RonnyAntestor“We had our first band practice yesterday [June 19] with the new line-up. We also tried out a new member on vocals. Please welcome to the band Ronny Hansen [Antestor, Vaakevandring, Morgenroede].”

The follow up to the band’s 2008 ep “The Nightshift Worshiper” is titled “When Dying Souls Scream Praise” was released March 12 via Bombworks Records. This is Grave Declaration debut full lenght, the album contains 12 tracks and features guest vocals from Ronny on the song ‘Change of Heart’. The song can be streamed below. Our review for “When Dying Souls Scream Praise” can be found here.

Grave Declaration started out as a project where I wanted to make worship songs in the metal genre. Through the years I have hardly ever found a church that played music I felt comfortable with, so I figured I would try to write some myself. I believe that when the church uses music as a tool for worshiping God, it’s a much more powerful tool when you can associate to the music. When it comes to the lyrics, I’ve gone in some of the same direction as David does with the psalms in the bible. In a lot of the psalms, he describes his circumstances, how bad everything is, how he feels like he’s dying, or people want him killed, but through it all, God is still worthy of praise, and in God, he finds hope and comfort. – Thor –

The current Grave Declaration line up consists of founder Thor Georg Buer [guitars, programming], Kristian Larsen [guitars], Pål Haugland [bass], Jo Henning Børven [Drums] and Ronny Hansen [vocals].

Antestor‘s long awaited album “Omen” has been released on Dec. 2012 also by Bombworks Records. The album is the follow up to “The Forsaken” [2005]. You can click here to read the album review for ”Omen”. In September of last year we did an interview with Ronny, check it out here.
