Grieving Sea created a purposely unpolished and low-fi blending of disparate genres such as Post-Punk, Noise Rock and Darkwave, with the aim of conveying a profound sense of calamity.
Similarly to the music, the vocals also seem to evoke a cry for something that we have all lost, mimicking the sad and poignant litany of the sea eroding the coast, swallowing our lives under its waves.
The project marks the first musical collaboration between Void (Feed Them Death, Pseudodoxia) and Giorgio Barroccu (Derhead), both co-owners of Brucia Records, and it represents a further step in the label’s new direction of pursuing uncanny, unsettling and unusual sounds away from the boundaries of extreme metal.
The album also features a few special collaborations: Sarah Townley from american Heavy Psych / Drone Ambient band The Sun and The Mirror and the danish avantgarde musician Trine Paaschburg (Mouth Wound).
