Earthen Grave (CECD001) is produced by Ron Holzner, and will be released on Holzner’s independent label Claude and Elmo Music. It features the single “Blood Drunk,” which explores themes of love, trust, lies and revenge and features guest vocalist Kristin Joy Elane. Additional tracks include “Beneath a Shovel Load,” “Relentless,” “Burning a Sinner,” “Life Carries On,” “Tilted World” and “Earthen Grave.” The Earthen Grave album influences include metal legends Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Metallica and Slayer. "We are very proud of this CD. The whole band played at such an extreme level with amazing results. This has been one of the best musical experiences of my life,” says Holzner. Mark Weiner adds “It’s an overall record that explores the walks of life good and bad.”
Earthen Grave’s sound is driven by the unique alchemy of its members: Ron Holzner on bass (formerly of Trouble), classical violinist Rachel Barton Pine on extended range electric flying V violin, Mark Weiner on vocals, Jason Muxlow and Tony Spillman on guitar and Scott Davidson on drums. Earthen Grave has shared the stage with such luminaries as Megadeth, Black Label Society, Mayhem, Trouble, Symphony X, Macabre, Anvil, Machine Head, Pentagram, Novembers Doom, Raven, Skindred, and Nachtmystium and played at Indianapolis’ Templars of Doom III festival, Days of the Doomed festival in Kenosha WI, Milwaukee’s Rave, Wisconsin’s Brat Stop and Vnuk’s, New York’s Piano’s and Europa Club, and Philadelphia’s Mill Creek Tavern, as well as at Chicago-area landmarks The House of Blues, The Metro, Double Door, Reggie’s Rock Club, Shark City, Chicago City Limits, Abbey Pub, and Pearl Room and Millennium Park.
The group’s EP Dismal Times, has been hailed by critics as "pure, head-banging bliss" (MaximumMetal.com), while Doommantia.com wrote that Earthen Grave has the “songwriting capabilities to make one of the best albums ever” and Hellridemusic.com adds “If the doom gods are with us, this band will stay around and continue to produce the kind of unique, powerful and thoughtful music contained on Dismal Times.” You may see and hear more at EARTHEN GRAVE.COM
