Gravel is Dr. Failure's thirteenth Noise album. This is the first album where Dr. Failure uses both the Rockville RPM109 Mixer and the Audio2000s AMX7322UBT mixer in the same Feedback loop. The reason that it's taken so long to join the two together is A) because of the lack of power outlets in his studio (until he got a power strip), and B) because of the lack of enough patch cables to pair the two together. The sounds of the two mixers together formed to make this album, quite possibly, Dr. Failure's loudest, and most chaotic Noise album to date.

The vocals in this album feature heavy political opinions and philosophical thinkings, as well as some random Bravo Sierra.
