Graviators, The: Evil Deeds
The Graviators Evil Deeds Review Review

Graviators, The: Evil Deeds

Heavy/Stoner Rock
3.5/5.0

"It's deja vu all over again." The Graviators warp us back in time to the Seventies with their heavy, fuzz busting, stoner rock on their second release Evil Deeds.

The Graviators: sufficiently photoshopped.

As much as stoner or doom rock can sound fresh, this Swedish band is quite adept at their craft. The songs rumble with a heavy groove, but still keep a subtle rock undercurrent. Some songs can sound suspiciously lively in parts like with the title track, The Infidel, or the short and upbeat Morning Star. Then when you think its all heavy rock riffs and psychedelic guitar solos, The Graviators pitch Presence, a song that moves as much on the vocal arrangements as space rock synthesizers that wafts its way into the tune. It's the best cut here.

For modern heavy stoner rock, The Graviators are definitely on target. If this genre is your thing, don't overlook Evil Deeds.

In Short

Evil Deeds by The Graviators is a solid example of modern heavy and stoner rock. Definitely a pick for fans of the genre.
