Grave Pleasures are in for a Futureshock with new song

Posted by on November 10, 2015

We were big fans of Finland’s Beastmilk when their debut album was released a few years back. The bad news is that was their only album, as they broke up shortly afterwards. The  good news is that singer Kvohst and bassist Valterri Arino continued on as Grave Pleasures, with help from guitarist Linnea Olsson, formerly […]

Grave Pleasures album coming in September

Posted by on June 22, 2015

The debut Beastmilk album, 2013’s Climax, was one of those non-metal albums that was immediately accepted by metal fans. While there was certainly some heaviness to the band, and singer Mat McNerney logged time in Finnish folk metal band Hexvessel, the band’s sound was more rooted in dark post-punk along the lines of old Killing Joke […]

Beastmilk changes band member, name

Posted by on March 3, 2015

We were big fans of Beastmilk’s 2013 album, Climax. While it was a little more post-punk than metal, the  band boasted Mat “Kvohst” who’s played in death metal bands like Hexvessel and Code. At any rate, Beastmilk is a thing of the past, as they’ve changed their name to Grave Pleasures and recruited a new guitarist, […]

Beastmilk share unreleased track

Posted by on October 8, 2014

One of our favorite albums of last year was Beastmilk’s debut full-length, Climax. While it fits more into the loud post-punk landscape than it does metal, it was loud, aggressive, and split the difference between Christian Death and Joy Division. Yet the stellar production from Converge’s Kurt Ballou and frontman Kvohst’s black metal past was […]

Beastmilk’s ‘The Wind Blows Through Their Skulls’ is creepy propoganda

Posted by on June 13, 2014

[vimeo]http://vimeo.com/98064080[/vimeo] We really enjoyed Beastmilk’s debut album, Climax, last year. The Finnish band’s debut isn’t really a metal record, per se, and would appeal more to fans of Christian Death and Bauhaus than anything else. However, their brand of “death rock” struck a chord with us, and it’s fast, dark and just heavy enough for […]

Start your day off with some Beastmilk

Posted by on November 14, 2013

[youtube]http://youtu.be/hpoe4Ih1FT0[/youtube] Finnish export Beastmilk might have a ridiculous name, but they’ve also got an interesting lineage. Vocalist Kvohst has played in black metal bands Code and Dodheimsgard, as well as folk band Hexvessel. Their four song EP perked up Converge’s ears, and the band’s Kurt Ballou recorded the band’s debut full length, Climax. A lyric video […]
