Earthen Grave Signs With Ripple Music, Re-Releasing Self-Titled Album

Nominated as one the best newcomers of 2012 in our annual year-end awards, Chicago's Earthen Grave is thrilled to announce its signing to Ripple Music for the worldwide release of the band's debut self-titled album (reviewed here).

The album will be available on CD and double vinyl on July 9th via Ripple Music. The label also comments:

"Formed in 2008, Earthen Grave is a five-piece Chicago metal band that marries the sounds of metal past and future with a sweaty, pummeling live show. Earthen Grave boasts an undeniable collective metal and musical pedigree. Each member is an accomplished musician and a veteran of the metal scene, including Ron Holzner who was a member of the seminal and seismic doom pioneers Trouble - a band widely regarded as one of the most important unsung American metal bands of all time.

"In addition, Earthen Grave has that 'extra something special' with occasional guest 6th member live and boasting a Full collaboration on the new release with Rachel Barton Pine. Rachel, a world-renowned classical violinist brings her frightening classical chops to a relatively new instrument, the Viper.

"Now to be reissued through Ripple Music, the new edition of the album, 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 10 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 the epic live Stargazer (Rainbow), plus three more live, never-before-released tracks."
