DEICIDE/ex-CANNIBAL CORPSE guitarist Jack Owen has joined the Buffalo , New York-based death metal band GRAVE DESCENT. According to a press release, "Jack is still in DEICIDE; he is a member of both bands. Having his roots in Buffalo and being friends with the guys, it only seemed logical when Dennis John Glinski (vocals) contacted Jack about the second-guitarist opening. Jack will share leads with Mike Green as well as co-write songs. This, really, is a reunion of metal as these guys (including Rich Ziegler, bass) have all shared the stage together in the Buffalo bands: TIRANT SIN, BEYOND DEATH, LEVIATHAN."
GRAVE DESCENT will enter Watchmen Studios in September to record new original material for an upcoming CD release.
Formed in the summer of 2009, GRAVE DESCENT "combines horrific lyrics with a massacre of old-school riffs, death and doom to bring forth their brutal sound," according to a press release.
GRAVE DESCENT is:
* Dennis John Glinski (TIRANT SIN, MAYHEMESIS, CARNAL DISSECTION) - Vocals
* Mike Green (LEVIATHAN) - Guitar
* Jack Owen (CANNIBAL CORPSE, DEICIDE, BEYOND DEATH) - Guitar
* Rich Ziegler (TIRANT SIN, MAYHEMESIS, CARNAL DISSECTION) - Bass
* Dave Riccio (STONEHED, R.U.L.E.) - Drums
In January 2010, GRAVE DESCENT (with former members Link on drums and Grant on guitar) went into the studio to record the self-released three-song limited-edition disc "The Resurrection".
