FDJ Grungey alt-rock of really high calibre that dips it's toe into classic rock and a few other genres along the way. Superb musicianship and fronted by a vocalist of awesome tone and power, this screams CLASS! Favorite track: The Ice King.

about

This five track EP contains the first self produced recordings from this power trio of bombastic proportions. Drawing from a wide range of influences from the history of heavy rock, Granite Waves attempts to forge a new style from the threads of classic heavy metal, psychedelic rock, prog, grunge and stoner rock. They are in the midst of producing a second EP that will be released on CD and digital download in 2016.

about

Granite Waves Gig Harbor, Washington

Emerging from the misty forests of Washington State, a band dedicated to the riff and the groove as much as the melody and the lyric is ready to pummel the Northwest with a heavy rock sledgehammer.
Bands we dig: the Melvins, Sleep, Soundgarden, Rush, Mos Generator, Akimbo, Black Sabbath, Red Fang, Neurosis, Alice in Chains, Dio, Slayer, ZZ Top, Kyuss, Fu Manchu, the Sword, Floater...

Track Name: I'm Gonna Bury You Deeeeeep
underneath the screaming machines
where your doomed voice will drown in noise
and thundering silence
follows you into the grave
phoenix desire descends upon zombi eyes

the people chose the transformation begins
bury them deep
bury them deep
and rise again

but in the end you will be buried deep
despite all hope towards reformation
and so you will go down six feet below
this time the people choose no

the people chose the transformation begins
bury them deep
bury them deep
and rise again
Track Name: Death by Eagles
eagles scream and fly
rule with beak and claw
talons rip through fashion
by selling stars for fuel
for red white and blue

blue is the new outlaw
as eagles soar
with satellite eyes

recording patterns
for something greater
to analyze and enhance
or die by the claw
for red white and blue

blue is the new outlaw
as eagles soar
with satellite eyes

ripped away
chained to the rock
of your incarceration
every day the eagle soars back
to eat my liver for the fire theft
Track Name: The Ice King
coming down the mountain
the ice king rages on

the reality TV of the 21st century
when money becomes the reason to be
ages come and go
but to suffocate ourselves in meltdown
is essentially geno-suicide

the hordes of the earth
ravage his castle with toxic fascination

his mountain is melting away
frozen caps slough into the sea
the ice king drowns
the hunger game is on

burning all the canyons
fail to see warning in the flames of our companions

operation prism
x keystroke warriors
become the ally or betray the lie
enter no where
where once you were basking in sun
now your body is snowed in deceit

ignore the singularity
progressing incessantly

his mountain is melting away
frozen caps slough into the sea
the ice king drowns
the hunger game is on
Track Name: Semanticore
talking heads and babbling brooks
leading us nowhere

core of argument seen as verbal coals
stoked by the need to be the right one
even though right becomes wrong
when picking only one side

three sides to every coin
even more in every story told

talking heads and babbling brooks
leading us know where

the core of meaning burns brightly in our eyes
we each try to describe what it means to be something
but it becomes only a soft echo
the true deep intentions only resonate beyond the words

three sides to every coin
even more in every story told
truth and lies hold meaning in disguise
under masks of interpretation

Semanticore
hungry for more
of your hypocrisy
Track Name: Vanish Into the Ether (Doom Odyssey)
savor inverted signs
ever reaching skrying alcoves
sum of penetration
into the realm of doom

vanish into the odyssey
siphoning a new dimension

accent simulated innocence
to mask the memory
reconciling farce and reason
to call into the wild

vanish into the odyssey
siphoning a new dimension
arrive with intent to sow
all the seeds of your fruition
