GRAVEHILL was spawned to bring back the olden way of Death Metal or as hipster rags read "NWOSDM", we make no apologies and give less of a shit about your opinions! Originally formed in 2001’ as a three piece and within the same year recorded "The Practitioners of Fell Sorcery” demo. This demo began as a limited run cassette tape then later fell into the hands of The Funeral Agency in 2004’. As of 2011' this has been released on 12" Vinyl through A389 Records (www.a389records.com), and as quickly as it began, the original line-up disbanded soon after the debut demo.
In 2006' GRAVEHILL reformed with original drummer & founder Rhett "THORGRIMM" Davis and Vocalist & Metal Maniacs Journalist Mike Abominator, “the brains and heart of the current GRAVEHILL." Over the course of 2007’-2009’ GRAVEHILL released 2 CD’s with ENUCLEATION Records… the “Metal of Death” / “The Advocation of Murder and Suicide” CD/EP and the “RITES OF THE PENTAGRAM” CD. Soon after the RotP CD release with ENUCLEATION Records, the label folded. Leaving both releases free they were later given to IBEX MOON Records (www.Ibexmoonrecords.com) for a combined release of “Metal of Death / Advocation & Rites of the Pentagram” CD’s adding a live DVD to the package as well!
By the summer of 2010’ GRAVEHILL toured the U.S., added a new guitarist Matt “Hellfiend” Harvey (EXHUMED, DEKAPITATOR, REPULSION) to the line-up and by 2011’ played the 9th annual Maryland Death Fest supporting their sophomore record “When All Roads lead to Hell” CD with DARK DESCENT Records (www.Darkdescentrecords.com). By the closing of 2011’ a West Coast Tour with IMPIETY under their belts and later a CHAOS Records (www.chaos-records.com) release of "WARLTH” on both black & bronze 12” vinyl.
2012’ began with a line-up change, by adding 2 new full-time guitarists known only as CC DeKill & Hell Messiah to replace Matt Hellfiend & Bodybag Bob due to their momentous touring schedule for EXHUMED. These new guitarists will participate in the next full length record and all live commitments for GRAVEHILL here forward. GRAVEHILL also accepted an artist endorsement by FERNANDES Guitars (www.fernandesguitars.com) adding a couple Elite V’s to the decibel arsenal for CC DeKill & Hell Messiah, respectfully. GRAVEHILL’s line up is rounded out by longtime bassist & riff-rapist J. Corpsemolester.
