Grave replaces guitarist

Swedish death metal band Grave has announced the departure of guitar player Magnus Martinsson, who has subsequently been replaced by Mika Lagreen. The band had the following to say: "Magnus has played with us since 2008 and did some epic tours/shows with us. We took this joint decision after going through plans for next year and we needed to address this within the band before we start the new album process. There aren't now and have never been any hard feelings between us and we wish him the best in any future endeavors. We've recruited Mika Lagreen (Facebreaker) for the Stockholm anniversary gig and he should fit right in since he already handled the stage left axe on our latest European tour. He will of course also be with us through the new album process and upcoming shows/tours." Meanwhile, Grave had the following update regarding their next album: "The plans for our next studio album is also already in the works. We will start writing and arranging songs in November and enter the legendary Studio Soulless again in early January. We also have a very cool idea for a special bonus disc, more on this later. Stay tuned for video diaries and sneak peeks which will be updated all through the process. Album #10 is scheduled for release by Century Media records before the summer 2012."
