Specter and Phobos began composing music together and with a now solid line up GRAVDAL hit the stage for the first time in 2006, and have since played with bands like TAAKE and DERIDE, amongst others. With their debut album “Sadist” mixed and mastered by ENSLAVED’s Herbrand at the Earshot studios, GRAVDAL inked a deal with Sweden’s Unexploded Records, and “Sadist” was released in 2008 to great reviews in the metal press world-wide. So what should you expect from GRAVDAL? Well, the band performs “in your face” Black Metal; with lyrics that take as their theme the tragedy of a weak-willed humanity, and the despair into which it sinks due to its conceited misconceptions. But that is not the sum total of GRAVDAL by any stretch of the imagination.
The 2010 release of the band’s sophomore album “Torture Mantra” will show the band ready to demonstrate a new-found maturity in terms of both material and performance. And with guest vocals from SHINING’s Niklas Kvarforth, you can be sure that there will also be a few unexpected twists.
