May 23, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA – GRAVESHADOW – Having just completed a US tour opening for ANVIL and NIGHT DEMON, GRAVESHADOW – a Female-fronted Symphonic Metal band that incorporates Doom, Thrash and Goth Metal influences, based out of Sacramento, CA – will begin their west coast tour today in Seattle opening for Russia’s ARKONA and Norway’s SIRENIA.
“It’s great to be back on the road, especially with bands that have had a profound impact on the genre and us as musicians,” states guitarist Will Walker. “We look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones, it promises to be one helluva week!”
In between tours GRAVESHADOW have continued working on new material for the follow-up to 2015’s Nocturnal Resurrection, and their M-Theory Audio debut.
“The new album is shaping up very nicely and all that’s really left is to fine-tune arrangements and continue rehearsing,” continues Will. “We will record in July with NIGHT DEMON’s Armand [John Anthony – guitarist] and we’re very excited about the project. It’s interesting to see how the new material has developed and we can’t wait to share with everyone. Keep an eye out!”
GRAVESHADOW formed at the end of 2012 creating a sound defined by crushing guitars, beautiful keyboard melodies, thundering bass, and earth-shattering drums. The powerful operatic vocals shift into unearthly growls to create a rich and dynamic atmosphere that is ripe for storytelling. Whether it is a tale of personal struggle or of fantastical creatures, the listener is sure to find themselves immersed in a world apart. Releasing an EP in 2014, and a full-length, Nocturnal Resurrection, the following year Graveshadow have also toured and played shows with Marty Friedman, Flotsam and Jetsam, Unleash the Archers, Apocalyptica, Children of Bodom, Death Angel, Skinlab, Doyle, Wednesday 13 and John 5.
M-Theory Audio features a burgeoning roster that includes such notable acts as Nomadic Folk Metal group Tengger Cavalry, Pagan metal warriors Helsott, doom / psychedelic outfit Blackfinger (featuring former Trouble vocalist Eric Wagner and Dream Death guitarist Terry Weston), Prog/Power Metal band Sicocis and Black Metal Ritualists Empyrean Throne.
