5 Star Grave is an Italian heavy metal band which formed in 2005 and currently signed to Massacre Records. As of 2012, they have released two albums, one EP and one single.


5 Star Grave was founded by Thierry Bertone and Gabriele Lingua in 2005. In a couple of months Alessandro Blengino, Hervè De Zulian, Claudio Ravinale (Disarmonia Mundi) and Andrea Minolfi joined the band.
The first name of the band was Ground Zero and with this name an EP was recorded in 2006: The ZERO Hour.
In 2007 the band changed the name and became 5 Star Grave and in 2008 the band recorded Corpse Breed Syndrome, their first full-length album (self produced).[1]
In 2010 the band paid homage to The Ramones, releasing for free a version of their all time classic Pet Sematary.
In the beginning of 2011 the band recorded their second full length album, named Drugstore Hell. The album has been mixed by Tobias Lindell and mastered by Dragan Tanaskovic at the Bohus Sound Studios in Gotheburg, Sweden.
In October 2011 the band were signed by Massacre Records[2] and the release date for Drugstore Hell has been set to May 25, 2012.
The album combines "exteme vocal aggression with catchy light-hearted melodies, a pounding rhythm section mixed with industrial keyboards and a sharp guitar work, all merged together in a boiling high-octane cauldron".[3]
