War Grave - War Grave

  • War Grave


    RELEASE DATE: APRIL 26th 2024

    In a world of mundanity and small, frightened lives lived in shades of grey and whispers, where we carry our chains uncomplaining through drudgery seasoned with deception, there are still a precious few who paint their path in an explosion of dramatic colour and stand before the titanic waves of triumph and tragedy, arms outstretched. They will not bend the knee or accept the inevitability of our fall into decline and decay. They are the heroes of the dreams we used to dream and they are waiting for us to remember who we are…

    With their exhilarating metal anthems the UK’s War Grave cast towering visions across the canvas of the sky, grand spectacles of witches and warfare brought to life through the brushstrokes of anthemic choruses, irresistible hooks and solos that spiral to the heavens, then fall back to earth in cascading showers of notes. They confront oppression and manipulation, conflict and revenge through sharp, powerful metal which is both classic in form and adventurous in spirit. Elements of thrash entwine with the irrepressible energy of power metal and lead guitars sing like avenging battle angels. From the crisp, incisive riffing of opener ‘War Graves’, to the climactic metal thunder of ‘Price To Pay’, this exuberant debut EP encompasses everything that is great about heavy metal – both its rich history and vibrant, vital present. The first single to be released from the EP is the magnificent vocal duel of ‘Witch’, where War Grave’s Roman Kantoch (ex-More) crosses swords with the legendary Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens (KK’s Priest, ex-Judas Priest, ex-Iced Earth etc). With its earthshaking drums and enthralling storytelling this release highlight is sure to capture the hearts of true metalheads everywhere.

    Produced by Charlie Wilson Jnr. (Torchbearer, Graven Image etc) at London’s Monolith Studios, War Grave sounds fresh, exciting and unstoppable. Available from April 26th on CD and digital formats and in exclusive bundles including the new War Grave patch and ‘Witch’ t-shirt, this EP is destined to be an important addition to the canon of British heavy metal. Cast off your chains and reach for the sky with War Grave!
