Bury Me in the Swamp
'This Raleigh quintet's sweaty, whiskey-soaked sound traces it's roots back to Neil Young's spiky, distortion-drenched amble and the Drive-by Truckers' blend of Southern verve with country-punk swagger. It's rugged drinking music with a knack for beer-lifting anthems like 'Oh My God,' off their 2005 six-song EP, Bury Me in the Swamp. The twin-guitar attack is meaty, and frontman Adam Lane's aching Southern twang is well suited for such crunchy rockers.' -Chris Parker, The Independent Weekly, July 4th, 2007 '...Brothers Grim rides the border of alt. Country, delivering sincere, rural-rendered sud songs behind a two-guitar caterwaul... Like their kindred spirits in The Drive-By Truckers, Brothers Grim both understands and harnesses the spirit of it's native South... it's defiant soul.' -Grayson Currin, The Independent Weekly 'With a loud two-guitar attack and plenty of hard-drinking originals from band leader Adam Lane, Brothers Grim is putting the volume and booze back into twang-rock. And when they fold in a few lines from a certain Steve Goodman-penned, David Allan Coe-owned tune, you just may think you've heard the perfect alternative-country song.' -Rick Cornell, The Independent Weekly 'Brothers Grim's debut is a marvelous document of an emerging 'band on the verge' in the hotbed triangle area of North Carolina. Both the songs on this e.p. and in their live shows show plenty of grit, guts and soaring guitars along with mature songwriting and arranging. A young Jason and the Scorchers come to mind at some times and the more rocking tunes of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band the next moment. Catch 'em live and by all means, buy 'Bury Me in the Swamp'. -Jeff Hart, singer-songwriter and guitarist for Jeff Hart & the Ruins, Brown Mountain Lights, The Hanks, and Purefoy.
