Spread the metal:

Ravage, the traditional heavy metal / thrash band from Boston, MA USA has announced 3 live dates to close out the year, including a CD release party at Church in Boston on November 16th with Providence RI metalers Howl. A link to pre-sale tickets is below.

Ravage has entered the band’s home studio in Malden, MA to record 4 new original songs – which will not be immediately available on physical CD, but will rather be released in a special ‘alternative’ format still to be announced soon. Singer Al Ravage explains “Everything is sort of up-in-the-air for us at the moment. We don’t have any commitments to anybody, we are just writing new music and recording and playing sporadic live shows, but we wanted to release some new stuff before the end of the year because we are getting that ‘new music’ itch again. The music ‘industry’ is in such a weird state that I don’t think anyone knows what the immediate future will be. So we are going to try to release this music in a slightly different way. Maybe it’s something that hasn’t necessarily been done before, but it’s not all that radical, and will present the music in an interesting, fan-driven and accessible way. Not that any of that makes sense now, but you’ll see
what I am talking about in a few of weeks when all is revealed. For now, we have a date of November 16th when new music will appear.”

The new musical collection is tentatively entited “15 Years Underground 1996-2011” and will celebrate the band’s 15 years of live music dating back to their first show in November 1996. In addition to the brand new tracks, the musical collection will include never-before-released live bonus tracks and rare demos as well as a tribute cover song for Twisted Tower Dire’s Tony Taylor, who passed away last year.

The tentative track listing is as follows,

1. The Mouth Of Pain
2. Enter The Outbreak
3. Talons In The Heart
4. The Demon Core
5. Ravage Part 1: Damage (re-recording)
6. By My Hand (cover originally performed by Twisted Tower Dire)
7. Bring Down The Hellhammer (live 2011)
8. The King Forgotten (live 2005)
9. Wake The Dead (remaster 2005)
10. Curse Of Heaven (remaster 2003)
11. Black Horizon (demo 1999)
