Prepare yourself for a metal rampage the likes of
which you haven’t enjoyed in many a year as New Wave of British Heavy Metal stalwarts RAVEN
deliver the electric mayhem of All Hell’s Breaking Loose, their 15th studio album, set for release
June 30th on Silver Lining Music.

The Newcastle pioneers, formed by the Gallagher brothers (bassist/vocalist John and guitarist
Mark) and rounded out by drummer extraordinaire Mike Heller have emerged from Heller’s own

Heaven And Heller Studios in Los Angeles with 10 crisp, visceral metal classics, each fused with
riffs, twists, turns, chaos and more hooks than all the Hellraiser movies combined (think
hyperbole, turnitUP and find out for yourself)!

Among the standouts are lead single “Go For The Gold” with the redline pushed hard by a
cavalcade of riffs and furious, percussive madness, yet behind it all a melodic journey that makes
it multidimensional skullcrushing.

Go For The Gold’” is our first single as it really represents the new album mission statement…
100% full on RAVEN lunacy!!!!” enthuses John Gallagher. If you’ve got an initial great riff, you
just build from it,” explains John, you try not to milk it to death. You want a good structure. You
want a good verse with hooks, a good prechorus with hooks, a great chorus, and then you want
little left turns here and there to spice it up. Otherwise it can sound boring. And if you have too
many left turns then it turns into jazz fusion, so it’s a funny line you gotta dance on to have
structure but also the chaos part as well.

Watch/Listen to “Go For The Gold
Title track “All Hell’s Breaking Loose” twists and turns with accents and flavours buried inside the
chaos. Meanwhile Surf The Tsunami sees Heller gatecrash your eardrums with a furious flurry
of his own, before some supreme twister riffs bring on the full metal chaos; Turn Of The Screw
bounces on the upbeats before smashing you with a thunderous chorus; The Far Side” has as
classic a metal riff as you’ll hear in 2023; Desperate Measures” is pure ’81saturated tales of
hardship and despair, if you ever wondered what RAVEN at the Marquee were like on a sweaty
metal night in ’83; Edge of A Nightmare” is your portal to paradise, thundering as hard as the
opener Medieval”.

What RAVEN have delivered with All Hell’s Breaking Loose is permission for everyone to
remember exactly what it’s like to lose yourself in the healing aural waters of supreme heavy
metal music, resplendent in sweatsoaked denim and leather.

You got three guys with very strong, passionate, opinions,” offers Mark, “and when those are
brought together, it’s a case of ‘iron sharpens iron.’”

We’re very hard on ourselves,” adds John, “it had to be all killer, no filler. Absolutely every single
part of every song had to make sense, had to mean something, and had to be there for a purpose.”

And All Hell’s Breaking Loose makes it clear that RAVEN aren’t messing around in that regard.
