SWEDISH DEATH METAL PIONEERS GRAVE have parted ways with guitarist Magnus Martinsson. The band issued the following statement:


“[We made] this joint decision after going through plans for next year and we needed to address this within the band before we start the new album process. There aren’t now, and have never been, any hard feelings between us and we wish him the best in any future endeavours.”


Martinsson himself comments: “It’s been a great time since I joined Grave back in 2008; I have many amazing memories from our gigs, tours and travels together, and all amazing fans and friends out there […] It’s been a blast!”


The band will be joined by former live-guitarist Mika Lagreen for their 20th anniversary show in Stockholm (12th of November). The band will perform their debut ‘Into the Grave’ (’91) in its entirety.
