CD Review: RAVENEYE – Nova (2016 Frontiers Music s.r.l)

raveneyeRavenEye – Nova (2016 Frontiers Music s.r.l)

The latest release by UK masters RavenEye breaks the mold with Nova. Shedding a refreshing sound to the current stale vibe out there.

Guess you can say this band and release has that sound that crosses a Soundgarden meets Crobot with a Sabbathy feel to it.  Great groove, great lyrics, vocally a masterpiece.  Track after track is completely different but yet is harmoniously in sinc.

Nova will make you happy you purchased this release by RavenEye. This is easy a 9.5 / 10

Do yourself a favor and check them out.

About RavenEye

Since forming in 2014, the band has toured globally, supporting bands such as The Darkness, Slash, Deep Purple, Halestorm and Blues Pills. The band has headlined their own tours through Europe and America and have performed at major international rock festivals such as Download Festival (UK), Hellfest Open Air Festival (France), Azkena Rock Festival ARF (Spain), Rock For People (OFFICIAL) (Czech Republic), Louder Than Life (U.S.), and Aftershock Festival (U.S.), and will also perform at this year’s Maximus Festival in Brazil and Argentina this September.  Their incendiary live shows have captivated crowds and put them on the map as a ‘must see live’ band.

Warren Riker (Lauryn Hill, Michael Jackson, Down, Anders Osborne), who engineered the debut EP, took over as producer to capture the band’s true sonic identity on NOVA. Together, Oli Brown, Aussie bassist Aaron Spiers and renowned drummer Gunnar Olsen worked at Water Music in Hoboken, New Jersey for 25 days and created an eleven-track album that pushed the band beyond its boundaries and into new ground. From the hard hitting riffs of “Inside”, “Madeline” and “Hero” to the raw sounds of “Wanna Feel You” and “Oh My Love’ to the stark reality of life and death in “Eternity”, NOVA takes you on a journey of defiance, pain, hate, death and, yes, love. See below for links to two music video premieres of “Hero” and “Inside”:

Power-rock trio RavenEye was formed by multi-award winning guitarist/singer Oli Brown along with drummer Kev Hickman and bassist Aaron Spiers. Having already toured Spain, France and Italy, RavenEye has been slamming audiences with their signature heavy riffs and incendiary live show. Whether it be straddling a bass drum high into the night or jumping into a raucous crowd, RavenEye is a high-energy rock act not to be missed.

Oli Brown has spent 10 years touring the world under his own name and in that time released 4 albums and has established himself as one of the most formidable guitarists/front men in the UK scene. Kev Hickman has also seen his fair share of international touring, and with an unforgettable stage presence he has developed an intense, hi-octane performance. Aaron Spiers tore into the UK in 2012 and since then has established himself as a force to be reckoned with on stage, he’s also released several solo albums and written scores for orchestras in Australia.

After meeting and creating music together, they all knew that this would be their musical future, here begins RavenEye.

Thanks for taking a few seconds to read this. I have been with MTRS since its inception. Love doing the live broadcasts and interviewing my hero's and other very interesting people over the decade of this. MTR is my therapy. Have always looked at this site and station as being part of the solution for the artists. We have NEVER pushed our own agenda, it has always been in the name of the bands, the music and the direction in which we have an influence in helping. We are part of the solution. Its simple! We are here to help bands and entertainers succeed. We go way far beyond of what is expected of a station/PR piece.
