It's been a long hard road for Connecticut's Graven Image. Over the past couple of years, the band has both solidified its lineup with the addition of seasoned vocalist Martin O'Brien (Beyond Reality/Weapon X) and fortified it with its newest additions, bassist Andrew Purchia and guitarist Scott Williams to go along with band mainstay, drummer Phil Michalak. Through this time, composer/guitarist Paul Coleman has refined/fine tuned the band's material and now on Saturday, December 15, 2012, the band will unleash its debut CD "The Future Started Yesterday."
The story of "The Future Started Yesterday" didn't come about until after most of the songs were written. As the band was writing new material, it was found that many of the songs had a common theme. From that point, the story of a soldier's return to the U.S. having to deal with post traumatic effects was born. As for the music, Graven Image plays metal the traditional way. On this release, the band successfully carried over more aggression in the studio than that of the live performances.
Guitarist Paul Coleman commented on the album: "I am very proud of this album and the guys on it. To write an album that's a concept is tricky enough, but to write one that raises social awareness is even harder. We set out to release something that would make you use your head, not just bang it."
Bassist Andrew Purchia added: "This is very exciting. With the release of this album it's a rebirth for me, but also vindication."
"The Future Started Yesterday" was recorded in October 2012 at Vision Recording Studios and was produced by David Vignola and Graven Image.
