Cursed Earth Cycles of Grief

After selling out both Cycles of Grief 10"s, Cursed Earth will release these two EPs on one LP on October 20 via UNFD. Entitled Cycles of Grief: The Complete Collection, the release combines Cycles of Grief Volume I: Growth and Cycles of Grief Volume II: Decay on 12″ and CD formats.

Cycles Of Grief Volume I: Growth is an unflinching and graphic depiction of trauma that breaches the boundaries of generation, country, class or circumstance. Cycles Of Grief Volume II is a continuation of where it began on Cycles of Grief Volume I. A two part concept, the Cycles of Grief collection is an unflinching and graphic depiction of trauma that breaches the boundaries of generation, country, class or circumstance.The EP covers themes of isolation and brutality from the point of view of characters caught up in and torn apart by their environment and the actions of those responsible for shaping their lives.

“The story in Cycles of Grief documents the collision of nature and nurture” says guitarist Kieran Molloy. “It’s an unprejudiced look into the intergenerational nature of coldness, addiction and violence.”

Cursed Earth, comprising vocalist Jazmine Luders, guitarists Kieran Molloy and Paul Cottrell, bassist Robert Owens and drummer Sam Forward, formed in Perth in 2013. Through EP Vae Mortis and a split with Burning Season (collected on Enslaved By The Insignificant, released worldwide by Death’s Grip / Holy Roar) they established themselves as unflinching documenters of the darkest corners of human nature. And now, with the two-act Cycles Of Grief, they are making their most powerful statement yet.

“This isn’t a commentary on society” continues Molloy. “Society is nothing but smoke from the fire, the result of the flawed nature of the individuals who comprise it. We are biologically hardwired to carry our trauma with us and to share it with everyone who will open themselves to it. It’s our greatest weakness and most destructive power. The record is as much a criticism of ourselves as it is the characters we write through.”
