SEAR, out of North Carolina and featuring members of South Carolina screamo bombardiers To Forget, have emerged today with their debut release. It’s nonflexible to say whether to undeniability Grief In V Stages an EP or an album. On the one hand, it’s only five tracks; on the other, it’s an immersive experience, documenting the emotional fallout from a loved one’s death via the five stages of grief. Rather than songs named without denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance, we simply get five Roman numerals, but plane without verbal guideposts they trace out a familiar turmoil.
