RAVEN X – Cleveland Ohio’s RAVEN X is a Metal band that is so loaded with (multi) Extreme and Melodic Metal potency that it’s downright dizzying to my Metal senses!

I’ve chosen the killer cut Angel Of The Night, from RAVEN X as:

Stone’s Metal Pick Of The Day!

Angel Of The Night is from the RAVEN X debut album Essence Without Light which was released on March 13th, 2013.

Outshine - Prelude To Descent - promo cover pic!

OUTSHINE – After 6 appreciated US Tours and the last one in April 2013, with +100 gigs in Scandinavia and the US, airtime in Swedish Radio and various endorsements deals OUTSHINE now release their new album Prelude To Descent with new singer Micke Holm. The album will be out June 7th through Outshine’s own label Dead Tree Music and Soundpollution Distribution in Sweden, Europe and USA.

The addition of a new singer, that has a darker and heavier approach to the OUTSHINE songs and vibe, has taken the band to the next level and the essence of the band and album is really finally coming out. A video for the song “I Was Nothing” can be viewed here:

The new album was recorded by Svein Jensen at Grand Recordings (M.A.N, Transport League, Hide The Knives, Sister Sin, Troublemakers, Outshine), produced by Jimmy Norberg and Svein Jensen and mastered by Göran Finnberg (Meshuggah, The Haunted, Opeth, Dark Tranquillity, In Flames).

Outshine - band pic - promo banner - 2013 - new album

“OUTSHINE, with a melancholic and dark approach to their music, is heading in a heavier direction, more straight up and with bulldozer-heavy sound. The band has influences from the gothic metal to melodic rock always with a twist. OUTSHINE´s sound has been recognized as unique and with a “live” feeling. Beautiful and honest, dark and evil, tough and hard…OUTSHINE “Prelude To Descent”.

To support the album release the band will go on their 6th US tour and also hit the road for a number of concerts in Sweden.
