Mr Graves entered the infamous fiend club in 1995, performing with the legendary outfit for over 6 years.
During this time, Graves is credited with writing a number of their synonymous hard-hitting anthems (and fan-favourites) including ‘Dig Up Her Bones’, ‘Scream! During this time, he also collaborated with horror director, and “the father of the zombie film”, the iconic George A. Beyond these staples in his long career, Michale has prolifically produced a plethora of studio albums, further produced and directed films, and tours relentlessly for the most part of any year. County Fermanagh’s very own ghoulish quartet Cadaver Club opened proceedings, performing again in Belfast in over a bloody era!
Opening proceedings on this rare two band Distortion Project bill are new kids on the block Ravenlight.
Well, I say “new”, but despite this being their first ever live show, the quartet actually arose from the ashes of two other bands, Selene and Sentinel (with the addition, for this night only, of Conjuring Fate guitarist Phil Horner, temporarily transferring to bass to help the guys out and playing his second gig on this very stage in 24 hours).
Right from the off, it is clear that Ravenlight are ploughing the same gothic, operatic metal course as guitarist John Connor’s previous band, the aforementioned Selene.
at Voodoo, following a visit from Doyle in July 2018, Belfast welcomed the esteemed former frontman and horror-buff Michale Graves to Voodoo Belfast.
Who’s next on his hit-list, I’m sure we’ll soon find out.
