Granted Earth

In the tradition of the vocal nodule-inducing grunts of Fucked Up’s Pink Eye, drummer/singer JonU gale lets out relentless yelps. But, also like Fucked Up, Granted Earth adds some sweetness to the thunder with a tender Middle Eastern-flavored interlude.

The band has only recently transitioned from being an all-instrumental operation. Jon says he was inspired to add vocals after his wife, Becky, came to him with some new guitar riffs.

On “Rebirth,” they descend deeper into its caverns with rapid polyrhythms and Black Sabbath-inspired riffage. The tune bleeds into another new one, “A Day in Eternity,” which calls for Jon on vocals that might rip paint off the walls if there was any.
