As previously reported, British/American metal trio Raven, will be releasing their new album, Metal City, on September 18th through SPV/Steamhammer.

The band has released a video, for their second single, Metal City, which can be seen below.

Raven’s English brothers John (bass, vocals) and Mark Gallagher (guitar) brothers have dedicated the song to their former hometown.

“Newcastle upon Tyne has been referred to as ‘Metal City’ for good reason,” they say. “We come from there for a start. But it’s about a mindset. The people there have a tenacity and an ability to go beyond the limits to get to where they are going.”

    Poor John Gallagher looks like that idiot, Lips, from Anvil.

    I like the two preview songs released from this album. I think the album cover is kinda corny, though.

    Great NWOBHM band….

      John, it’s a “Crazy World” and life is sometimes a “Hard Ride” that moves “Faster than the Speed of Light”, but IMO, your appearance resembles Lips…..the biggest difference is Lips, unlike you, is an idiot (IMO)

      Oh…. it’s me alright!
      Ok…. A passing resemblance… but that’s it !
      Album coming September 18th and I think
      you will love it!!!!!!

      I’ll get your new album. I’m looking forward to new “Firepower’ from Raven! I hope it cuts me like a “Chainsaw” and sends me on a “Hell Patrol”.

      Rock Until You Drop! \m/

    I saw these guys in 1983 with Metallica..I thought they were going to be big …but they got bad advice from their label (like many bands) and moved to a more commercial sound….ala Twisted Sister

      Thanks for the incisive 33 year old update.
      We actually did one rather commercial album…
      Wised up…. and have rocked ever since!
