Near Grey cover art

Near Grey is an Instrumental Sludge/Doom/Post-Metal band from Montreal, Canada

The members are:

Marc-Olivier Germain – Drums
Michel Rochefort – Guitar
Kevin Bartczak – Guitar / synth
Nicolas Tremblay - Bass

I have to thank band member Marc-Olivier for sending me an email for the band's superb Debut S/T EP.

If your a fan of Pelican and Russian Circles then your going to love this. As Near Grey play the same style of awesome Sludge/Post-Metal riffs that I am a big fan of. Near Grey debut EP is superb. No question. If you want haunting and emotional packed riffs then you have came to the right band. Near Grey debut EP is a 3 song and 34 minute work of genius.

The brilliant 18 minute track - . Néant - is worth it for the free download alone. It has too many jaw-dropping moments to mention. The way they blend Sludge, Doom, Post-Rock and Post-Metal is a joy to behold. How I missed these guys for so long I don't know as this was originally released back in Sept 2012. But better late than never.

The other two tracks Vast and Twin Yellow Suns prove that Near Grey have a very bright future indeed. As they are one of the best Instrumental Post-Metal Bands I have heard in a long time. They add some creepy ambient noises to their sound which gives them an unflinching edge as well.

The EP is brilliantly produced. It showcases Near Grey's talents to perfection. Look just headover to BandCamp and download this now. You won't regret it.

Near Grey have released an incredible debut EP and this is definitely one band I will be keeping an eye out for. If you want a physical release then the guys are selling a Limited Edition Red Tape as well on their BandCamp Page.

Just headover their now and get downloading.

Excellent and Highly Recommended.
