Morbid Ascent's cover artwork, interior artwork, and layout were done once again by Costin Chioreanu (www.twilight13media.com), who previously worked on GRAVE's past three albums, as well as artwork for numerous other artists (DARKTHRONE, DESTROYER 666, ULVER, etc.). This EP marks the follow-up to 2012's Endless Procession Of Souls, which was named one of the best metal albums of the year by Decibel Magazine, Pitchfork.com, Stereogum.com, among countless others.
Read on for a few reviews of the critically acclaimed Morbid Ascent:
"It's quite remarkable that GRAVE have been releasing music for twenty some odd years and still manage to keep things so visceral, brutal and, pardon the pun, grave." -- METAL SUCKS.net
"...'Morbid Ascent' is a gore-ridden slab of pure death metal that will rip your skull open and spill your gray matter all over the floor." -- METAL INJECTION.net
"GRAVE may as well be eternal at this point. 29 years into a career playing Swedish fucking death metal, they're either undead or just unkillable, showing no signs of diminishing in terms of power or perseverance." -- STEREOGUM.com
10.5 -- Oostenede (BE) -- Zombie Fest II
