Welcome to the official Grave Forsaken website. We are a Christian thrash band based in Perth, Western Australia. We have released 5 full length albums, 2 EP's and 2 live albums since forming in 2004. We have performed in 4 Australian states, including shows at the Blackstump and Easterfest Festivals. We have been featured in Heaven's Metal fanzine and have built up a following in the underground Christian metal scene.


"There Is No Peace" official video release! 

You can now check out the video clip for our shredding new song "There Is No Peace". This song is featured on our brand new free compilation "Ten Years" as well as being the first single from our next studio album, due out on Soundmass this year!

"Death On The Cross" available on "Ten Years" 

Hi all, Vaughan here. The second track on our compilation album is "Death On The Cross". This song started life as "Crux Of My Dreams" with my old band Katara and then we adapted it with lyrics inspired by "The Passion Of The Christ". We have played this song live since the early days and we regard it fondly. The music was written by myself and a friend of mine named Ben Travia, while I handled the lyrics on my own. Check it out!

Check out "Celebrity Judge And The Sinners Part I" from "Ten Years" 

It was fun putting together the new compilation album. Part of that process was revisiting the old material. The first track on the compilation is "Celebrity Judge And The Sinners Part I". This was one of the earliest songs we put together in 2004. Lyrics were written by Tim Steadman and the music was written by Elias Salmela. This song was influenced by Paramaecium and other doom bands and strongly demonstrates the Elias' love of that genre. This version appeared on our self titled EP that we put out independently in 2005. We didn't know what we were doing but we did it anyway!

Have a listen to this very early Grave Forsaken cut!

Grave Forsaken - Ten Years now available 

To celebrate ten years of the band we are releasing an exclusive, download only compilation album. Just click on the "Ten Years" link in the top menu and you can start downloading now.

The album features at least one song from every Grave Forsaken release, as well as the new Grave Forsaken single "There Is No Peace". This song will be featured on our next studio album, due out in 2015.

As a special bonus, track 20 is a song called "Fundamental Principles". This song has been recorded for a future project that is still in the works. This track won't be on the next studio album, so for the time being it is exclusive to this compilation.

A a special Christmas treat, the entire album can be downloaded in its entirely for free. So what are you waiting for? Celebrate Ten Years of Aussie Christian metal with us!

9th June 2014 

Things have been a little quiet the last couple of months but we have some activity coming up. This Friday we are playing at 8.30pm at the Railway Hotel in North Fremantle. We have a 50 minute set so we are planning 10 songs.

Our latest album is recorded and the cover artwork is being worked on. We are also well into recording the next project after that so there is plenty of new music on the horizon. We would love to get this stuff out to you sooner but all these processes take time and they're often out of our control. The next album is killer and we know you will love it!

15th March 2013 

Hi everyone, mixing of the latest EP is well underway. Last night Elias and I sat down and had a good listen to four of the songs. We are really happy with what weve achieved with our home recording setup. The songs we mixed were Ehyer Asher Ehyer, So We Carry On, Crisis and Prisoner Of Consequence. My goal for the next week is to get 5 of the 8 songs mixed fully. Upon listening last night, Elias and I identified 3 songs that could use a few more guitar parts. Nothing complicated, just little bits that will improve the songs.

We are looking forward to wrapping this project and getting on with the next goal. We have been in discussion over the next move for the band. We have a number of different recording projects in mind and it's a matter of picking one and seeing it through. Because each album takes us about a year from start to finish, we have to carefully decide what is next. For example, this EP has been a huge undertaking. Without Dan's guidance we've had to work out a lot of things as we go. Hence the 8 tracks have taken much longer than hoped to even get to this point. However, we have a track record of delivering an album nearly every year, so we're confident we'll finish whatever we start. Rambling enough?

Catch you all next time!

11th March 2013 

Going to be doing some EP mixing tonight. I think I will just go through them song by song from start to finish over the next couple of weeks.
