Alone In The Grave, the impending debut 12” from Olympia, Washington-based death metal horde BONE SICKNESS is nearing release, with local operation 20 Buck Spin prepped to unleash the beast on 12” vinyl and via download on April 30th.
A putrid album guaranteed to dampen the renewing cycle of life this Spring season, Alone In The Grave has already set BONE SICKNESS apart from the pack through advance coverage of the album. The young members have tagged and bagged some of the most legit, goresoaked American death metal of our times, infiltrating their brutal old-school songs with surges of Repulsion, Autopsy, Infest and more punk/grind-influenced acts than the legions of clones stripping their riffs from Gothenburg’s templates. Alone In The Grave aborts seven tracks in twenty minutes, the album housed in ghastly, unbelievably-detailed cover art executed by Chips & Beer Mag’s in-house illustrator Hand Of Beaver.
Today, Pitchfork reaches into the tombs, pulling forth the rot of Alone In The Grave’s opener “Submit To Decay” — bludgeon thyself RIGHT HERE.
BONE SICKNESS will storm Seattle supporting Absu on April 25th, and are currently scheming on Summer tour plans.
BONE SICKNESS Live:
4/25/2013 Highline – Seattle, WA w/ Absu

“…largely the Olympia, WA quartet avoid the customs charges on importing the Stockholm sound wholesale in favor of homespun frights… whatever you were doing before pressing play seems a distant memory, just lost, swallowed in Bone Sickness’s impenetrable riff-fog. 8/10” – Decibel
“…a pure bred DM record, rather the concision and brevity of grindcore has influenced Bone Sickness’ decision to reel in the running time and shoehorn in as much savagery as humanly possible.” – Cvlt Nation
“You cannot stop to rest for even for just a few quick breaths; Bone Sickness will find you and kill you.” – ThrashPunx
“…I’ve been getting inundated with old-school death metal of the Swedish and American variety, and it’s all started to blend together. But one thing I haven’t been getting as much of is death metal that has heavy grindcore and punk leanings which is why Bone Sickness made an immediate impression.” – Cosmos Gaming
