With the release of the Underground Rituals of Those Unseen album, Gravethorn takes a fresh approach to blending metal genres. Laced with addictive riffs, edgy approaches, and plenty of conceptual overtones, the record boasts the aesthetic of death metal anthems. 

"Believe it or not, it all just started with me learning how to mix music in a self-taught manner. During the pandemic, while many people were complaining about shutdowns and rules, I took that as an opportunity to build a studio in my spare bedroom, which is something I wanted to do for a very long time, and now that I had  the time to do it, it was a perfect storm.  I started mixing the demo of a previous band, I was in, and after that band dissolved, I was still writing riffs on Guitar and figuring out how to place those sounds within the mix. Eventually, I had enough material to release a full length CD, and the rest is history," explains the band of their single. 

Gravethorn began as a solo project from its main songwriter Krystof and was never really created with the focus of going anywhere outside of a passion project, but it wasn't long before zines and radio stations from all over the world started reaching out for interviews, so drummer Bob Hill decided to join up for the project having worked with Kyrstof in previous ventures.

The two members are still in search of others to make it a full band effort but in the meantime, this has been an outstanding experience for them both so far.

So, what influences Krystof and Bob to create the music?

Musically, it’s this erratic symphony in my head that’s constantly playing, sometimes I am in a situation, where I can record what I’m hearing, other times my best ideas get lost in the ethyr because I forget about it a few hours later.  Lyrically, it’s often about a common theme that everyone can relate to in one sense or another, and that is about overcoming oppression, rising out of the ashes that you were left with from others who decided what was best for you (or best for them in reality).  People are always going to try to hold you down or hold you back from what you’re truly capable of, for whatever reason whether it’s for power, money, jealousy, etc.  it’s up to us to break out of these cycles and situations and really learn what the maximum versions of our selves can be." says Krystof. 

Underground Rituals of Those Unseen is a testament to where they are at with their sound right now. 

The album is available on all major outlets for streaming and download and the tow of them are always working on new material for upcoming releases.
