This Friday (31st), Indiana hardcore/metal outfit Bruise will release their debut album Grief Ritual via Unbeaten Records. The band teamed up with Metal Injection to stream the record ahead of its release date.

We asked vocalist Trae Roberts what the LP’s lyrical theme is, he stated:

“I wrote Grief Ritual during a time where I was extremely angry and depressed. I was so overwhelmed with life, that’s about all I could write about. Angry at “god”. Angry at myself. Angry at the world.”

Stream the album below, and order it here.
