One year ago, we got bummed out that BLACK DAHLIA MURDER guitarist John Kempainen quit the band. Since then, the band has found a suitable replacement in former ARSIS axeman Ryan Knight, but many still wondered what would happen to Kempainen, who was a talented guitarist in his own right. Well, looks like he's formed a new band with an old friend, original BDM drummer Cory Grady called GRAVES ABLAZE (pictured, right).
The two have posted a pretty rad demo on their MySpace page. The band has posted a blog stating they are looking for a vocalist, second guitarist, and bassist who "are ready to tour their asses off by this summer after writing the debut." Sounds like we won't have to wait long to hear more new music out of these two, and I am definitely interested! What do you guys think?
