Grave Interview

No matter how big Grave become they’re always going to be underground. Their subject matter may be gruesome, but this band are far from ruthless, bloodthirsty killers or demonic tyrants. On stage these guys are gods but offstage they’re down to earth guys just out there to play brutal music.

Having been playing for over 20 years now, they’ve been around almost as long as death metal itself. Joining Marduk on their tour of the Panzer Division album, we caught up with the only remaining founding member Ola Lindgren at the Underworld for a catch-up on the future of Grave.

The Swedish old-school death metal scene is popularized mainly by three bands: Grave, Unleashed and Entombed.  All three bands have certainly had their ups and downs whether it be changes in the musical climate, personnel changes or releases that just, truth be told, didn?t measure up to the rest of the band?s catalogue.  Grave, in particular, took a five year hiatus from recording in the late 90s after the EXTREMELY ROTTEN LIVE album was almost universally scorned by fans and critics alike.  Fast forward to 2002 and Grave returned with the punishing BACK FROM THE GRAVE to show fans that they still had some life left in them but it was on 2004?s FIENDISH REGRESSION that the band really found their groove again.

I spoke with Grave?s vocalist/founder Ola Lindgren at the ungodly hour of 6:00AM about his choice of working with Peter (Hypocrisy) and Tommy Tagtgren on the new CD, the new lineup, melodic death metal and what exactly the band did during their extended break from the studio.
