The news just dropped that Beastmilk has transformed into Grave Pleasures. The name change is said to be due to some ‘irreconcilable differences’ between the co-founders of the band, resulting in Johan “goatspeed” Snell leaving the band.
The lineup now still consists of Kvohst and Arina, and Linnea Olsson (The Oath, Sonic Ritual) who joined the band earlier in 2014. They also recruited Juho Vanhanen (Oranssi Pazuzu) as their new guitarist. It’s a bit shame they dropped their Beastmilk name as it really represented something new and unique, but the great news is that they are now entering studio to record their new album. And yes, they will still be playing the Beastmilk classics live!
