Three members of the legendary Swedish death metal band GRAVE have joined forces with Florida-based guitarist Ralph Santolla (OBITUARY, DEICIDE) in a brand new group called REDSCREAM. The project is currently writing material in Stockholm while seeking a lead singer to complete the band's lineup.
A new four-minute video clip featuring rehearsal and behind-the-scenes footage can be seen below.
Regarding how REDSCREAM came together and its future plans, the group tells BLABBERMOUTH.NET, "In April, OBITUARY, GRAVE, and PATHOLOGY toured Europe together on the 'Metal Chainsaw Massacre' tour. Everyone involved agreed that it was one of the best, most fun tours we had ever done, and the chemistry on the bus was really good. The 'Late Night Party Crew' (Trevor Peres, Ronnie Bergerstl, Oscar Ramirez, Tobbe Cristiansson, Ralph Santolla, Ola Lindgren, and Tim Tzsieconanovichski) also found we all loved the same classic rock, classic metal, and Southern rock. After many nights of cranking THIN LIZZY, RIOT and DEEP PURPLE, the guys in GRAVE and Ralphy decided to form a band and call it REDSCREAM (cheap wine). Well, now Ralph has been in Stockholm for a month and we've been writing like crazy. Today we actually finished our fourth song.
"It's hard to describe a sound, but every day before practice we listen to hours of IMMORTAL, DEF LEPPARD, DIMMU BORGIR, KATY PERRY, SCORPIONS, KISS, RAINBOW and TRIPTYKON. Strange but true!
"We have another week of work, then a break for the GRAVE U.S. tour, then we will spend the whole month of October writing and meeting with prospective singers."
