“Red Horse” is the title track from Early Graves’ critically heralded new album released in October via No Sleep Records. Decibel magazine recently ranked the album #21 Top Album of the Year and critics continue to rave about the release calling it “a brutal, crusty hardcore record that tips its hat to everything from grind to black metal to Slayer” (Brooklynvegan.com).

“It’s a ferocious, life-affirming offering, one of those albums that doesn’t need “thrash,” “core,” “punk and,” or “death” affixed to it….these guys just make vital, amped-up Heavy Metal.” – Pitchfork.com
“This is the kind of metal band that ignores multi-prefix genre tags, rips a terse guitar solo that deconstructs itself like “Paranoid Android” on an all-night bender, and then finds its steel-toed boot in someone’s face.” – NPR.org
“At heart Early Graves still sound like a D-beat-starved His Hero Is Gone sword-fighting with math rock, ultimately failing the math part before burning the whole fucking mess to the ground.” – Alternative Press (4/5 Stars)
“Early Graves has outlasted tragedy, outlived its name, and produced one of the most epic clusterfucks of raw-throated metal and corrosive hardcore laid to tape in many a moon.” – AVClub.com
“Red Horse is itself a whirlwind of a record, an 8-track / 38-minute grind n’ roll bulldozer that’ll leave you flattened mere minutes in. It’s everything you want it to be, at once dirty, fast, raw and angry without ever succumbing to cliche.” – MetalSucks.net
“a ferocious, angry, incredibly powerful and unexpectedly positive album that’s as devastating as it is life-affirming.” – About.com
