GRAVESHADOW Bring The Epic And Symphonic On New Album ‘The Uncertain Hour’ In Stores And Online Now!


The Sacramento-based quintet GRAVESHADOW – who deftly mixes symphonic/gothic metal with elements and influences from a variety of styles to create something epic, progressive, melodic and powerful - release their long anticipated new effort ‘The Uncertain Hour’ on CD, limited-edition vinyl and digital formats.

“Can’t believe we are here,” claims guitarist William Lloyd Walker. “It’s been a challenging road but I’m incredibly proud to finally release ‘The Uncertain Hour’ for everyone to hear. This group has come together so well on a creative and personal lever. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!”


GRAVESHADOW’s third album, ‘The Uncertain Hour,’ was produced by Miss May I guitarist Justin Aufdemkampe (Clutch, War Of Ages), mastered by Alberto De Icaza (Crobot, Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist) and features artwork by Roman Ismaylov (Battle Beast, Beast In Black). It sees a new lineup for GRAVESHADOW 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. 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, while Aaron even adds some harsh backing vocals. 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.


Jewelcase CDs, limited-edition vinyl (200 copies) of 'The Uncertain Hour' are available in stores or can be ordered online HERE, as well as digital downloads/streaming.

Three digital singles and videos have been released in the buildup for the album. The first taste of new music from the reformed lineup came with The Witcher inspired song “Gwynnebleidd” way back in May 2020. It proved the revamped quintet could create new music and be accepted by their existing fanbase and a new audience.


Collaborating on more new music further sessions continued and were evidenced by “Soldier Of 34” and “The Swordsman” (the latter even featuring guest vocals from Chelsea Murphy of Dawn of Ouroboros, Cailleach Calling and Tegmentum) .
