“The Swordsman,” the latest single from the forthcoming album, “The Uncertain Hour” (out July 15th) from Sacramento-based quintet GRAVESHADOW.
“The Swordsman," available for streaming/download on all digital platforms, is also special as it features guest vocals from Chelsea Murphy (Dawn of Ouroboros, Cailleach Calling, Tegmentum).
“I’m really excited to release ‘The Swordsmen’ which has kind of snuck up on me as another favorite off the record, explains GRAVESHADOW vocalist Rachl “Raxx” Quinn. “The interplay of the clean and harsh vocals was something I was thrilled with the outcome on. The way they support each other really adds a great dynamic to the song. As a band it was great to have Chelsea guest on the track, her performance is absolutely incredible!”
Pre-orders for CD and limited-edition (200) vinyl copies of GRAVESHADOW's upcoming third album, “The Uncertain Hour,” are available at www.smarturl.com/graveshadow
“The Uncertain Hour” - produced by Miss May I guitarist Justin Aufdemkampe (Clutch, War of Ages) and featuring artwork by Roman Ismaylov (Battle Beast, Beast In Black) - sees the new lineup for GRAVESHADOW continue to refine their enticing mix of symphonic, gothic, doom, and epic progressive-metal elements, now augmented by the newfound energy that has been brought into the band by the soaring melodic performance of new vocalist Rachl “Raxx” Quinn and the rumbling rhythm section of new bassist Luci Rae and new drummer Bones Padilla (formerly of labelmates Cultural Warfare). The returning guitar duo of William Lloyd Walker and Aaron Robitsch once again deliver a beautiful display of guitar histrionics that tastefully mix searing shred with warm melody. Graveshadow are back on the scene with a story to tell. Intertwining melodic highs and crushing lows to sweep listeners away on a journey of self-discovery, loss and the will to carry on.
GRAVESHADOW will also begin their West Coast tour on July 15th, the same day as album release, performing alongside Pacific Northwest blackened progressive-metal group VINTERSEA on “The Uncertain Hour Tour 2022." Full tour dates on the band's Facebook.
