RAVENOUS WILL BE RELEASING NEW ALBUM IN OCTOBER

Canada's RAVENOUS will be releasing their new album "Hubris" due out October 22nd via Feast Beast Records (NA/EU) / Spiritual Beast (Asia). 

The album was produced by Ravenous with mixing and mastering done by Fredrik Nordström (In Flames, Opeth, Firewind) along with album guests Vincent 'Jake' Jones of Aether Realm, Heinrich Yoshio of Aether Realm, Mathias Blad of Falconer, Nina Osegueda of A Sound of Thunder, The Dread Crew of Oddwood (Full Band).

This will be the second full-length release, following 2019's "Eat the Fallen", and 2017's "Eternal Hunger" EP. Working collaboratively, so that the strengths of each musician can stand out and compliment the others, Ravenous have grown from doing basic fist-pumping heavy metal songs into writing complex, dense, and multilayered dark symphonic power metal anthems. The band doesn't just caw about hunger, they take lyrical inspiration from personal experiences, books, movies, games, (especially Magic: the Gathering), classic poetry, folklore, and historical events. They explain the album in their own words:

"Lyrically, the album tells 10 stories from various sources all surrounding Hubris, the notion of arrogance and the hunger for power, resulting in the demise of the story's main characters – beneath the surface, hidden messages are scattered throughout various lyrical lines that pertain to the band's real-life experiences. Musically, the album is the marriage of European Anthemic Power Metal and American Speed Metal, with a penchant for speed and aggression accentuating the dynamics of the music." – Ravenous
