GRAVE "As Rapture Comes" CD (Osmose Productions 2022)
“One of the most influential of all Sweden's death metal bands” (according to Kerrang!), GRAVE return with 2006's vicious sonic assault, “As Rapture Comes”.
Continuing a tradition of genre-defining brilliance, their seventh full-length release delivers mountain-levelling hooks and devastating low frequency blows. Alongside Entombed, Dismember and Unleashed, GRAVE are considered to be pioneers of the distinguished Swedish Death Metal scene and have remained true to their musical roots and legacy throughout the years.
Formed under the moniker “Corpse” in 1986 and then changing to GRAVE in 1988, the band reached a legendary status within the underground scene of the late 80's/early 90's.
Morbid, tuned-down crushingly brutal yet catchy hymns combining irresistible groove and sheer violence became a trademark for the band which they never did completely lose like so many other veterans of the death metal movement.
