RAVAGE, the traditional heavy metal act with thrash influences from Boston MA has posted a new lyric video for the song “Turn The Screw” (link below). The track is the first single from the band’s forthcoming “Return Of The Spectral Rider” album which will be released by the band’s own imprint, Society For World Wide Ravage Recordings on May 26th. The offering is a complete re-recording of the band’s album “Spectral Rider” which was given a limited release by Germany’ Karthago Records in 2005. The band made the album available for digital pre-order last Friday and the track “Turn The Screw” is available now for download and streaming. The album will be offered on limited edition CD and Vinyl formats in addition to digital.
Singer Al Ravage commented, “We really appreciate the support we’ve received so far on this project. We’ve wanted to have a better presentation of these songs for many years and so it’s great to finally be getting this out there, but this is also the first time we have tried releasing a full-length album ourselves without any label support – so we sort of need all the help we can get in order to be heard. We recorded everything ourselves in our own studio so we got a very raw, live sound, but it is also sounding the way we alway wanted it to sound with crazy amounts of guitars and extended solos relentless kick drums and just everything over the top.”
The album features artwork by TIM JACOBUS (known for artwork on the R.L. STINE’S GOOSEBUMPS and FEAR STREET series of horror novels) and guest appearances from former Ravage members and local band friends. The recording was mastered by PETER RUTCHO (VOMITRON, REVOCATION) who had produced the band’s last album “The End Of Tomorrow” which was released by Metalblade Records in 2009.
