Grand Finalists - Metal2TheMasses
GRAVES was established back in July 2017 in Leicester, when Brad Mitchell & Ash Barlow recruited Aaron Stagg (Staggy) on drums.

Both Mitchell & Barlow had tracks down prior to this point but a vocalist & lyrics had yet to be established.

Fast forward to October 2017 and Dan Shenton was brought in on vocals to complete the line-up. Dan wrote all lyrics for all tracks and by December 2017 with already 13 tracks completed, we had our live Debut.

We entered Metal to the Masses (M2TM) 2018 and on what was only our third gig (ever) we played our first heat. We had a great run of shows with M2TM 2018 and to our surprise we secured a place in the Grand Final which was held at the iconic DE Montfort Hall in Leicester as part of the Uprising Festival. Although putting on the best performance to date we were not victors on the night. We received glowing reviews from several media outlets who witnessed our performance and we were tipped as being “A band to watch for the future”.
