Bloodstock Festival announces GraViL + watch 'Detonate' new music video


"Pure f**kin’ metal delivered with maximum vitriol. This band rules harder than Josef Stalin." - Dom Lawson

The latest announcement by Bloodstock Open Air this past Tuesday sees the London melodeath group GRAVIL confirmed for the prestigious Sophie Lancaster stage on Sunday 14th August. This new addition to the bill once again demonstrates Bloodstock's commitment to championing new bands in the metal community.


"We are honoured to be a part of Bloodstock Open Air 2017" says GraViL vocalist Grant Stacey. "Each year this spiritual home of heavy metal somehow betters the year before. We have each spent a lot of time on the hallowed ground of Catton Park, witnessing stunning new bands, the earth shattering veterans of the main stage and embracing the metal music community that we have come to call our family. Now we are privileged to grace the SOPHIE stage, whose very name represents the strength and pride of our brotherhood. See you there!"


2017 has seen a resurgence for GraViL. Their sophomore album 'No More Forgiveness' was released in May and has being going down a storm with media and the band's fanbase. With various premieres by the likes of Metal Hammer, Scuzz TV, Terrorizer and more, GraViL have now unleashed the music video for elite track 'Detonate'.


This new video clip shows the group in a high-octane performance which also features three versions of the mysterious woman, 'Obliti'... the present broken self, a lost dream of grandeur and the self-loathing dark entity which destroyed it.


"'Detonate' is a personal song drawn from a negative situation", explains Stacey, "The video captures the lyrics perfectly... it tackles loss, taking charge and using the anger, rage and sadness to triumph over the overwhelming paint that the loss entails... hence detonating."


Whilst the song and video reflect important issues in our society, it didn't stop the band from taking time out to have fun on set and inflict 'crabcore' on non-believers.


"On the way to the video shoot we discussed how low our guitarists get to the floor during live shows. Sparx (bass) mentioned it was called crabcore and a confused Charlie (Webster, guitar) refused point blank to believe there was such a thing. Like a red rag to a bull this spurred us onto mischief, leading to the band shouting "crab it" during the performance sections and band members having to get as low as physically possible to the floor without taking the soles of their feet off the ground."


GraViL's new album 'No More Forgiveness' is out now.


GraVIL live:


23rd June - COVENTRY, Arches (w/ Metaprism)

8th July - BURNLEY, Sanctuary Rock Bar (w/ Metaprism, Today, They Are Older)

14th Aug - BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR (Sophie Lancaster Stage)


More dates to be announced.

"Mammoth grooves from a technically advanced future" Metal Hammer

“GraViL showcase confidence with fantastic, blistering songs” Terrorizer

“Brutalising Tech Metal Wizardry” Kerrang!



With fire and no fear on their side, 2017 sees GraViL rise from the big smoke with the release of their new album 'No More Forgiveness' on 5th May.


Before the album drops, the band pulls no punches with the introduction of lead track 'Decommissioned' (as featured on the latest Metal Hammer 'New Noise III' cd covermount (#293).


Frontman Grant Stacey isn't holding back with GraViL’s return to form, he said, "There is a massive sub-context of loss within the new album, with 2016 notably being a brutal year, however 'No More Forgiveness' pulls in a lot of strength from negativity that all too often engulfs our society and ways of life. It’s time to make a stand and do what’s right... and this is us, doing things right.”


GraViL’s new single ‘Decommissioned’ isn’t shy in coming forward, as Stacey notes, “It deals with betrayal on a huge scale. One of my favourite songs from the album, it’s really punchy and therapeutic, in a twisted kinda’ way!”



'No More Forgiveness' tracklisting:


1) Detonate

2) Are We Alive

3) I Am The Blood

4) Plagues, Thieves And Murderers

5) Locate The Traitor

6) Choke In Silence

7) Fractured, Divided

8) Decommissioned

9) Forever Is A Prison

10) One Eyed King



Produced by Dan Abela (Voices, Sarah Jezebel Deva), the new Gravil album 'No More Forgiveness' is released 5th May 2017 and is available to pre-order now on iTunes with instant download + stream via Spotify. More news to follow.

"Mammoth grooves from a technically advanced future" - Metal Hammer

Following shows at DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL, HAMMERFEST and UK tour with HELLYEAH - one of the UK's best 'melodeath' bands close the chapter on one era and prepares for the next.


'Beyond Reprieve' by London, UK metal act GRAVIL is the new music video from the band's critically acclaimed album 'Thoughts Of A Rising Sun'.


Frontman Grant Stacey reflects back on what has been an exciting and fruitful journey since the band released their 2nd album - "We were blown away by the reaction to 'Thoughts Of A Rising Sun', it was one of those moments where we took the opportunity to make what we felt was our best album to date and then step back to watch things unfold."


GraViL are currently in pre-production for their next album release with the band again working with producer Dan Alba (Voices, Sarah Jezebel Deva) ."The material has got to be right, the songs have to be the best we've ever produced - that goes without saying. 'Beyond Reprieve' is one last bloody love letter from us to you before we move onto the next chapter of GraViL. Bring on 2015!" roars Stacey.
