CD Review: The New Album From Grandfather Comes "In Human Form"

From Brooklyn, NY comes the dark atmospheric rock of Grandfather with their soon to be released album “In Human Form.” The album was produced by Alex Newport (Mars Volta, Melvins) and will be self-released on August 13.
The eleven-song album carries a very heavy rock vibe heard on the opening song “Spun” as Grandfather combines aspects of nineties grunge rockers Alice In Chains with the dark progressive metal of the band Tool. An amazing guitar solo closes the six-plus minute song “Organ Thief,” before the energy gets pumping on the album’s first single, “Metamorphosis.” The album simmers with spurts of energy, as in the title song, “In Human Form” and the follow-up “Wishes.” The band experiments with a mellower, atmospheric feel on “Rearrange,” before closing the album with the aggressive attack of “Sorry” and the slow, epic build-up of “Exit Wounds.”
Grandfather only have one show scheduled at the moment in New York City, but look for more dates to be announced once the album is released in August. For more information on this independent metal band, please visit
