Intuitively inspired and focused, music industry savvy and dedicated to their success, Ravenscroft is a seasoned foursome of musicians whose individual backgrounds and eclectic educations present handsomely delivered melodic alternative rock. Their music appeals to a broad spectrum of audience. Without being fluffy and poppy, Ravenscroft writes melodic ballads and performs hard stirring grinds of alternative metal riffs breaking their own sound barrier by not being encased in one single style.
If I had to rank 10 bands that I feel are so diverse in their musical style that their music caters to all listeners, Ravenscroft would be among the top. Their music is a perfect escape and release from the mundane existence of everyday life. It isn't all heavy riffs, adrenaline pumping rhythm and enchanting vocals, there are some songs that reveal an almost softer side to these intense group of men. The song that really struck me was one from one of their album that was released back in 2014, called Broken Shadows from their album Cosmic Plan. You can hear the angst in the vocals, which makes you feel this song on a much deeper level; you actually connect to the artists themselves.
With each song, Ravenscroft only proves that a band can get stronger and evolve as the years pass. A lot of bands tend to fizzle out or become softer; they are the opposite. Their sound becomes more refined and a lot more passionate, because if I am to venture a guess, they truly do feel each song they write and most are based upon past experiences or observation. Regardless, we as the listeners get to experience this wild ride alongside them. The other thing I can respect about them is their sound is quite timeless; some people hit the scene hot and before long people have moved on from that genre, but Ravenscroft will be one that can withstand the fickle industry and audiences. It's a sound that if you are a teen or an adult, you will get into it and forget the world around you. A perfect example of this is their song Into The Dark. The vocals are commanding and the rhythm intertwines itself with your soul. Take a listen for yourself and you will hear what I mean.
Into the Dark - Ravenscroft
Recently, Ravenscroft released their latest musical creation called, The Chase, which has been getting rave reviews and loved by music fans worldwide. It has a powerful message that anyone can relate to and once again delivers an intense rhythm and hypnotic melody. As well as solidfying my belief that they only get stronger and better with each new release. The song has the edge you crave of hard rock with that touch of brutality you need of metal. One thing I can safely say about this band, while other bands rise and fall, you can bet that Ravenscroft will be corrupting audiences for years to come, their sound can withstand any passing fad and show the up and coming generations what the real meaning of rock is.
