Ravened from Jönköping, Sweden, is all about really tight modern metal merged with influences from the past. Bands like Pantera, Bloodbath, Lamb of God, and Metallica has inspired Ravened’s music.
The debut album “From the Depths” by Ravened is an experience of five young guys, pouring 100% of their hearts into 12 heavy tracks, which would attract both listeners interested in the technical aspect of music, as well as anyone who just loves great metal.
Ravened delivers heavy riffs, well-written lyrics, and a hunger and passion like few other bands in their age. The band delivers energetic shows, comfortable dressed, but very engaged in the audience.
The band was formed in 2018, and has just started their journey towards an exciting future. This is where it all starts!
From The Depths is recorded in Lund, produced by Ulf Blomberg (HoboRec) and distributed by JONO & Sound Pollution.
A second album has been recorded during 2022 by Fredrik Nordström at studio Fredman and the plans are many to support this album-release.
Line-up: Isac Wendel: Vocals Olle Liljegren: Guitars Willy Eriksson: Guitars Simon Sahlqvist: Bass Oliwer Svensson: Drums
