Graf Orlock

Graf Orlock kills. Not people, but the concept of enjoying certain movies in the same innocent way ever again. They are known as one of the best current bands in grind to record collectors and grind aficionados for a reason. Their shows are unforgettable and off-the-wall with energy and they are one of the current bestselling records at 29northrecords (as of summer 2007).

As if this band hasn't completely self-destructed after two sets of demos, a split and full-length all packed with brutality, their newest EP Destination Time Tomorrow continues to move Gorlock, as they are affectionately nicknamed, on a straight path to annihilation.

Not to be confused with metal, thrash, hardcore or grind exclusively, Southern California's Gorlock is all of the above - only on speed. Level-Plane - an independent label initially established to release the work of the retired godsend Saetia - is a proper home for Gorlock, who similarly reflects the semi-melodic, spazz-tastic passion of '90s screamo bands.

The totality of the Gorlock experience cannot be fully felt until one is able to witness the band live: Every Gorlockian in the crowd will scream out the word-for-word dialogue from flicks like The Big Lebowski or Predator until the self-implosion of Gorlock's music begins.

Memorable film audio samples shape Gorlock's songs, reinforcing the band's undeniable infatuation with corpses, killing and death. But on Destination Time Tomorrow, Gorlock synchs its own heavily distorted yet harmonizing guitars to the unforgettable background music of Jurassic Park for the record's outro, "The Dream Left Behind." It doesn't get any better than that.
