NEWS: the new Ravencult album available for listening now

The black thrash band Ravencult (Greece; 2001) has a new 2016 album called Force of Profanation on Metal Blade Records. In about 33 minutes these Greeks advance on the front of the classic extreme metal values that they are proposing. Their objective is to make fast, blasting tight-riffed, sharp songs based on the idea that black metal, death metal and thrash metal can unite in one sound because this was once all one musical form and it can be again. It can be classic and Ravencult is it. While some writers and audiences and bands might like to argue about genres, sometimes for the sake and fun of arguing, Ravencult wants the listeners to do one thing: bang your head. It's not rocket science and it's not a debate. It's music. What does it do for you? If you can't get enough metal, Ravencult is your band. Listen below and expect direct impact on first contact!
OFFICIAL: Originating from Athens, Greece, Ravencult was spawned to revive the relentless side of black/thrash metal, bringing forth an unpolished, organic sound to manifest their morbid darkness.
Formed in 2001, they initially unleashed a series of demo/7" EP releases, gaining their ground in the underground scene and developing their sound with a strong mark of mediterranean black metal. In the coming years, they evolved from the traditional black metal approach oftheir 2007 debut album, Temples Of Torment, to the macabre union of pounding black thrash metal found on their sophomore full-length, 2011's Morbid Blood.
After recieving much praise for their releases, the circle of ungodliness marched in 20 european countries over the years, touring and sharing the stage with a wide range of the extreme metal pioneers. Their growing fan base supported the Athenian quartet - all of their releases sold out quickly and were repressed, and their shows turned into a feast of tension and sonic violence. Following this success, in the summer of 2015, Ravencult joined forces with Metal Blade Records for a worldwide deal and the release of their third opus, entitled Force Of Profanation.
Maintaining their straightforward, riff-after-riff rawness, they dive even deeper into the abyss of metal obscurity with Force Of Profanation. Harsher in sound and more determined than ever, Ravencult delivers a merciless barrage of metallic death, combining 80s thrash mayhem with the black metal darkness of the 90s. Force Of Profanation lyrically continues the tradition of their trademark conceptual axis: revenge, horror and mocking of all that is holy.
Ravencult is Greece's morbid metal primitivism; glorifying the mentality of old and conjuring forth the forces of black-thrash, pounding with fanatic devotion.
