Graven Image is an odd little band. One on hand they utilize some rather noisy percussion which suggests an Electro background. On the other, their melodies and vocal work are rather somber with suggests a Gothic origin. Ironically, this Ohio quartet make these rather dissimilar musical elements work by slowing the cadence of caustic drums to a crawl and mixing the vocals and melody forward to avoid drowning them out. As a result, the band reminds me a great deal of Gridlock, without the erratic chaos and snarling vocals. Each musical element is rigorously planned and executed on "Black Lung Cathedral". Graven Image do not callously misplace a single note in their personal Darkwave masterpiece.

Graven Image is: Dann Lucian Kauff, Lorin Richards, Mark Thomas & Allen Dane Singleton
