RAVEN BLACK NIGHT formed in 1999 in Adelaide, Australia to start their campaign to bring their traditional metal sound to a worldwide audience. After numerous gigs throughout their home country they recorded and released their debut album Choose The Dark in 2005.
Choose The Dark garnered praise throughout Australia and Europe, culminating into an invitation in 2007 to perform at the 10th annual Headbangers Open Air in Germany. Several years of touring and festival appearances were to follow where RAVEN BLACK NIGHT played the Hard and Heavy summer nights, the Hamburg Ballroom, and more dates throughout Australia.
RAVEN BLACK NIGHT mainmen Jim and Rino are prepared to take the RAVEN BLACK NIGHT’s sound of true metal/doom to a global audience. A new partnership with Metal Blade Records and a new album, which is now being written, will firmly RAVEN BLACK NIGHT on the world map of true heavy metal.
Comments RAVEN BLACK NIGHT singer/guitarist Jim Petkoff: “As founders or Raven black night me and my metal brother Rino Amorino are proud and excited to sign with Metal Blade, a label with a rich history and much respected in the metal world. We believe Metal Blade will help bring Raven Black Night to the metal masses and look forward to a great journey together.”
