Melbourne Deathcore squad Gravemind‘s EP ‘The Deathgate’ is OUT NOW and has already begun making it’s mark. Overnight, the band put their EP up for pre-order on Vinyl and overnight sold the lion’s share of 150 records and woke this morning to find that the record was sitting in the top 5 Metal releases, top 20 Rock releases and top 100 overall in iTunes and number 2 Metal release in Bandcamp. Not a bad effort at all for an absolutely independent, niche-genre within a niche-genre act. The EP can be purchased here:

Here’s what people are saying about the release!
“The Deathgate is uncompromisingly heavy, and shows Gravemind are ahead of the deathcore pack.” – Hysteria Mag
“Gravemind don’t need deathcore, deathcore needs Gravemind!” – killyourstereo
“This [The Deathgate] is heavy as fuck and brutal as a rhino on a rampage.” – Battle Helm
“This is one hard hitting record that doesn’t let up once. Each track blasts its way through with massive power and energy, backed with a solid heavy atmospheric soundscape.” – Tomatrax
“Not for a long time has there been a more lethal and lacerating journey through Hell, until The Deathgate, that is. Gravemind are incredible proof that some of the best deathcore in the World is right here in Australia.” – Insert Review Here
“Call it what you will, Gravemind have produced one heavy EP with their own lethal cocktail of death metal and hardcore with enough technicality to cause the malfunctions of robots.” – Overdrive Mag
Early July saw Melbourne Deathcore outfit Gravemind unveil that they were behind mystery website thedeathgate.com. The site countdown eventually revealed that Gravemind were behind the site.
They are heading out on their EP release tour in September, which sees them on a three date jaunt in Brisbane, Melbourne and Launceston that brings along fellow Deathcore crew Blind Oracle for the Brisbane and Melbourne shows.
Punters can look forward to seeing Gravemind on tour, having developed their sound and bone-rattling live show in shows with bands such as Architects, House Vs Hurricane, I Killed the Prom Queen, King Parrot, Hollow World, Iconoclast, A Night in Texas and Justice for the Damned.
