Gravedancer Records Launched; Byzantine Among First Signings
I am very happy for my dude Josh Eldridge, who has now launched his own label Gravedancer Records.
Josh has teamed with EMI to offer worldwide distribution of Gravedancer’s releases, while The MuseBox Label Group will provide label services.
A press release says the label “looks to deliver the best in heavy music and has already inked three great bands that have releases planned for 2012.”
Those include Chrome Waves — a group made up of Jeff Wilson (Nachtmystium, Wolvhammer), Stavros Giannopoulos (The Atlas Moth, Twilight) and Bob Fouts (The Gates of Slumber, Apostle of Solitude) — along with Conan and of course, Byzantine.
The band, who was first discovered by Lamb of God, released three highly respected albums and completed several major tours before calling in quits in 2008, just after the release of their most respected effort Oblivion Beckons.
This spring, the band will enter the studio and begin work on their forthcoming new album, which is tentatively schedule for an October release.
