". RECOMMENDED BUY.
