First of all, shout out to Grieved’s singer Marcus Lundqvist for his amazing tattoos. Quite unique!
Anyways, Grieved has been one of my favourite bands since I discovered them in October. They were formed in 2010 and released their first E.P, Ageing, in March, 2011.They are currently based in Stockholm and released their first full-length album in June, 2012, called Samaritans. Their sound can be described as high-tempo, dark hardcore mixed with metal. Their music is powerful, hard and very up-tempo.
Samaritans is the second song of the Samaritans album. It’s pretty much a typical Grieved song. It starts out slowly and builds up, bit for bit. In a blog Max Grundström described the singer, Marcus Lundqvist, as “the little man with the huge voice”, not sure how tall Marcus Lundqvist is but his voice fits like a glove with Grieved’s sound - powerful, huge and overwhelming. At the halfway point of the song the tempo goes up yet another notch. The song ends with a melodic piece which really turns down the tempo and ends the song nicely. It’s dark, powerful, deep, on the edge on being a bit depressive, fast and well… it’s Grieved! Check out their album review here -> Grieved - Samaritans (Album Review)
