RAVEN LORD Announces New Drummer

February 23rd, 2013

International metallers RAVEN LORD have announced the addition of current POWER QUEST drummer RICH SMITH to the group’s ranks.

The chance to challenge himself in a different field with RAVEN LORD was an opportunity he did not want to miss. Rich will finish the two shows for POWER QUEST’s farewell tour by the end of May.

Commented Smith: “…I’m delighted to of been offered the throne to drum for RAVEN LORD. I can’t wait to get in the rehearsal room with these guys and hit the road to play some kick ass shows I’d like to thank all the guys in the band and the management for this opportunity…

EX-drummer LARRY PATERSON on his leave:”…It is meant as no disrespect to any of you at all – and I wish great success for everybody. To cut a long story short, things are pretty tough right now as I have another band, a book and a documentary to make. All of this is running on a very tight schedule which WILL definitely get in the way of Raven Lord

Singer and bandleader CSABA ZVEKAN commented “I’m saddened to see Larry go from RAVEN LORD but if dates are clashing there is not much any of us can do. The good thing is me and LARRY PATERSON will continue working on another band project called EXORCISM which is expected to be released in 2014. Well, you know what they say ; the show must go on! And with Summer shows in the pipeline we had to act fast and find another drummer as a permanent solution. RICH SMITH is highly motivated to be the next Lord drummer and with POWER QUEST calling it the quits it was obvious that he was available for grabs. We took the opportunity and welcome RICH SMITH to RAVEN LORD.

The complete RAVEN LORD lineup is:

Csaba Zvekan (Killing Machine) – Vocals
Joe Stump (Holy Hell, Reign of Terror) – Lead Guitar
Jamie Mallender (Tony Martin Band) – Bass

“Jamie Mallender” Jins Raven Lord on bass guitar!

August 21st, 2011

Raven Lord have added Jamie Mallender (Tony Martin Band) to their ranks. Jamie is known for his work with the Tony Martin Band (ex- Black Sabbath) and has toured around the world. He is a recording artist and has plenty records under his belt. Jamie Mallender will be handling the bass guitar duties and completes Raven Lord’s line up.

 

Discussing the latest addition to the ranks of Raven Lord vocalist Csaba Zvekan (Killing Machine, Sardonyx, Emergency) said: “The search is finally over and I’m proud to have Jamie in the band. We clicked right away and were on same page and I knew on the spot that this was our bass player. He is a very skilled player and what a great stage presence he has. We welcome Jamie Mallender to Raven Lord.”

 

On joining Raven Lord bassist Jamie Mallender (Tony Martin Band) had to say: “I’m thrilled to be part of this band. It’s very rare that any new metal music really excites me, you know – I’ve been around a while and I’ve heard it all before – but the recordings Raven Lord sent me really captivated me. I just thought, “I have to be part of this!” Everything from the standard of the songwriting, to the calibre of the musicians involved is rather mindblowing. I’ve been listening to the recordings none stop and I haven’t been this excited about laying down some bass for quite some time. I’m currently working on my parts and will be busy recording them by the time this statement is released. I’m looking forward to a very exciting future with this band. The world needs music like this!”

 

Raven Lord’s music has often been compared to bands like Dio, Yngwie Malmsteen, Black Sabbath and Judas Priest. Preliminary work on a new album has already begun, with various songs at different stages of completion. Two new demo songs ‘End of World’ and ‘Saints & Sinners’ can be heard at www.myspace.com/raven-lord. The band are in the process of securing a new record deal with a view to a release towards the end of this year. Details of live dates, including a tour in two continents with some high profile shows for the summer 2012, are expected to be announced soon.
