Raven Lord TV – Episode 01 – Introduction to the band and record:
Details of live dates, including some high-profile shows for the Summer, are expected to be announced soon.
RAVEN LORD just recently added Joe Stump (HolyHell, Reign of Terror) as their lead guitarist to their ranks. The band is in the process of securing a new record deal with a view to a release towards the end of the year.
RAVEN LORD recently tapped Fredrik Nordström of Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden to mix their album. Nordström is a well-known producer and sound engineer who has previously worked with such acts as AT THE GATES, ARCH ENEMY, NIGHTRAGE, IN FLAMES, DREAM EVIL and OPETH. The CD mixdown took place the end of August 2012. It was then mastered by Maor Appelbaum who also did work for bands like Sepultura, Halford, Yngwie Malmsteen, Angra and Dokken.
Unashamedly wearing their heavy metal roots on their leather-studded sleeves, RAVEN LORD “combine the classic metal feel of the past with the fresh aggression of the present,” according to a press release. “Thunderous bass lines, pounding drums and explosive riffs blend with distinct heavy, melodic vocals to create driving and memorable songs.”
