Earthen Grave was an American thrash/doom metal band from Chicago, Illinois, formed in 2008, featuring violin virtuoso Rachel Barton Pine.
Earthen Grave was founded late in 2008, as Jason Muxlow was working on a new album for The Living Fields, listening to a lot of Saint Vitus (an '80s doom metal band) and writing down various doom metal guitar riffs. Looking for who might be able to play this style of music with him, Muxlow reached out to drummer Scott Davidson. ... They then enlisted bassist Ron Holzner, formerly of Trouble, to help with this new project. ... The trio put out a classified ad on craigslist.org looking for a vocalist, and Mark Weiner responded the very next day.
