Los Angeles-based Prosthetic Records is proud to announce the addition of Japan's GRIEF OF WAR to the label's roster. Having formed - in their own words - for the purpose of being the true heir of real heavy metal, GRIEF OF WAR was started from humble beginnings in 2002 based out of Tokyo, and almost immediately after forming, the band quickly started rehearsing to develop and refine their sound through a series pre-productions recordings. Releasing the self-titled 'Grief of WAR' demo in 2003, the band began receiving positive reaction about the release from a handful of CD shops and fanzines inside their native Japan, prompting the quartet to being energetically playing live in June 2004. Through this, the band began gaining an increasing fan base throughout Tokyo through uncountable tours and live dates, including playing together with Danish metal band Mnemic in March of 2005. GRIEF OF WAR finally unleashed the band’s debut full-length, 'A Mounting Crisis...As Their Fury Got Released’ through hometown label Yggr Drasill Records in May 2005.
Self-described as "Samurai Crunch," GRIEF OF WAR aims to capture the title as the heir of real traditional metal in the golden 80s, through a deal with Prosthetic Records set to begin with the release "A Mounting Crisis..." outside Japan on February 19, 2008. You can preview some music from the effort on the band's MySpace page.
