The end of an era!
The wait is finally over, the final chapter in the Charon suite is finally out!
This first pressing (1000 copies) of ”Ending” consist of an exclusive 6 panel DIGIPACK-CD.
Grá was formed in 2010 by Heljarmadr (Cursed 13, Domgĺrd, Dark Funeral) and Dimman (Spazmosity, Cursed 13). The band has since then released an EP, two full lenght albums, a mini-CD, two singles, a full live video, numerous live concerts and several music videos. Grá performs classic Swedish styled black metal, singing mainly in their native tongue. Since the beginning up until now all releases have been focused around the concept of death. From the longing for death, to the dying and further on to the passage to the other side.
The latest album "Ending" is the final part in the chapter and mark the end of an era. The album includes prominent guests from the Scandinavian underground such as Eldur (Fortid, ex-Den Saakaldte etc) and Grim Vindkall (Domgĺrd, Snakeskin Angels, ex-Nox Aurea) and Fjällbrandt (Panphage). Grá is a well reputated live act and has been hand picked to open shows for bands like Taake, Dark Funeral and ABSU to mention a few. Alongside Heljarmadr and Dimman, Grá consist of Maugrim on guitar and session live members Grim Vindkall (Domgĺrd, Nox Aurea, Snakeskin Angels) and M (Spazmosity).
The name Grá comes from a mixture of the Icelandic "grár" and the Swedish "grĺ", simply meaning "gray". The major content of the lyrical concept is based upon the ancient Scandinavian religion, or rather upon the dark aspects of ancient Scandinavian spirituality. Grá is not a part of any organized religious movements but stands as an independent force. Grá uses Charon from the ancient Greek mythology as a symbol of transition. Death is always present.
