New album coming soon 

We are very pleased to let you know that our new album isn't far off. Stay tuned to this page and our facebook site for all the details as they come to hand. We are really excited to have the new album on it's way and we hope you enjoy it when it comes out.

Studio session went really well 

Hi all, Vaughan here. Just an update to let you know our session at Fattdog Studio went really well yesterday. I took all the tracks we have recorded so far and Dan imported them into his current version of Cubase. A lot of the recording has been done at my house, while Luke recorded all his guitar tracks at his house. It was great to hear all the tracks together through Dan's speakers. We did some vocal recording once the tracks were imported and we also did some initial mixing of the material. Dan is going to mix what we have and then we're going to decide what needs to be added. I was very happy with the way the album was sounding. It's an interesting mix of old and new, because it started life as a straightforward back to basics album. Now that Luke has contributed, it has elements of the last two albums as well. It will be interesting to hear where it sits with the rest of our material. Maybe a cross between "Beside The River Of Blood" and "The Fight Goes On" or something like  that! I am hoping to wrap up recording fairly quickly so we can get it released. I'll keep you all up to date with our progress.

Hitting the studio this Sunday 

Hi all, Vaughan here. I hope you're all going well. After a period of reflection over Christmas and new year I've decided to continue with the current album project. Luke Gallagher, our former drummer and guitarist, has generously recorded rhythm guitar and lead guitar for the album. I'm now planning on finalising the project with Daniel Holmes at Fattdog Studio, starting this Sunday. Over the years we have done a lot of work with Daniel, so I'm very happy to have him onboard. I need to finalise some vocals and guitar parts and then Daniel will mix the album. There are 8 tracks on the album and we hope to put the finishing touches on it relatively quickly. I'll let you know how it all goes.

Founding member Elias Salmela leaves Grave Forsaken 

Hi all, Vaughan here with an important announcement. Founding member and lead guitarist Elias Salmela has made the decision to leave Grave Forsaken after 14 years. We are very sad to see Elias go but we respect his reasons for leaving the band. This decision has been a while in the making and I’ve had many conversations with Elias about it. 

Elias has been a vital member of Grave Forsaken throughout the history of the band and we want to acknowledge his huge contribution. We wouldn’t be the band we are without him. When Grave Forsaken formed Elias was the driving force behind much of what we did. From a personal point of view, Elias has been my best friend and musical partner for many years. He has helped shape me as songwriter and a musician and I appreciate that greatly. 

We wish Elias all the best for the future and we will remain in close contact. Thanks Elias for all the years of service to the metal mission and God bless the next chapter of your life.

23rd September 2018 

Work is continuing on the album. Today I've been listening to some playbacks to get an idea where each of the songs are at. We have a few more vocal parts to record, plus guitar solos but everything else seems to be there. I'm enjoying what I'm hearing and looking forward to finishing the album.
