Legendary Swedish death metallers GRAVE entered their own Studio Soulless this past weekend to begin recording their new album, tentatively titled “Endless Procession Of Souls”. The band is laying down 12 songs — nine new tracks plus three “very special” cuts — for the CD, which will be released mid-2012 via Century Media Records
GRAVE recently parted ways with guitarist Magnus Martinsson. According to the group, Magnus — who has played with GRAVE since 2008 — and his now-former bandmates made “this joint decision after going through plans for next year and we needed to address this within the band before we start the new album process. There aren’t now, and have never been, any hard feelings between us and we wish him the best in any future endeavors.”
GRAVE‘s current lineup is as follows:
Ola Lindgren – Guitar/Vocals
Mika Lagrén – Guitar
Ronnie Bergerstål – Drums
Tobias Cristiansson – Bass
GRAVE‘s November 12, 2011 concert at Club Distortion/Kulturhuset in Stockholm, Sweden was filmed for future release. The band celebrated the 20th anniversary of its classic 1991 debut album, “Into The Grave”, by performing the LP in its entirety, along with “another handful classic tunes.” Support at the show came from VICIOUS ART and GENERAL SURGERY.
GRAVE in September completed a North American headlining tour with support from BLOOD RED THRONE, PATHOLOGY and GIGAN.
GRAVE‘s latest album, “Burial Ground”, was released on June 14, 2010 via Regain Records. The CD’s cover artwork was created by Costin Chioreanu of Twilight13 Media.
