Flowing black metal band Graveland will play its first live dates ever in August of this year. Composer, guitarist and vocalist Robert Fudali announced his intent to play live on Facebook with the tantalizing detail that most of the set will be older songs with several new ones thrown in the mix, “more or less.”
To longtime underground metal aficionados, this represents a sort of holy grail as like many early black metal acts, Graveland never played live. Formed of a hybrid between grinding Oi and melodic black metal, Graveland distinguished itself early on for its landscape-like melodies and ambient atmosphere, but has since developed its sound to be more like movie soundtracks with layers of instrumentation and composition inspired by ancient traditions in European music, as well as epic soundtracks such as those from the Conan movies by Vangelis. To hear the full evolution in a single show would be of great interest to most black metal fans.

Conan the Barbarian (as well as the sequel) was scored by Basil Poledouris, not Vangelis. (Just getting the facts straight.)
This Is Going To Be Excellent!!
This is really great news!
“Flowing black metal…”
It like you are trying to invite homosexuals here.
I’m certain we can work something out! ;)
Hey, nada de troles. :p
Really hope this is true. Wonder where the shows will be played?
He did play a few really low key shows around the west Polish border in 1998.
Reliable sources say however that this is not likely to ever happen again, sorry guys, it’s a prank.
S.R. Prozak, this shit is tantalizing, indeed, but it seems that you done jinxed it; the Facebook link goes to a ‘Content unavailable’ page. Or is this a cruel prank upon us?! I can’t find anything about an actual show, anywhere.
Darken has expressed a desire to play live for some years now; check his interviews. He said he wanted to do bass/vocals live, and his backing band would consist of members of associated act Woodtemple.
Lord Wind would lend itself really well to a live show in an auditorium.
