BEASTMILK: Co-Founding Guitarist Leaves; New Band Name Announced

Finland’s BEASTMILK have been extremely busy these days. First, they have parted ways with co-founding guitarist Johan “goatspeed” Snell. Thus, the remaining members felt the need to change the band’s name to GRAVE PLEASURES moving forward.

ORANSSI PAZUZU guitarist Juho Vanhanen also joins the ranks for live/studio purposes. The band will have two guitarists now, including Linnea Olsson (THE OATH, SONIC RITUAL).

Additionally, GRAVE PLEASURES are working on their major label deal debut.

Song of the Day: THE OATH May Be the next GHOST

Extreme metal legend, Lee Dorian, has hit quite a few homeruns with his label, Rise Above Records, particularly with GHOST.  Well, it looks like he has another superstar band in the making with THE OATH.  Swedish guitarist Linnea Olsson and German vocalist Johanna Sadonis teamed up to write some excellent classic metal with a dark feel.

Check out the song, “All Must Die,” from their debut full-length, The Oath, which is out now.
