Chicago's EARTHEN GRAVE have announced their recent signing to Ripple Music for worldwide release of their debut album, Earthen Grave. The album will be available on CD and double vinyl on July 9th via Ripple Music. The new edition, produced by Ron Holzner, has been completely remastered with four bonus tracks including the new song, Death Is Another Word.... with new drummer Chris Wozniak (LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR) and the epic live 'Stargazer' (RAINBOW) with string section and virtuoso violinist Rachel Barton Pine.
And now the album will finally see a vinyl release. Double gatefold vinyl to be precise, featuring the ten song remastered debut with the new song 'Death Is Another Word….' plus three bonus live tracks. One of the live tracks, 'Death March Intro - End of my Daze', features TROUBLE guitarist Bruce Franklin. That's a whole new side of vinyl featuring 'Stargazer' (Rainbow), plus three more live, never-before-released tracks.
Earthen Grave is dedicated to exploring new possibilities for the genre. As guitarist Jason Muxlow says, "It's not about being the heaviest band or the slowest - it's about having good songs. Second guitarist Tony Spillman and I played doom metal before it was even called that," Ron continues. "And for Jason, the music we pioneered was his influence. We're bringing the strands of the music together - and with the addition of Rachel using the violin as a core component of a metal band, and featuring multi-talented vocalist Mark Weiner we're taking the genre on a new journey."
