On Friday, September 26, 2014, during the performance as the opening act to Prong and Overkill, Connecticut traditional metal band Graven Image announced that the band will now be known under the moniker: As Darkness Dies. The name change will launch a new chapter for the band, which seeks label support for the upcoming release "Life Incomplete." The release was originally planned to be an EP, however, it will likely be extended and released as a full length.
The band cites the reason for name change to avoiding confusion with the myriad of previous acts under the same name.
The band has been working with Obsession/ex-Loudness/ex-Yngwie Malmsteen vocalist Michael Vescera, who will produce and mix the album. More information on "Life Incomplete" is expected soon. More...
