Raven LordDescent To The Underworld” review at Heavy Metal About.com USA

Though Descent To The Underworld is their debut album, Raven Lord identify their peers as Dio, Black Sabbath, Yngwie Malmsteen and Judas Priest. The songs themselves reach for a sense of grandness, hitting all the major, traditional heavy metal notes. Raven Lord hit all the hot buttons and strike all the right chords, but working so closely within an established genre they are also enslaved to it.

What made their influences truly revolutionary instead of merely good was their innovation; in adhering to deeply established aesthetics. Raven Lord allow their slavish devotion to tie them down, and relegates them to paying tribute rather than being worshiped. Rating: 3.5/5.0

    This is a kickass album, gives me goosebumps everytime I play it , the songs are very nicely arranged and has indeed all the right ingredients, all instruments are transparant in the mix and it has a powerfull drive of the rythem section, both guitars are wel balanced in the songs and keys are present were needed. Csaba’s vocalcords are incredibel and nicely mixed with a little delay and/or reverb at some points nothing over the top. I really recommend this album to every neoclassical power/heavymetalfan!
