UK heavy metal battalion War Grave to release self-titled debut EP featuring Tim 'Ripper' Owens!

It’s time to welcome a new battalion to the ranks of heavy metal – one that celebrates the storied history of the genre and the electric power of its modern incarnations. War Grave take the soaring vocals, thunderous rhythm section, dramatic narratives and spiralling solos of classic metal, inject the precision riffing and headbanging intent of thrash and the vivacious energy of power metal to create an irresistible musical force. After releasing two successful singles last year – ‘System’ and ‘Discovering My Truth’ – the band are now ready to unveil their first, self-titled EP…

The War Grave EP, which was recorded at London’s Monolith Studios with producer Charlie Wilson Jnr. (Torchbearer, Graven Image etc) features five magnificent songs that fire the imagination and unleash a torrent of adrenaline. The world class vocals of singer Roman Kantoch (ex-More) lead the charge, backed by the immaculately crafted riffs and breathtaking solos of guitar team Trent Powell and Stuart Layne (ex-Virus), while drummer Steve Brill and bassist Charlie Gossett supply the heavy artillery.

Together this incredible team have forged a superb set of songs, built upon their instinctive understanding of great heavy metal. The world’s first taste of the War Grave EP comes in the seductive form of single ‘Witch’, a tale of magic, manipulation and a soul in peril that features an incredible guest vocal performance from the one and only Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens – renowned for his amazing work with Judas Priest, Iced Earth, K.K.’s Priest, The Three Tremors and many, many more. One listen to ‘Witch’ and metalheads will be hungry to uncover the rest of the War Grave EPs array of treasures!
