Dig Two Graves - Deathwish (Official Audio)

Dig Two Graves is a progressive metal band that recently caught my attention with their latest release 'Deathwish,' which arrived on May 6, 2019. It is truly impressive to witness such remarkable musical and technical standards from an emerging band, especially considering that this is only their second official release. Let's delve deeper into their potential and the offerings on this album.

'Deathwish' blends various genres, including djent, progressive metal, and math rock, with additional influences from death metal. As I listened to the full album multiple times before penning this article, I couldn't help but appreciate Dig Two Graves' modern ideas, proficient songwriting, and exceptional musicianship. The album is brimming with intriguing ideas, captivating riffs, and dynamic compositions that are sure to pique the interest of fellow musicians. The overall atmosphere is dark, tense, and mysterious, setting them apart from their peers. With numerous style, tempo, and mood changes throughout the compositions, as expected from any progressive band, the songs predominantly revolve around guitar-driven sections, while the vocal lines exhibit a refreshing freedom, reminiscent of bands like Periphery.

As we are all aware, this music style has witnessed a surge in popularity and trendiness in recent times. I hold immense respect and admiration for those who are genuinely excited about it. In my opinion, Dig Two Graves exhibits commendable standards in their execution. Without a doubt, crafting compositions of this caliber requires a certain level of skill. Hence, they truly deserve positive feedback for their work.

Overall, there is nothing negative to highlight about the 'Deathwish' album. However, I would like to address a few areas where Dig Two Graves could focus on improving in the future. Earlier, I discussed the trendiness of this music style to emphasize the importance of uniqueness and making a distinctive mark as an artist. Dedicated readers of Metalhead Community will recall my penchant for innovative ideas in music, as well as other forms of art. While 'Deathwish' exhibits commendable standards across the board, it is premature to ascertain whether Dig Two Graves will make a lasting impact over time. Despite the abundance of different ideas within the songs, I found them somewhat lacking in musical creativity. Despite thoroughly enjoying the music, I struggled to recall a single melody from the album. It is worth noting that the band members are young, intelligent, and talented musicians. With the guidance and mentorship of an experienced music professional, they can effectively analyze their strengths and weaknesses, gaining a more precise understanding of the band's musical direction in due course.

Taking everything into account, I am genuinely impressed by Dig Two Graves' capabilities showcased on this album. I firmly believe they have much more to offer, and this is just the beginning of their musical journey.
