Been on the lookout for a new metal band to rock your face off? Well, allow us to introduce Ravenscroft.
Been a while since we heard a good old fashioned metal band playing power ballad style riffs and solos with that smooth velvety vocal layer over the top.
We've been checking out a few tracks from their upcoming EP "Rebel" which is due for release in March.
My Dearest One is a super power ballad, the likes you'd only get on a Dad Rocks album, a Top Gun soundtrack or in the awesome Ultimate Power nights we frequent way too often in London! Any fan of Aerosmith, Whitesnake or Foreigner will enjoy this one and definitely one we'll be playing in the car on the drive home from work!
The Chase is more what we'd expect from a hard rock band! Actually a nice blend of some older styles merged with more modern metal bands like Tool, Drowning Pool and bands of a similar "hold up your hand and make the metal horns sign" elk. It's also got a few, dare I say it, Nickelback similarities! We love Nickelback by the way, so it's intended to be a compliment. Really riffy, and impossible not to tap your feet along to! There's also a sick new video for The Chase which you can see below!
Just from the two tracks, it's clear that this is going to be an all round win for you metal-heads out there.
Really looking forward to the release and sure we'll be hearing a lot more from Ravenscroft!
