Gravemind are not a band who do things by the book. They are known for their off-kilter rollouts, their insanely detailed and perfectly-crafted video clips and their ability to stand out in a niche-within-niche genre – deathcore. Having turned heads in media with their previous release, The Deathgate, Gravemind are today returning to the fray with a new track and filmclip, “Lifelike”. The single will be available on all DSPs this Friday.
Dylan Gillies-Parsons, vocalist for Gravemind, said that “Lifelike is about being alive, but not really being there at all. It’s about being born against your will, and the reality that some day soon, we all die. We wanted to drop the metaphors and narrative for this release, and really be honest with the listener. It was our intention to write a song that is intrinsically Gravemind, but also very unique from our previous releases. It has been the hardest song to write lyrically, and the whole creation process this time around has been exceptionally draining, but for good cause. This song is about us, all of us, because no one can escape from this.”

We are the flock ignorance has maimed. I’ll face these trials, I’ll tread the path seldom thought of. I’ll face this life of pain, maybe then we can find a better way.
