Raven have a history like few other bands, having been a minor player in a couple of metal's major turning points. Formed in 1974, the group was part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. And in 1983, they toured the United States with an unknown band opening for them called Metallica, on their first-ever tour. They've always stayed true to their thrashy, self-proclaimed "athletic rock" sound and just this week released Walk Through Fire (Metal Blade). They will be touring the U.S. in September.
NYC’s BLACK ANVIL let loose ‘Triumvirate’, the follow-up to 2009’s acclaimed ‘Time Insults the Mind’, on the unsuspecting world. ‘Triumvirate’s assault is powerful, primal, and pure; capturing and channeling the spirit of metal’s earliest trailblazers through a 21st century urban hostility. Insidious tracks such as “The Evil of All Roots”, “Scalping”, and “Dead and Left” are as cold and hard as they are hypnotic. ‘Triumvirate’ unquestionably leaves BLACK ANVIL’s enduring, pitch-black mark on the metal world.
