RAVENCULT Signs With Metal Blade RecordsTuesday, 1st September 2015
Metal Blade announces the signing of Greek black metallers Ravencult.
The band comments on the signing: “Ravencult is proud to join forces with legendary Metal Blade Records for a worldwide deal. We are honoured that our upcoming third full length album in 2016 will be added to a glorious back catalogue that includes masters like Slayer, King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, Cirith Ungol, Immolation, Bolt Thrower amongst others.
“Those who are familiar with us know our driving force has always been a deep devotion to real, straightforward riff-based metal, defending the sound of Old and the mentality that follows. Not only this remains the case, but shall be also enforced as we consider this a new channel for us to spread our aural primitivism.”
Spawned into existence during 2001 to revive a more relentless side of black metal, Ravencult brings forth an unpolished, organic sound to manifest their morbid darkness. Originating from Athens, Greece, they have evolved from a late 80’s/early 90’s black metal approach on their debut album, Temples Of Torment, to a macabre union of pounding black/thrash metal on their sophomore Morbid Blood full-length. Their live appearances are a feast of tension and sonic violence, and they have performed in over 20 countries. Conjuring forth the forces of black thrashing command with fanatic devotion, Ravencult is Greece’s guard of sinister metal.
