  1. I don’t know much about them or their history
    I started watching some live clips and listened to a few studio tracks , so far haven’t found anything I liked , its just middle of the road hard rock for me , not awful not great- they obviously never broke through to mainstream success , but they are doing what they love and they have enthusiastic fans, you have to respect that ~

    1. Robert, check out their 1st two albums…..either “Rock Until You Drop” or “Wiped Out”. I think they are both excellent albums.

      Raven were one of the first NWOBHM bands I really got into. I first heard their song “Inquisitor” on the Lead Weight compilation album, and I was hooked. They have fast tempo songs, which was always a “plus” for me. I’ve seen the twice before live…..once in Los Angeles with Metallica (Kill ‘Em All tour) as the opening band and again in San Diego with Anthrax (Fistful of Meta tour) as the opening band.
