Strong band logo that really set up a pure identity , a cover pretty straight in the face talking to everyone ‘s new generation. “Rebel” the title track is one song that speaks about people and the society that is reflecting what image is giving today. Judging the look of what people given but not reflecting what the person is really inside. A great song with kick ass solos and a really explosive song. The mix is perfect the song are , what else do you need?
Ravenscroft is a modern band with many influences but hard to catch because the songs are just so entertaining and well written they have their own style. Not every songs are in the same mood giving a taint like DNA so you know it ‘s their own but sending different messages. While most bands would have a music style rooted , Ravenscroft has not.
Just check this new video :
You have what they are driving their blood to, exploding with power to kick your ass. The song “Denomination” kick right from the first note, the drums are very present and Pat Magrath has that Chris Kontos play that reminds Machine Head’s ‘Burn my Eyes’ song. Ralph Buso ‘s vocals are powerful with melodies going from Rock to Metal influences giving that special feel to the whole sound, he also sings in other bands such as Hands of Sin and Serpent Underground. Brett Gorke is playing some brilliant solos that will get your mouth down to the floor such he has a style we heard in some of the greatest bands such as Skid Row, Judas Priest…. He also plays in Octane Mob . Devin Baker is one of special piece to the band with raw pounding slapping heavy pitch sound , that sets a hard hitting touch giving more power to the whole.
So here you have a four individuals reunited with skills and years of experience in the music giving us one of the best band to be , the song “Stand Up” is what should be the legion of the Heavy Metal community to blast the world and getting strong. “My Dearest one” has accoustic guitars reminding sometimes Warrant. Six hit single songs making this album a must have for every person who wish to get motivated everyday’s life. Influences are ranging from many years of music styles such as SoundGarden, Alice In Chains, Motley Crue, Disturbed, Metallica… and groovy riffs but mixed with power sound and heaviness that band’s names won’t give you much info. You Have to listen to dig that band now and get driven by their music and never leave.
Playing again and again I just love it, they are thee one band to follow 100/100.
