Greber is a harsh grind/hardcore act, coming at ya’ from the east coast of Canada. They have recently released a new album “Fright Without”, which is their fourth full-length. They now have a video for the track “Nosebleed”, an honest look at reality, which will throw listeners directly into the fray that is their low-end dominant, noise-encrusted, hardcore grind. They explain in their own words:
“This one is a bit all over the place. Maybe TOO all over the place perhaps. We dig it nonetheless. Topically….and orally….this one is just a reckoning with the fact that we are all closer to death than we can ever imagine. Either that or further than we can imagine. The nug of bullshit that I’m getting at is that few people are ever aware of the fact that they are doing something for the last time. The last time is just the last time and then whatever it is you were doing, ends. Life. Your car. Your hair. Your friends. Just love the shit out of as much as you can throughout the duration of the current nightmare you’re experiencing. There I go pontificating again.”
The video for “Nosebleed” can be seen and heard via its premiere on EverythingIsNoise HERE.
For the duo of Steve Vargas (drums/vocals) (The Great Sabatini) and Marc Bourgon (bass, vocals) (ex-F*ck The Facts), the lyrics always come first and the rest of the song is built around them. Primary songwriter Bourgon mentions that he’s started taking way longer to form and conceptualize song ideas before even picking up the bass and it helped him keep things focused.
Compared to their other albums, they say that this new one is the same, but different; there is evidence of evolution, but fans who have been with them from the beginning will still get along with the new offering.
Greber invites the world to indulge in gritty vocals and a harsh low-end attack. They are recommended listening for fans of Unearthly Trance, Cult Leader and Primitive Man.
“Fright Without” is available from the following labels: Ancient Temple and Nofuneral for Vinyl, CD, and Cassette in Canada, Hibernation Release for Vinyl in the USA, and 7 Degrees and Fresh Outbreak for Vinyl in Europe.

“Greber is here to do one thing, and it’s throw aural punches. The band is now streaming their new single “Into Silence” alongside a new video directed by Torin Langen, both of which are as fantastic as they are disorienting.” – Metal Injection
“Crazed and raging, it reaches fever pitches of savage rampaging. But even in a song (Tree Carving) that barely clears the minute-and-a-half mark, Greber do what they always do — shift gears and contort moods, and electrify the music with constantly changing fretwork and drum patterns. Oh yes, these dudes know how to spin heads as well as traumatize them.” – NoCleanSinging
“the riffs that power Fright Without are frequent and come in a variety of forms. Whether it’s the sludgy plod on songs like “Larkinitis” and “Rats of Subversion” or the full grindcore assault on “Fabricated Purpose” or “Into Silence”, there’s a surprising amount of variety on the record, an attention to textural detail that belies the band’s instinctual approach. While the riff may not be the most important structural element to every Greber song, it’s nevertheless the thing that first grabs the listener’s attention” – Exclaim
“the band’s forthcoming fourth album, Fright Without which grows their combining of elements of punishing sludge, doom, grind and metallic hardcore into a frantic wall of sound that reminds as much of Swans, Napalm Death and Coalesce as it does Big Business, Burnt by the Sun and Painkiller.” – Decibel Magazine
“Chaotic force of nature Greber are set to return with their latest full-length offering Fright Without and they’re angrier and louder than ever. The band hit the listener with a furious wall of sound that sits somewhere between grindcore, sludge and hardcore…. another solid notch in the duo’s already impressive belt ” – Cave Dweller Music
“It goes without saying that Fright Without is an intensely oppressive record, but given that it only spends half an hour trying to suffocate you it’s definitely worth letting it have a go. If you’re a fan of the bands mentioned at the top of this review (Mastiff, Helpless, and Yautja) you should have no disappointments here, and the two-piece dynamic actually ends up working in Greber’s favour in that it sets them apart at least a touch from an increasingly crowded scene of bands devoted so proudly and exclusively to misery and mire.” – Noob Heavy
