WHEN THE BRITISH/AMERICAN METAL TRIO RAVEN LEFT THE SKRÅEN STAGE AT THE END OF NOVEMBER 2017 AFTER THEIR ACCLAIMED CONCERT IN AALBORG, DENMARK, BROTHERS JOHN (BASS, VOCALS) AND MARK GALLAGHER (GUITAR) ALONG WITH NEW MEMBER MIKE HELLER (DRUMS) DIDN’T FORESEE THEIR SHOW BEING RECORDED FOR POSTERITY. “We were surprised of course, since nobody had informed us of this beforehand”, John Gallagher explains. “We had a flash drive with the recording delivered to us and when we checked it, we realized that – barring some small technical problems – we had a truly magical live recording on our hands. It was a near perfect concert thanks to the great atmosphere inside the hall and our out of control attitude – since, you know, we weren’t aware the show was being recorded.” It’s the unbridled show of a band who has been writing metal history for the last 45 years!
