Formerly known as Solgrav. The story so far... Solgrav -era:
Auringon hauta evolved from the ruins of the previous crappy black-/thrash-/death metal project in late 2001. Founding members were Janne Väätäinen (guitar, vocals) and Sakari Harju (guitar). Auringon hauta was one of the options for the name, but instead of that original Finnish title, band decided that the Swedish/Norwegian equivalent, Solgrav, sounded better (for some unknown reason). So the name Solgrav was finally chosen. The name comes from a finnish/estonian legend and means "The grave of the sun".
