Graveshadow - Reveal New Single 'Gwynnbleidd'

"Gwynnbleidd", a brand new single from symphonic/gothic metal act Graveshadow, has been released. It's the first new music after 2018's Ambition's Price album. The track, which is now available for streaming on various digital platforms, marks the recording debut of the group's new vocalist, Rachl Quinn, as well as new bassist Luci Rae.

According to guitarist Aaron Robitsch, "Gwynnbleidd" was inspired by the popular Netflix fantasy drama 'The Witcher': "I initially wrote the music for the project that Will (Walker, guitars) and I were going to form when Graveshadow seemed like it was over," he explains. "When Rachl was recruited, we felt that the song had the potential to showcase her vocals perfectly and show a strong comeback for the band. Lyrically, Rachl took inspiration from 'The Witcher,' continuing our trend of songs being influenced from a variety of fandoms, including 'Game Of Thrones', 'World Of Warcraft', 'The Legend Of Zelda' and 'Doctor Who'."

Adds Walker: "I'm really excited about this track. I feel it showcases the next natural evolution of Graveshadow's sound, and Aaron did a fantastic job composing it. It was also the first chance we got to work with Rachl in a writing capacity, and I'm thrilled with how it turned out. I was on a huge 'Witcher' kick, so when Rachl wanted the lyrics to center on Geralt and Ciri's relationship, I was on board immediately. We've always enjoyed weaving lyrics about our favorite stories into our music, and I think this is one that our fans are really going to enjoy. It showcases a leap forward in the guitar work, and the orchestrations are bombastic and uplifting at the same time. This is just a taste of what we'll be releasing later this year, and I feel it's a damn fine first sip!"
