Raven Lord are an international band with members being from the United States and various European countries with a musical style I would describe as being heavy/power metal with neo classical elements and this is a review of their 2013 album "Descent To The Underworld" which was released by Mausolem Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with no blast beats being present on this recording, while the keyboards bring a very symphonic and neo classical sound to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine traditional and power metal together to create a sound of their own with a great amount of melody being thrown into t he riffing, while the lead guitars are very old school and melodic sounding heavy/power metal guitar solos and leads that utilize some neo classical elements at times.
Vocals are mostly clean singing heavy/power metal vocals along with some back up shouts, while the lyrics cover dark, historical, mythology and metal themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Raven Lord are a very great sounding hybrid of heavy and power metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Attila The Hun" "Promised Land" "World Out Of Steel" and "Metal Knights". RECOMMENDED BUY.
