HEAVY SOUND FESTIVAL – HISTORY:

The Heavy Sound Festival was a Heavy Metal/Hard Rock Festival back in the ’80s. The first edition took place in Bruges (Belgium), in 1983. The 2nd & 3rd moved to Poperinge for ’84 and ’85.

Bands – 1st edition:
Ostrogoth, Killer, Golden Earring, Viva, Baron Rojo, Warning, Uriah heep, Gary Moore…

Bands 2nd edition:
Motorhead, Twisted Sister, Metallica, H-bomb, Faithful Breath, Mercyful Fate, Lita Ford

Bands 3rd edition:
Pretty Maids, Slayer, UFO, Lee Aaron, Tokyo Blade, Warlock, Crossfire…

The festival was all about giving new upcoming bands the chance to be heard and some of them made it pretty far!

In 1985 there were some complaints about vandalism, never knew if this was true or just a rumor. Anyhow, the organizers thought it was better to just leave it as it was and stopped organizing the event.

It’s official that the heavy sound is totally back, with a new organization and the crew of the previous editions!!

Raven - Rock Until You Drop - A Long Days Journey - promo cover pic

RAVEN – All For One – One For all… Solid As A Rock With Swords In The Air – The undisputed kings of Athletic Rock are back! Harder and stronger than ever. With their new DVD Rock Until You Drop – A Long Day’s Journey they show all non believers what real Metal is about. Screaming guitar riffs, pumping bass lines, exploding drums and a voice which is not from this earth!

It`s now 32 years ago since their first album “Rock Until You Drop” was released and during this time Raven definitely influenced a lot of bands. Who played their first tour at the east coast in the USA as support to Raven?: Metallica. Who played their first gigs ever as support to Raven?: Anthrax. The list goes on and on… ask Mille of Kreator or Tom Angelripper of Sodom..both will say that Raven was a big influence on their musical careers.

____________________________________

Rock Until You Drop / A Long Day’s Journey releases as a 2 disc DVD, in Germany, on June 21st, 2013. Other countries release dates will vary.

Over three decades of RAVEN Metal are covered on this double DVD! Concert, studio, backstage and interview footage are all included in this RAVEN DVD gem!

Rock Until You Drop – A Long Day’s Journey will be released via SPV / Steamhammer.

RAVEN – RETURNS WITH A METAL DROP KICK ON “WALK THROUGH FIRE”

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, heavy metal bands, Metal, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on April 29, 2010 by Metal Odyssey

RAVEN – This pioneering band representing the NWOBHM has returned with a very Metal memorable album of 16 songs – Walk Through Fire, (released on March 30, 2010, on Metal Blade Records). Raven has contributed in a huge way, in fueling my Metal exhilaration thus far, this year. Raven provides all the Old School, Heavy Metal that I could have hoped for on Walk Through Fire. Plus, it sounds like Raven really had a Metal ball recording this new album, the energy and excitement of three veteran Metalhead musicians seems to jump out at me. Maybe it’s just my personal Metal interpretation here, still, Raven sounds like they certainly are back in Metal form to my ears.

Just as the 2010 album releases of Krokus, Scorpions, Armored Saintand RATT have blown this lifelong Metalhead into a dizzying Metal tailspin of joy… Raven has done likewise with their new album! Sure, it has been about a decade since Raven has put out an album, (One For All in 2000), only the fact remains… quality Metal is not manufactured like dixie cups… quantity does not hold an upper hand to quality in my Metal world. Walk Through Fire is an album of straight forward, in your face, Heavy Metal that isn’t hiding any surprises of experimentation here… it’s Old School Metal done right.

Having 16 songs to listen to, on this new Raven album, is a fine gesture of Metal giving to the fans. The song Bulldozer, with its infectiously heavy riffs has been super glued into my Metal mind since my first listen. Trainwreck and Grip are two more standout songs that will infiltrate your senses and make you a believer that Raven isn’t about musical intricacies… they are about Metal. Live At The Inferno and Rock Until You Drop are both live songs… and these songs heaviness scream everything great about Raven. Mark Gallagher shreds it on guitar during Rock Until You Drop, his solo tears it apart!

John Gallagher on lead vocals and bass hasn’t lost an ounce of Metal muscle, his vocal highs are simply awesome. Raven covers the Montrose classic – Space Station #5 from their 1973 debut album. In my Metal opinion, John Gallagher does one hell of great job singing this song. He actually sounds a sliver like Sammy Hagar on Space Station #5 too… really. This was a really cool, Hard Rock classic for Raven to cover.

Joe Hasselvander on drums is his usual, explicitly great self on Walk Through Fire. If I was to start a Metal band from scratch and I could choose that one drummer… it would be Joe Hasselvander. This is a drummer that comes across as playing by pure Metal instinct. From the opening Intro to the last two live tracks and everything in-between… this is meat and potatoes Heavy Metal from Raven. Don’t be that Metal dude or dudette who needs to “think about” buying this new Raven album. Buy or at least get your ears into Walk Through Fire soon… for Raven is F’n BACK!

John Gallagher – vocals, bass guitars

Mark Gallagher – guitars
