Ravens Creed To Release New EP

British heavy metal outfit Ravens Creed has announced that they are planning to release a new EP, entitled "Black Bullets," as a precursor to their second studio album. A message from the band reads as follows:

"Our good friend Lukas of Doomentia records suggested to us that we do an EP first before recording second album, he's right of course, this is a great way of introducing the new line up, so - five tracks that we have already recorded for our second album (the power that dare not speak its name) will be used for the EP and the six songs we've written for the third LP will replace the ones that will be on the EP. The EP will be called Black Bullets and as mentioned will be out on Doomentia when we've finished fannying around with the artwork, then we'll start recording the second LP (also out on Doomentia)."

Ravens Creed Seeks Permanent Lead Vocalist

British death thrashers Ravens Creed have issued the following update regarding the search for a permanent vocalist:

"Whilst tidying up loose ends on new songs in TENKO, Jay and myself talked about what we were going to do for a vocalist when the next lp is out. We debated back and forth the pros and cons of the sistuation we are in at the moment (for those who are unaware: Ben has left, Iscariah is doing vocals on our next lp and we are still looking for a permanent singer) After much time had passed and our chins were blistered from being stroked, we decided to hold off recording our next lp (A conspiracy of...) until we have found a permanent vocalist, just saves us pissing about after the lp is out really. and we can get back to playing live again (like normal bands!) Jay and myself would like to thank Iscariah for his enthusiasm and being willing to fly to England to do his vocals."

"So............. we are looking for a full time singer, the next lp is pretty much ready to go, over half the songs have lyrics already, if you feel you can do it, contact us through this electronic medium, no experience required! must be able to attend rehearsals in Nottingham twice a month and a deep love of Venom, Celtic Frost, Master and Discharge would be a Brucey bonus."

Ravens Creed Parts Ways With Vocalist

Vocalist Ben Ward of U.K. metal band Ravens Creed has issued the following announcement about stepping down from his position:

"It is with great sadness that I have to report that I am stepping down from my duties as front-man and vocalist for Ravens Creed. It has reached the point that I can no longer give the band the time and energy that it deserves and I feel that by leaving now it will allow Steve, Jay and Frazer the opportunity to get somebody who is as passionate and dedicated to the band as they all are.

"I have had a great 4 years with the band and will leave with a lot of fond memories but right now I believe this is the right thing to do. I wish the band all the success and hope they make me regret this decision!!!! Anybody wishing to step into the vacant position can contact the band via their MySpace page, details about rehearsals etc are all there! Over and out."
