Grief are purveyors of sludgy doom metal, and this live set finds them doing what they do best. Blending the plodding riffs of Black Sabbath with the crushing intensity and screaming vocals of contemporary death metal, Grief are heavy enough for hardcore fans but make themselves unique by slowing it all down to a narcoleptic bad trip. Songs like "Polluted" and "I Hate the Human Race" underscore the band's bleak, nihilistic stance, while their crushing, lumbering attack gives fans plenty of downbeat on which to bang their heads.
