The Sacramento-based quintet Graveshadow – who deftly mixes symphonic/gothic metal with elements of doom, thrash and epic progressive power metal – unveil the first taste of their new album via the lyric video for the song, “Widow and the Raven”:
The band describes the track as “a song of self-reflection and the struggle to begin anew.” The song is also available digitally for stream or download at iTunes, Spotify and other platforms.
“Widow and the Raven” comes from the group’s second album, Ambition’s Price, which will be released April 13, 2018 on the Graveshadow’s new label M-Theory Audio. The stunning and detailed cover art for Ambition’s Price was created by Serbian fantasy graphic designer Dusan Markovic (Jag Panzer, Seven Kingdoms, Mystic Prophecy).
Pre-order the CD at the label’s site at www.m-theoryaudio.com/store
“The album title and artwork were directly inspired by events that occurred within Graveshadow over the past few years,” explains the band. “With all the incredible experiences that have come with the evolution of our musical family, a great deal of sacrifice has been given by every member of the band in the pursuit of our dreams. Though the price of our ambition still weighs heavy in our hearts, we are proud of what we have accomplished with this album and are excited by what the future may hold.”
Ambition’s Price features Heather Michele’s powerful vocals that range from operatic highs to unearthly growls backed by crushing guitars, beautiful keyboard melodies, thundering bass, and earth-shattering drums creating a rich and dynamic atmosphere that is ripe for storytelling. Whether it is a tale of personal struggle or of fantastical creatures, the listener is sure to find themselves immersed in a world apart. The new album was produced and mixed by Armand John Anthony (Night Demon, The Fucking Wrath, Gygax), and mastered by Colin Davis at Imperial Mastering (Deeds of Flesh, Decrepit Birth, Origin) and is the follow-up to the group’s Mausoleum Records’ debut, Nocturnal Resurrection, from 2015. Since its release, Graveshadow have toured with the likes of Arkona, Sirenia, Anvil, Night Demon and Unleash the Archers steadily building a following and reputation.
Touring will commence in April as the band supports Norway’s Sirenia and Canada’s Threat Signal on a run of west coast shows. Watch for more specifics soon.
Graveshadow is poised and ready to leave a lasting impact within the metal community. With an electrifying stage show and a sound as large as the Dragons of Westeros, they are as talented as they are unforgettable.

Italians Heretic’s Dream have released their first new material since their 2016 album Floating State Of Mind. It comes in the form of a video and single for the track A Price To Pay. Since releasing their last album, the band have gone through a line-up change but now they are back and once again, firing on all cylinders. Heretic’s Dream are currently working on their fourth studio album, due to be released via Sliptrick Records in Autumn 2018 and with the current working title, Resilience.
Here’s what the band had to say about their new single:-
“The song is about the dichotomy lived by a parent, between the consciousness that his child deserves to live his life and to have his own experiences (even the toughest) and the temptation of preserving him from dangers and suffering.
“To love you is to die a bit, and make a deal with Hell / to love you is to dance with fear/to love you is to let you go, my words just run in circles”, states the chorus, while the video tells the story of a child divided between two fighting parents.
The child’s love overcomes the adults’ barriers and the two separated parents even end up meeting each other in a common embrace with their child. Waiting for a phone to ring is A Price To Pay when you love someone who learns daily to become a man in this world.”
