"Featuring very rich and diverse compositions that are both engaging and truly bombastic,
“Beyond the Walls of Death” is one clear candidate for best Symphonic Metal album of 2016.
Perfectly mixed and brilliantly produced, this album sounds amazing and truly
showcases Ravenia’s musical talents.
If you like Symphonic/Melodic Metal, this is one album that you can’t miss.."
Ravenia is a Finnish Epic Film score Metal band founded in December 2013
by singer Armi Päivinen and guitarist Samuli Reinikainen.
The band combines epic film score with metal like it has never been done before,
creating a path between massive orchestrations and the aggression of metal
that leads to an epic journey beyond this world.
After the first, two track EP ”Wingless” was released in January 2014,
the band decided to take the music from the more traditional symphonic metal
to something bigger.
The composing process for the debut album ”Beyond The Walls of Death”
started in the spring of 2014. The album was recorded at Lunamy Creations Studio
between November 2014-June 2015. ”Beyond The Walls of Death” was mixed
by Nino Laurenne at Sonic Pump Studios and mastered at Chartmakers by Svante Forsbäck.
The music video of the first single "We All died For Honor" was released in March 2016.
The debut album "Beyond The Walls Of Death" was released April 29th via
Inner Wound Recordings.
