Grave started in 1986 under the name Corpse and changed it to Grave in 1988. They recorded various demos during 1986–1991 and including some singles and EPs as well. Their debut full-length album Into the Grave was released in 1991, which has become a death metal classic over the years.[citation needed] The release led to a European and American tour.

In 1992, the band released their second album You'll Never See..., which was a continuation of the style played on their debut. However, bassist Jonas Torndal, left the band as a result of his increasing dislike for touring. After unsuccessfully trying to find a replacement, the group made a decision to become a trio, as guitarist Jörgen Sandström switched to bass.[1] A European tour followed with compatriots Dismember and headliner Morbid Angel.

Soulless - their third album, released in 1994 - showed a somewhat different style, blending some more experimentation and industrial tones into the death metal of the previous album. Sandström departed 1996 and Lindgren took over the vocals on their fourth album Hating Life. This album progressed further into the style started on Soulless. Another European and American tour followed, which resulted in the live album Extremely Rotten Live. Thereafter, the band more or less split up.

1999, was the first year the members rejoined and started rehearsing, nevertheless the band took it slow. Ultimately this led to a warm-up European tour and a new album in 2002. Back from the Grave which was a return to the style played on their second album, You'll Never See..., with minimal influence from the Soulless. As a bonus a CD was added with three demo recordings.

The 2004 album Fiendish Regression saw the departure of drummer Paulsson, who was replaced by Coercion drummer Ekegren. This album showcased more aggressive and generally somewhat faster songs. Touring followed through Europe in support of Cryptopsy.

Two years later, in 2006 As Rapture Comes was released further increasing the overall speed and aggression. Noteworthy is the inclusion of the Alice in Chains cover of "Them Bones". In support of the album the band will tour with Dismember, Vital Remains, Demiricous, and Withered through the US and Canada. In November 2006 they toured Europe as part of the Masters of Death tour, with Unleashed, Dismember, Entombed and Exterminator. In September, Grave are due to embark on a tour with Nile for their album Ithyphallic, in Europe.

In 2008 the band returned with a new full-length album called Dominion VIII. It was one step more back to the old school death metal roots. The next album, Burial Ground, continued the same style. In 2010, Fredrik Isaksson left the lineup and was replaced by Dismember's Tobias Cristiansson.
