Jon Davis of legendary British doom metal band Conan is pleased to announce his new solo project Ungraven, which showcases his love of nineties metal.
In Jon’s own words: “I am a huge fan of Fudge Tunnel, Ministry, Godflesh, Sepultura and Nailbomb. I fell in love with For All Those Who Died by Bathory on Headbangers Ball and also the Speed Kills comp. Since then I have referenced these bands in some of Conan’s material. With Ungraven I pay homage to the industrial sounds emanating from Birmingham in the nineties with a few other influences that I’ve been obsessing over for a while. It’s super heavy but sightly different from what I have done so far.”
Ungraven’s debut album will be released in spring of 2019, but to celebrate the announcement, Davis has released the track Blackened Gates of Eternity, which you can listen to below:
Before this all kicks off, of course, Conan will be assaulting Australia with their sludge-infested filth at the following select venues later this year alongside Yankee doom duo Bell Witch – do yer ears a favour and get involved!
