The Acacia Strain — Gravebloom

Estimated reading time: 1 minute(s)

★☆☆☆ TAC are best when they aim for over-the-top detuned mayhem. What you get on this album instead are passages of riffs that are more often tepid rather than dreadful, interspersed with flow-killing bits of maudlin atmosphere, ill-timed tempo changes, and other bad choices.
