April 18th 2024 - Grave Forsaken Update 

Vaughan here, welcome to the latest update. It continues to be an exciting year for the band. We have been really happy with the streaming numbers for “Moment In Time”. It has been our best album launch yet streaming wise, something we are pleased to have achieved 20 years into our history!

Matt and I had our first rehearsal for some time on Friday night just gone. Tim was away on holiday, but we plan to meet up at the rehearsal studio again soon. Matt and I cranked the amps and came up with a solid set list that covers our entire recording history. We have one song from each album and EP, for a total of 12 tracks. We will need to operate as 3 piece for the foreseeable future given that Luke has moved to Nashville and records his album parts remotely these days.

Now that the album is released, I've switched my focus to some other Grave Forsaken projects. I'm gradually getting the back catalogue on bandcamp, and I've nearly got through that task. After that we will be doing limited CD runs of some of the older releases that are either running low or were never on CD in the first place. I'm tentatively working on a live bootleg release as well, but we'll assess the sound quality before deciding whether to release it or not.

The other project we're just starting to think about is “Twenty Years”, our next compilation album. With this project, we'd love your feedback. Send us a list of your favourite Grave Forsaken tracks and we'll start working out what to put on it! 

As always there was a new Grave Forsaken video update posted on YouTube on Saturday and a new Grave Forsaken podcast episode posted on Monday. Please check those out and subscribe so you never miss an update!

I’ve been putting out regular Grave Forsaken podcast episodes this year, please consider having a listen if you aren’t doing so already. I really enjoy doing the podcast. I sometimes go off on a tangent and find myself talking about some random aspect of our history!


I’ve been thrilled that “Power Of Salvation” is nearing 500 views on YouTube. I’ve had good feedback about the tune and I’m really happy with the lyric video that Juan made using Ward Silverman’s terrific artwork. If you haven’t seen it yet what are you waiting for! While you’re on our channel, check out a few of the regular video updates I’ve been uploading this year!


We are so excited as a band to be getting back into rehearsal mode in early April. We have a studio booked and we can’t wait to get jamming on our tunes again. I’m looking forward to sharing photos from the rehearsal with all of you! We are committed to sharpening our live chops as we enter the next phase of band life. Our Christian metal mission will never stop. We’re so glad all of you are along for the ride.

The current core focus is on promoting the new album. I’m reaching out to heaps of Christian radio stations and shows, so hopefully you’ll soon start hearing Grave Forsaken on those soon! The feedback received so far is all positive. As well as that, we are working on a few special projects for the 20th Anniversary that will be talked about more as the year goes on. We are striving to make 2024 a big one for the band, God willing. Thanks for joining us on the journey!

God Bless and Rock On!

7th March 2024 - “Moment In Time” approaching fast 

Hi all,

Vaughan from Grave Forsaken here, thanks for reading the latest update. I’ve been really enjoying the process of plugging the new album “Moment In Time” as much as possible before the March 29 release date. Having worked on it for so long, I’m very happy to be at this point where it’s nearly time for release. We’d really appreciate it if everyone reading this orders a physical copy, it’s the best way you can help support the band. The pre-order link is below!


We were thrilled to pass 200 subscribers on YouTube this week. Our lyric video for “Power Of Salvation” is heading toward 500 views, so if you haven’t subscribed and seen the video, please check it out!


As part of our plans to celebrate 20 years of Grave Forsaken we’ve arranged to start rehearsals in April. The focus in recent times has been on the album, so we’re excited about finally getting back into the rehearsal studio and jamming on some Grave Forsaken tunes. We’ll bring you photos and updates as we get back into it!

Well that’s it for this update, thanks again for your support of the band!

God Bless and Rock On!


29th February 2024 - Get ready for “Moment In Time”! 

Hi all

Vaughan from Grave Forsaken here. We’ve been delighted with the response to our new song “Power Of Salvation” from the upcoming album “Moment In Time”, due out March 29th on Soundmass. The lyric video is getting a good number of views. If you haven’t seen it yet please check it out by following the link below.


The pre-order is available now from Soundmass. Please consider purchasing a CD copy. Every copy counts, and if each of you were to purchase a copy it would go a long way towards covering manufacturing costs. It goes without saying that the more copies we sell, the more projects we can do in the future. Right now my brain is overloaded with music ideas that I’d love to share with you all! The pre-order link is below.


The other way you can support the band is to subscribe to our podcast and YouTube, as well as liking all our social media posts. I’m sure you all know the more engagement a post has, the more it seems to get viewed. We’ve had a real uptick in engagement this year and we’d love that to keep growing and growing, We’ve been uploading regular content this year and it’s free, so you’ll always get your money’s worth! Also, if you listen to Christian metal radio, please consider taking the time to request Grave Forsaken music. We are really keen to draw programmers attention to our band, and you can help!

Thanks again, and you’ll hear from us soon!

God Bless and Rock On!


27th February 2024 - New album “Moment In Time” available for pre-order from Soundmass! 

Hello Grave Forsaken Supporters!

I am thrilled to announce that our new 2024 album “Moment In Time” is now available for pre-order from Soundmass. Follow the link below to get to the pre-order page! We are so happy to be working once again with Soundmass for this release. The album is set to drop on March 29th. Be amongst the first to secure your copy!


The cover artwork was painted by Ward Silverman and the layout was designed once again by Scott Waters. These two extremely talented individuals have helped us put together a terrific looking album!

Get a taste of the new album by by checking out the lyric video for “Power Of Salvation” on YouTube. This super cool video was put together by the one and only Juan Carlos Arce. Juan previously made our “Temple Of Crucifixion” video. Give it a like and comment! The link is below…


Soundmass has this to say about the album

They’re back! From the searing leads, gang vocals and hooks galore of opener “Back To The Start”, to the prayerful “Arise O God”, through to the “Power Of Salvation” onslaught and relentlessness of “Strong Conviction”, you’ll soon forget that it has been 4 years since the last Grave Forsaken album. They continue to mix classic metal with thrash metal stylings – this is thumping heavy metal, solid as a brick, diverse but cohesive. The band have truly taken up the baton of Christian metal in Australia from those who came before them. It’s a “Moment In Time” to celebrate 20 years of Grave Forsaken!

Thanks for all your support and enjoy the build up to “Moment In Time”…

God Bless and Rock On!

22nd February 2024 - Grave Forsaken Update 

Hi all,
Vaughan here, thanks for checking out the latest update. We’ve had another good week of content and interaction. I posted a new video update on YouTube Saturday and I posted a new episode of the podcast on Monday. The links are below, and please consider subscribing to both if you haven’t already, it’d be great to push past 200 YouTube subscribers in particular!



I’ve been working on a remix of “Plugged Into The System” and I’m hopeful of releasing that in some form this year. I’ve also been going through live audio from the last decade or so to see if there’s some diamonds in the rough. I am feeling extremely motivated right now, it’s an exciting time!

Thanks again everyone and stayed tuned for lots of cool stuff as we celebrate 20 years of Grave Forsaken!

God Bless and Rock On!

Vaughan and Grave Forsaken
