Long-running Swedish death metal legend GRAVE has teamed up with Century Media Records to bring back the albums “Dominion VIII” (2008) and “Burial Ground” (2010) as classy, limited coloured and black vinyl editions, hand-numbered Digipak CDs limited to 3,000 copies each, and digitally.
Remastered in 2019 by Ola Lindgren and mastered for vinyl by Patrick W. Engel / Temple Of Disharmony, these records offer crushing and savage GRAVE tracks that fully live up to the group’s morbid legacy.
As reminders of the superb quality of these albums, Costin Chioreanu (At The Gates, Exumer), who created the artwork for both records and reworked the “Dominion VIII” cover for its 2019 edition, produced animated art clips, which you can view below.
The band comments:
” I’m very pleased to finally have the entire GRAVE discography available through Century Media Records. “Dominion VIII” and “Burial Ground” originally were released through Regain Records and I always liked the vibe and the songs on those albums. However I was never really happy with the sound on any of them. So when we decided to have them re-released by CM, I remastered both albums and I think they now sound a ton better. The biggest notable difference in my opinion is on the “Dominion VIII” album which originally was very muddy, “Burial Ground” is also improved with a bit of cleaning and tweaking. Both vinyl masters were made by Patrick W. Engel and sound just killer!
The artwork by Costin was also tweaked and updated a bit for “Dominion VIII” and looks even more amazing than the original.
Regarding a new GRAVE album, which many of you are probably waiting for, we have a lot of ideas and riffs, surely more than enough to put together a new album.
Still, we need a bit more time to arrange these into actual songs and we don’t want to rush anything since every album is as important as the previous one, and with “Out Of Respect For The Dead” being four years old, we want to reward you with a real monster after this long time.
Our goal is to have some news and hopefully present a release date for you by the end of the summer!
So, thanks for your patience, we will see you on stage soon…“
