Griever is a four piece band from Escondido, California who formed in 2011.  Griever feature former members of Lewd Acts, so by going on that alone you know you're in for something truly special.  Griever play a killer style of music that incorporates elements of post hardcore, sludge, noise rock, and stoner rock within their sound.  Griever's sound is drony, sometimes sludgy, sometimes melodic, and at times really difficult to describe.  The best comparison I can come up with is that Griever mix up the melodic power/stoner metal sounds of Torche with the sludgy post metal stylings of bands like Sweet Cobra.  Since their inception in 2011, Griever have two releases under their belts that include a four song 10" titled Inferior, which was released back in 2011 and a 3-way split LP with VYGR and At Our Heels released in January of 2013.  Our Love Is Different is the band's latest full-length LP, which was released via Vitriol records on February 24th, 2015.  On their latest full-length, Griever offer up nine new songs of brilliantly executed post hardcore, sludge, noise rock, and stoner rock.  Overall, Griever have absolutely nailed it on their latest LP and have offered up an amazing album that's an absolute must listen for fans of Torche, Ages, and Sweet Cobra.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
