Grumpy and full of existential humdingers, heavy riffers Grave Lines made these hard-edged doom tunes to explore the deep web of the human psyche. A band that loves to cross the bridge between dissonance and melody, Fed Into the Nihilist Engine is one of those metal albums constantly usurping its dynamics. Agh. Yes.

7/10 Doomster Customer review, 23rd May 2018
The second album from London and Brighton based doom merchants Grave Lines is as miserable as the album title suggests. Released on New Heavy Sounds (who have brought you albums from the likes of Limb, Black Moth, and Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard), Fed Into the Nihilist Engine brings together the sounds of the members' other bands - bands like Dead Existence, Sea Bastard and the Death Letter - and mashes them into a toxic concoction. That means tortured, riffy doom with an underlying melancholy, with surprising acoustic passages allowing singer Jake Harding to stop screaming for a moment to channel his inner Mark Lanegan for some troubadour crooning.
Overall a really promising album from an up-and-coming band.
