“Grace Chapel” EP
By Leslie Snyder
Doom hovers over Denver, Pennsylvania from an unsigned alternative/garage rock solo project called Cult Choir. Cult Choir is the creation of a musician named Shane Graybill. Cult Choir sings about the “down side” of life sounding similar to Nirvana and The Velvet Underground with “moaning” vocals and an “eerie” acoustic sound that will surely make one’s skin crawl. Cult Choir released their latest EP “Grace Chapel” on May 20, 2013 featuring six ominous tracks.
The gloomy journey begins with the first track “So tired.” This track features “moaning” vocals and dreary acoustic melodies. This track is a lonely tale about a troubled man who is tired of the stress of daily life. Meanwhile, the loneliness continues in the second track “Grace Chapel.” This track features sorrowful vocals and “weeping” acoustic melodies that sound like a person sobbing uncontrollably. This track is a heart wrenching tale about a troubled man being forgiven no matter how many mistakes he makes in his life.
Finally, the gloomy journey ends with sadness in the fifth track “Giving In.” This track features “groaning” vocals and “brooding” acoustic melodies. This track is a heartbreaking tale about a troubled man who is feeling hopeless. The troubled man feels like a “black cloud” is constantly hovering over him. The troubled man feels like an absolute failure and nothing will ever change for him.
Cult Choir is a great unsigned alternative/garage rock solo project who sings songs about heartache and loneliness with sorrowful vocals and ominous acoustic melodies. The “Grace Chapel” EP brings back the dark intensity of the early alternative music scene. This will make fans of the “dark era” of alternative rock very happy.
