ABOUT

Since their inception in 2008, Gravehuffer has crafted their sound into an other-worldly amalgamation of Crust, Punk, Metal, Grindcore, and unapologetic down-tuned Sludge-laden Doom.
From the remnants of former projects Initial Detonation, H.R.B., and Aether Bunny, Krom was formed. Krom evolved into what is now known as Gravehuffer. Without ever making a conscious effort to do so, the Joplin, Missouri band proudly shuns the confines of genre confinements and so-called rules for the sake of the music itself and their collective creative output. Featuring Travis McKenzie on vocals/effects, Ritchie Randall on guitar & vocals, and a rhythm section comprised of Mike Jilge on bass, and Jay Willis on drums & vocals, Gravehuffer steers clear of trends and limits by being themselves and letting the music take them where it wants to go. With an assortment of original songs in their repertoire that showcase the vast array of influence the band pulls from and a fearlessness to never conform or compromise, Gravehuffer is in it for the sake of the songs and the art itself in a world where most are content to follow rather than lead.
Gravehuffer were signed on with Bluntface Records for a special vinyl release of their acclaimed Your Fault album, which features 2 bonus tracks and a guest solo by former Carcass lead guitarist Carlo Regadas. They were briefly with NoSlip Records and released a 2 song EP on vinyl with them.
They are now currently signed with Black Doomba Records, and are currently promoting their new album "NecroEclosion" to be released in January 2021.
