More reviewsThis album lacks nothing - it sounds like it must sound. For me only one thing is certain: My Own Grave will always be associated with "Necrology" - my personal album of the year on the market. A required purchase for Death fans!
There isn't a weak moment on the disc. It's a short but oh-so sweet lethal dose of some of the best and most brutal Melodic Death Metal ever recorded."
Metal Psaltery"The close to abnormal musical skills of this Sundsvall-combo manifests itself in a relentless tempo and creates a symbios between raw, primitive harmonies, and raffinated, innovative arrangements."
SlaveState Magazine"I don't want to pick a favorite track, and can't. If I'm putting this album on it's going from track 1 to 11 with no skipping."
Global Domination"Necrology is a long-finger salute to everything and everyone. It's a manifest written in blood."
Dagbladet"Real heavy artillery to take off the wallpaper but in a more subtle style than Demonical or Vomitory, Necrology should charm both fans of fast, brutal death metal and those who prefer mid-tempo death metal"

07.21.02MY OWN GRAVE FORCED TO CANCEL SOLID METALIt is with great regrets we are hereby forced to cancel the show on Friday at Solid Metal. It is the first time in our six years that we cancel a show but since two of the members (one of them the drummer) have high fever and influenza we see no other option. We appologize to the organizers and whoever was planning on coming to see us and hope that those people will still come and see us in Gothenburg in April instead.

06.21.11MY OWN GRAVE SIGNS WITH PULVERISED RECORDS
06.14.11THE NEW MY OWN GRAVE LOGOYes, as you can see we've changed our logo yet again but this time we promise it's for good. Why did we change it? Because we were sick of the old one in general and thought it did no longer capture the musical expression we now represent. The new logo will replace the old one on all new MOG-related stuff like the EP and merchandaise. It will also appear on the upcoming re-release of Unleash.
