Graveshadow : “Soldier of 34” Digital single 23rd March 2022 M-Theory Audio. USA Heavy / Black Metal band.
I’m delighted to review a ‘new’ band with Rachel Raxx Quinn. It’s always sad to hear a singer or musician quitting a band they fit in. So it’s with pleasure to follow and hear those artists when they are back in another band.
At first, I thought it was a new band from Rachel, after checking Utube I realized I heard of them before since I loved their previous singer. Listening to this amazing song, got me goosebumps. Rachel’s mélodic voice is such a great fit with the melodies.
She captures your senses deep into the heart. Taken from the album that will come out on July 15th, 2022 both on LP and CD as is of course digital you can purchase right now.
The band had a huge lineup change, which is probably the reason why I thought it was a new band. The main member behind the guitars and growls Aaron Robitsch keeps the roots of the band’s style.

I must say that lineup change is also responsible for the musical change. This song is difficult to set the band into a box. The start of the song is in the Black Metal style and it goes to Heavy Metal melodies with Rachel’s voice and solos.
Going back and forth will help you mosh through. Among a great video to help you fly away. Graveshadow has pushed the limits with this first song from an album that will blow you away. Amazing cover artwork until they wait to buy the complete album.
