RAVENOUS
"WE ARE BECOME DEATH"
COFFEE JINGLE RECORDS

RAVENOUS is a killer Thrash / Groove Metal band hailing from England. The band has
been around since 2008 and "WE ARE BECOME DEATH" is the bands debut release.
The band originally started out doing covers of other Thrash / Groove Metal bands and
eventually wrote their first song which was entitled "Ravenous". As the band got more
experienced and changed their sound slightly they decided to move ahead and create
original music. Since "Ravenous" was the bands first original song they saw it as a fitting
name. Their music definitely pulls influences from the old school genre of Thrash /
Groove Metal. They have that really cool tinged out guitar sound. It goes from crusty
grooved out Thrash to some faster shredding Speed Metal. These guys could really get a
killer circle pit going with each song. The vocals have a gritty almost New York Thrash /
Groove sound that reminded me a lot of Gary Meskil of
PRO-PAIN mixed with Robb
Flynn of
MACHINE HEAD. These guys are a very good band and would have been
really great back in the 90's with all the killer Thrash Metal bands that were getting huge
then. If you dig
SLAYER (and who doesn't), MACHINE HEAD, PRO-PAIN,
PANTERA, LAMB OF GOD, TESTAMENT, MERAUDER
& early PRONG then
you need to get this release now! These guys would be able to play with any of these
bands and hold their own, well maybe not
SLAYER, but who really can, right! It's
SLAYER!!!
