Announcement #40: GRAVE (swe) performing an old-school set of demo tracks and songs from “Into the Grave” Thursday 5th September!!!
Tonight we are presenting the final band of the KTDF VII line-up and we have been saving a classic for last. Despite KTDF isn’t about headliners or big bands, we would still like to give homage to the first generation of death metal – the pioneers that started it all a long long time ago. The band we are about to announce has been one of the most defining bands within the Scandinavian scene of the late 80´ies and early 90´ies and performed a crushing set back in February 1993 supporting Bolt Thrower on the very same stage as they will be performing on again during KTDF. A circle will be completed. It’s with the greatest honour that we can present that the mighty GRAVE will be performing an old-school set of demo tracks and songs from “Into the Grave” Thursday 5th September!!!
One of the longest-running Swedish death metal bands, GRAVE has created a sound and style which has been an inspiration on a number of the genre’s more promising younger outfits. Having started out as a band called Corpse in 1986, they released 3 official demos before their legendary 1991 debut. “Into the Grave”, established GRAVE as one of death metal’s most brutal new hopes, and its release was ensued by a host of live performances across Europe and America.
Grave has released 11 full-length albums plus numerous EP´s, live albums, splits, box sets and compilations in the course of its 31 year existence.
Grave is currently signed to Century Media Records and the last release was “Out of Respect for the Dead” from 2015.
