I Shall Not Survive Another Winter


Pact Rejection
It's Too Late For Me, It's Too Late For You
Hara-Kiri Superstars
Never Was
I Shall Not Survive Another Winter
No Longer Communicable


GRIDFAILURE’s post-apocalyptic style of horror merges influences of jazz, world music, hardcore, and dark ambient music into a confrontational contagion on I Shall Not Survive Another Winter. To be released on the Fall Equinox, each song on the record grows longer than the one before, creator David Brenner delivering tension and paranoia through effects-soaked guitars, bass, vocals, keyboards, synth, harmonica, field recordings, drums and percussion, and more, also handling the recording and artwork. Guest henchpersons include Richard Muller (Vise Massacre, The Third Kind, Future Hunter), BJ Allen (Full Scale Riot), Benjamin Levitt (Megalophobe), Robert Levitt, Christian Molenaar (Those Darn Gnomes), and Mark Steuer (Those Darn Gnomes).

Track Name: Sew Nothing, Reap Nothingness
“Sew Nothing, Reap Nothingness”
Sewing nothing, reaping nothingness
Barely navigating through this fucking mess
A permanent vortex; a veil of contempt
Barely enshrouding endless resentment
Justification for permanent immersion
In this blind rage that is my inertia
The sadness returns once you burn off the hate
Until you’re proven finite, loathing, abominate
