GRAVESHADOW - Returns With New Single And New Members

California (USA) based female fronted symphonic/gothic metal band Graveshadow have released a new single, "Gwynnbleidd", the Sacramento based act's first new music in two years. The track marks the recording debut of the group's new vocalist, Rachl Quinn, as well as new bassist Luci Rae. You can view a streaming audio player in the player below.

According to guitarist Aaron Robitsch: ""Gwynnbleidd" was inspired by the popular Netflix fantasy drama 'The Witcher.' I initially wrote the music for the project that Will (Walker, guitars) and I were going to form when Graveshadow seemed like it was over," he explains. "When Rachl was recruited, we felt that the song had the potential to showcase her vocals perfectly and show a strong comeback for the band. Lyrically, Rachl took inspiration from 'The Witcher,' continuing our trend of songs being influenced from a variety of fandoms, including 'Game of Thrones,' 'World of Warcraft,' 'The Legend of Zelda' and 'Doctor Who.'"

"Gwynnbleidd" is expected to appear on Graveshadow's forthcoming EP, which will further showcase the potential displayed on their 2015 debut Nocturnal Resurrection and Ambition's Price, both of which saw the group deftly mix symphonic and gothic metal with elements of doom, thrash and epic progressive power metal. Additional details on the new release will follow in the coming months. Link
