|NWOBHM legends RAVEN are that rare thing in music, true originals you can cut these guys with a razor and they will bleed true heavy metal – a more intense live band does not exist on this planet! Thus will be the case when RAVEN returns to the road in North America supporting their latest release ExtermiNation. The tour kicks off August 27th in Baltimore, MD and runs through September 9th in Vienna, VA. A complete list of dates can be found below.
ExtermiNation combines the melody/chaos/musicianship/lunacy that defines the band with songs that are simply the best they have done in decades. Rivaling the “holy trinity” of those early albums, and again working with the engineering metal mastermind who is Kevin 131 (Walk Through Fire) – the band have taken their game to the next level…this may well be their 41st anniversary but these guys are only just getting started!
