Ingraved’s mission is to mix modern extreme metal and hardcore elements into engaging atmospheres and to bring an attitude based on commitment, friendship and respect onto the stage.
While the world of contemporary metal music is saturated with bands focused on brutality or futile ostentation, Ingraved’s main goals are in writing high grade songs and playing vibrant live shows. Not on the parts that make the total, but on the total itself.
This is why, after learning how to hit hard, sound tough and level small towns efficiently, the guys are now moving towards new territories: exploring melodies and new solutions, without losing any of its impact force.
Spanning its career Ingraved has earned respect and shared the stage with well known international acts such as Brutal Truth (USA), Soulfly (Brazil), Brujeria (Mexico), Carpathian Forest (Norway), Hate Eternal (USA), Misery Index (USA), See You Next Tuesday (USA), The Crown (Sweden) and many more.
Now, the band is totally focused on the release of their new album, Onryou 怨霊, born at the legendary 16th Cellar Studios in Rome. A work built from “blood, sweat and tears” and based on revenge, as seen throughout Japanese culture.
Note: throughout its existence, the band has changed line-up several times. Usually this is boring to read about in biographies. However, we can never forget Damiano De Parigi, guitarist and founding member of Ingraved, who died in 2002 in a car accident on the way to the rehearsal room. A loss that makes our hearts bleed and a memory that cannot be absent on this page.
