The Brave - Gravedigger (New release coming summer of 2022)

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

We wanted to let you all know that we have been busy putting the finishing touches on our new album, Gravedigger, for a Summer 2022 release. This is the follow-up to Evie's Little Garden, but we can assure you that it is anything but a carbon copy - Gravedigger is chock full of big riffs, tribal drums, scorching solos, thunderous bass riffage and much more of what we are known for - killer songs that will have you singing along in no time (air guitar is allowed as well!). It's a 12 song album that is loaded with a simple rule - all killer and no filler!

We are hoping to release the title track, Gravedigger in mid/late spring. We just wanted to give you all a heads up. We want to also thank you all for helping to make Evie's Little Garden one of the standout albums of 2021 - we made the top of most everybody's lists (Heaven's Metal, Angelic Warlord, The Metal Onslaught, Iridium Reviews, Torrential Riffs and more!) and the competition was stiff!

Pre-Orders will be available soon, and FYI, we will only be doing a CD and digital release, as vinyl is taking way too long to process(those of you who are still waiting on Vinyl would already know this!). We look forward to sharing this album with you!

Until the Gravedigger arrives, thanks for listening and supporting us!

All the Best,

Stayce, Malcolm & John
The Brave

"Evie's Little Garden," while a long way off from the glory days of their classic debut album, was still a better than expected comeback and I'm very interested to see how they follow it up.

This is out today, for the handful who may care. I downloaded it but haven't given it a listen yet.

I downloaded my copy while awaiting the arrival of the CD; listening now.

While it's been a good while since I listened to their 2021 release Evie's Little Garden, this one seems to be rocking a bit harder (3 songs in anyway) .

Credit must be given where it's due, and I do like the effort put into this one. To be frank, I thought the first 5 songs were pretty shit. All the while I was listening, wondering what became of these guys. The most frustrating song of those first few is 'Eternal.' I wrote in my little ratings thing that it almost sounds to me like these guys are trying to sound bad because, otherwise, this is a pretty good song. But it's just done poorly. 

Anyway, I want to be fair to these guys and I have to say, that from song 6 the mood in the room seems to lift and they start to give it a fair crack. They drop the mopey post-grunge blandom and have a crack at some decent melodic type of rock. Spoiler alert - I don't actually think there's a keeper track on the album, but holy shit they get close. 

'Temples,' 'Alive,' 'Heaven Knows' and 'Someone's watching over me' are all, four in a row, good, strong songs. And then 'Love Is The Only Place' hits and I was taken aback. Unfortunately, they're not the band they used to be and I am 100% convinced they couldn't hit the heights of the debut even if they did everything possible to try... but goodness do they get close with this track. A bit of polish and finesse and this one wouldn't be a bad stab at what they did so well on their debut. 

Sadly, the album's worst song follows in 'The Undertaker' - what a piece of shit, lol. Really grates me because this is the discussion point I've had with christians that aggravates me the most, and it's in a song, so naturally I hate it. And then 'Afterlife' isn't amazing, but pretty decent. Before the album finishes on a high, with one of the best songs on the album with a nice hook - 'Strange New World.'

So overall, like I say, credit where it's due. After the first few songs I was close to closing up shop and calling this a pass, but thankfully, they took me on a ride and it was pretty cool. They're a dim shadow of the band they used to be, to be totally fair, but I like that they showed a bit of fight with this album.

Better than expected.

    • My CD arrived. Gotta say it is one of the cheapest, shittiest packaging of a cd I have seen. It is just a double panel with a disk (no tray). No booklet, no lyrics, very little info. printed. Terrible artwork (as you can see above). Glad I only paid $17 as it isn't worth more than that presentation wise. Musically I have only listened once so far so will reserve judgement until then. Note - Jack Jones only played on one track, the lead single. But he is touring with the band.

    • Brilliant tune... reminds me of prime MSG, to be honest. Maybe a slight 'Anytime' vibe? But a magnificent song.  But the song I've had in my head all week is '100 thousand years.' Man I love that one. I rated this album fairly earlier in the year, but with a bit of a jumbled year of listening I haven't concentrated too much on albums this year. Listening to everything now, and I have to say that this album stood out as one I maybe did not give it's due credit. Those two songs are excellent, and I also like 'Get Away' and 'Crash & Burn' of the rest. Some nice gear on here. 
    • Exactly. Same goes for Sunstorm.
    • They're solid and consistent... just missing a bit of something to make them stand out for me, personally. The album is solid, like their other stuff. 
    • ADV wrote most of the debut. but that was before he burned himself out writing another 4000 songs of course the main problem is it isn't Revolution Saints. If you still want to showcase DC pick some more band members and call it something else but don't pretend its Rev Saints anymore. 
    • I don't have as much disdain for Del Vecchio as some do, but I can't help but feel like this sounds very... generic in an ADV kind of way? It's not that it's a bad song by any means, it's just that I've only listened to it once, but it feels like I've heard it about 300 times because it sounds like so many other songs Del Vecchio has produced. Secondly, since they've outright admitted that Revolution Saints was meant as a vehicle to showcase Castronovo, without Jack Blades and Doug Aldrich, I'm a little puzzled as to why they didn't just make a Deen Castronovo solo record instead. Surely at this point, anyone familiar with Frontiers, melodic rock music and especially Revolution Saints knows who he is.
