Ravencult Signs With Metal Blade

It is with great pleasure that Metal Blade announces the signing of Greek black metallers Ravencult!

The band comments on the signing: "Ravencult is proud to join forces with legendary Metal Blade Records for a worldwide deal. We are honored that our upcoming third full length album in 2016 will be added to a glorious back catalogue that includes masters like Slayer, King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, Cirith Ungol, Immolation, Bolt Thrower amongst others.

"Those who are familiar with us know our driving force has always been a deep devotion to real, straightforward riff-based metal, defending the sound of Old and the mentality that follows. Not only this remains the case, but shall be also enforced as we consider this a new channel for us to spread our aural primitivism."
