GRAVE Parts Ways With Bassist, Announces Replacement

September 1, 2010

Swedish death metal veterans GRAVE have parted ways with bassist Fredrik Isaksson "due to personal reasons and issues."

Fredrik played his last show with GRAVE in late July at the Eisenwahn festival in Germany.

Commented the band: "There is no bad blood between us [and Fredrik] and we thank him for all the years with GRAVE and wish him luck with whatever he may do in the future. His immediate replacer is Tobias Cristiansson (DISMEMBER) who already did a couple of gigs with us the past weeks in Colombia and Finland. Tobias lives, breathe, eat, sleep and shits metal and we are very confident that he will be a great contribution to GRAVE both live and for writing new material."

Professionally filmed video footage of GRAVE's August 15, 2010 headlining concert at the Manizalez Grita Rock festival in Colombia — featuring Tobias Cristiansson on bass — can be viewed below.

GRAVE's latest album, "Burial Ground", was released on June 14 via Regain Records. The CD's cover artwork was created by Costin Chioreanu of Twilight13 Media.

GRAVE's eighth album, "Dominion VIII", was released in April 2008 via Regain Records.

GRAVE's live DVD, entitled "Enraptured", came out in Europe on November 27, 2006 via Metal Mind Productions and in the U.S. on February 1, 2007 via MVD Visual.
