Dig Two Graves Comes Alive with Brand New EP, Deathwish

Deathwish EP

New Jersey’s Dig Two Graves’ Six-Track EP, Deathwish

Ladies and gentlemen, let’s get ready to mosh. 

Dig Two Graves, a progressive metalcore quartet from central New Jersey (Somerville), today has released its debut six-track EP entitled Deathwish

It’s been a while since I’ve heard the type of kickass, octane-driving rock music that Dig Two Graves delivers on Deathwish

Songs like So Below and Iron Lungs and Paper Hearts make me want to thrash about and bang my head in the middle of a mosh pit, just like I did back in my younger days. 

But Dig Two Graves is more than just loud music. You can hear the band’s musical prowess in tracks such as Wick, as drummer Kenny Meeks relentlessly, yet melodically, beats the hell out of the double bass, and lead singer Mike Reisser goes from raging the lyrics to flat out beautifully belting out the tune’s words. 

Compared to bands such as Veil of Maya, Between the Buried and Me, Make Them Suffer, Born of Osiris, We Came as Romans and Monuments, the song Track 2 echos the rhythmically heart-pounding traits of a group that has eclectically blended progressive metal, djent (a subgenre of progressive metal, named for an onomatopoeia for the distinctive high-gain, distorted, palm-muted, low-pitch guitar sound), and atmospheric dream pop since 2017, that has made them a force to be reckoned with on the rock scene.


Dig Two Graves musicians include:
Mike Reisser: Vocals
Josh Brewer: Guitar
Jesse Agins: Bass
Kenny Meeks: Drums
