    Gravez will compel you, forcing you to look at your own mortality, and leave you feeling like you just saw a ghost.

    Like Clinic or Mind Spiders, Hooded Fang perforates their darkest parts with music that laughs at itself.

    Gravez is scrappy, fun but unoriginal--free in spirit but limited in execution. [Jul 2013, p.105]

    It’s a half-hour packed with ideas and wonky ambition.

    The band's mastery of various styles, moods, and sounds here is impressive, and while it bodes well for future albums, it also means that Hooded Fang have arrived as one of the most exciting indie rock/pop bands around in 2013.

    It may be easy to enjoy at the time, but this third full-length leaves no lasting impression.

    For those under the impression Hooded Fang subscribe to a right-note-right-time, throwaway pop formula, Gravez offers something meatier to chew on.

    Hooded Fang reference stalwart genres of old Americana without ever falling into parody--Gravez feels nostalgic but never dated.

    Gravez is a unified listen whose influences serve Hooded Fang’s greatest strength: infectious hooks.
