Landmine Marathon with Krysta Martinez
Landmoine Marathon

Landmine Marathon have waved goodbye to their enigmatic vocalist Grace Perry (on good terms!) and have welcomed the shredded throat of Krysta Martinez to the front position. The frontwoman, also of Portland's Transient, has already laid down vocals for the track "Dead Horses" from their recent Gallows and you can check that out below.

The band issued the following statement regarding Perry's departure and the arrival of Martine on lead throat:

"This summer, Grace decided to leave the band to pursue non-musical endeavors. We are grateful for all of her contributions to LANDMINE MARATHON and wish her nothing but future successes."
Martinez offered the following regarding her recruitment
"I'm stoked to be creating music with Landmine Marathon and look forward to hitting the road with them in coming months. Grace is an amazing vocalist, and filling her shoes is a great challenge. Things have been incredibly enjoyable so far and the best is surely yet to come."
Godspeed to Martinez, see you on the road.

Check out the revamped "Dead Horses" below, along with the original, plus a couple Transient streams as well.

do people seriously like this band aside from the fact that grace is attractive?

^they have fans, so yes, i'm assuming they do. Does that answer to your failed attempt at a snobby rhetorical question suffice?

^ no. And since you'd never have known that Grace was a woman from her singing, you have to wonder why they chose another woman to replace her. My guess is that the record label leads them around by their nose rings.

^ I mean, I know that i'm losing sleep over this issue considering how much it affects me personally, how about you?

Krysta is one of the most powerful extreme vocalists on the scene right now. Any band that she works with is a lucky band. So, fuck anonymous comments about "nose-rings", we'll see what kind of comments people have after this band scorches the motherfucking earth with their sound.

Hi Bill. I'm Jason (1:03(2)). There, I'm no more anonymous than you. So where were we? Ah, yes. Nose rings.

No one in the band has a nose ring

i don't like this band but i'm too afraid to give out my fake what do i know?

Yeah, the fact they chose another female vocalist shows that they want to make money, thats their ringer, a woman vocalist. If thats what they want to do, thats on them. Doesn't make me respect them any more or less. I was there for the beginnings of this band and I liked them a lot for their sound, but as they played increasingly expensive shows, I kinda lost interest. Meh- theres a million other bands out there far better IMO

1:59 - You fail, Lulzy. They were talking about the girl who left the band, not her replacement. Go back to sleep.

You guys are missing the point! Everyone knows that Ryan Butler was, is and forever will be the hottest piece of ass in Landmine Marathon... Whatever hot girl they have on stage is just there to scream.

Pure sex is channeled from the cries of the battered and abused, amplified through flesh made lustful by Butler's scent, and expressed with militant vehemence through guitar lines fallen emperors would rise to lay ears upon. I rest my case.

^probably the first successful attempt at humor on this site, ever.

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2012 3:01 PM

all of you sad fucks are a bunch of losers and i am one too for responding for this but first of doesn't any band just in it for the money? also maybe they want a girl singer for what they are going for not because they want attention. having a girl singer is not all that great anymore so i totally doubt it was for that reason. either way all of you just cant get a girl and if you do im sure she is a huge fat bitch so you just hate on all the skinny somewhat attractive metal ladies out there and jealous that you probably cant pull that kind of signing and even have the balls to get on stage to perform

Posted by Debo | October 25, 2012 3:02 PM

I respected them with Grace, but choosing another female vocalist smacks of a lame gimmick.


Posted by Kevin | October 25, 2012 3:05 PM

Cause you would replace a Death Metal drummer with a doom metal drummer?

its sad to see grace leave.. and even sader to know that theres no way anyone can ever replace her great talent.. i definitly think this new chik has potential but no one ever like grace.

Posted by alex | October 25, 2012 4:08 PM

I basically think you're all a bunch of faggots.

1:59 is back, the little twirpy hipster that got beat up in high school by metalheads and now lives in Williamsburg with all his cool roommates. Dummy. You're not funny, or cool and you should get the shit kicked out of you again and again for posting the same stupid sausage, LULZ and AMIRITE memes. Don't you realize people fucking hate you and think you're a sad little troll? I guess you don't. What music do YOU listen to? I suspect Bjork, The Yeah YEah YEahs and TV on the Radio. Schmuck. Get the fuck out of the BV metal threads for good and do us all a fucking favor.

damn it is so sad to see grace leave, shes fuckn awesome n a great person, and who fuckn cares if she is a lady? Well im glad they found another chick vocals to take over, but in all these guys are some of the most amazing people to meet.

Posted by Sierra | October 26, 2012 2:43 PM

When a male vocalist is replaced by another male vocalist, no one cries "What a gimmick! Another Man?!?" The sexism here is hilarious... I am a Transient fan and Krysta Martinez stage presence/voice is brutal and powerful.

I'm so in 11:48s head.

Why so many idiotic and disrespectful comments?

Posted by pling | January 3, 2013 6:43 PM

This band is great live and on record. Haters to the left, as my main man Kenneth Parcells would say.

Posted by Gnagen | January 21, 2013 3:42 PM

krysta is my favorite extreme vocalist.
