RAVEN LORD’s debut album “Descent To The Underworld” recently mixed by Fredrik Nordström (At The Gates, Arch Enemy, Nightrage, In Flames, Dream Evil and Opeth) of Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden and mastered by Maor Applebaum (Sepultura, Yngwie Malmsteen, Halford, Adrenaline Mob) at Maor Applebaum Mastering in Los Angeles, California, USA.
RAVEN LORD is a six piece band of quality musicians with backgrounds steeped in heavy metal history. Unashamedly wearing their heavy metal roots on their leather studded sleeves, RAVEN LORD combine the classic metal feel of the past with a modern edge of the present. Thunderous bass lines, pounding drums with razor sharp riffs blend with distinct heavy, melodic vocals to create powerful and memorable songs. The music that RAVEN LORD brings to you simply stuns – no pretensions – just hell of a metal entertainment.
With the album in the pipeline, the band is already attracting attention from labels and heavyweight producers who are all eager to get involved. RAVEN LORD are priming themselves to deliver the most metallic carnage across the globe.
