Featuring ex-Trouble member Ron Holzner and classical virtuoso Rachel Barton Pine, Earthen Grave craft 1970s style doom with the addition of progressive touches and Pine’s elegant but savage violin fretwork. On top of this, the band modernize their sound with a throbbing intensity that is unique to their interpretation of metal.
Originally released in 2012, Earthen Grave was originally released on Claude + Elmo music (and can still be purchased here) but sees re-release with four new tracks and a cover of Dio’s “Stargazer,” complete with the violin talents of Pine, who plays a new type of violin-like instrument called “the Viper.”
In addition to the new album, Earthen Grave launches on a US tour with the following dates in addition to others soon to come:
- Thursday March 28th: Chicago Ridge, Illinois w/ Red Lamb (Dan Spitz X-Anthrax)
- Saturday June 22nd: Days of The Doomed Fest III Cudahy, Wisconsin
- Saturday October 12th: Denver Doom Fest III Denver, Colorado w/ The Skull + Evoken
