Ravens Creed are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of crust, thrash and death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Ravens Krieg" which was released by Xtreem Music.
A very fast and brutal crust/grind sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats and old school death metal growls and you can also hear a lot of thrash influences in the bands musical style as well as traces of d beat and the music is very heavily rooted in the mid 90's.
Morbid sounding melodies can be heard in some of t he guitar riffing and most of the tracks are very short in length except for the last track which is 13 minutes long and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and there is only a brief use of guitar solos and leads and the whole album remains very heavy from beginning to ending of the recoridng.
Ravens Creed plays a musical style that goes back to the 80's era's of crust, thrash and death metal and mixes them together with a touch of early grindcore to create a very heavy recording, the production sounds very old school yet heavy at the same time while the lyrics cover violent and angry themes.
In my opinion Ravens Creed are a very great sounding mixture of crust, thrash and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Palmer The Hammer" "Victory In Defeat" "Bitten by Witch Fever" and "While You Were Sleeping". 8 out of 10.
