Raven Lord Announces New Members, Set For Debut Release

Multinational metal act Raven Lord announced the addition of keyboardist Pontus Larsson (Vindictiv/Firecracker) and drummer Henrik Hedman (Celestial Decay/Last Kingdom) to the band. The band is currently adding the finishing touches to the first album, which is expected soon.

The full line-up features:

Csaba Zvekan – Lead Vocals (Emergency/Killing Machine)
Stefan Lindholm – Lead Guitar (Vindictiv/Firecracker)
Jamie Mallender – Bass Guitar
Pontus Larsson – Keyboards (Vindictiv/Firecracker)
Henrik Hedman – Drums (Celestial Decay/Last Kingdom)

Bassist Jamie Mallender commented on the additions and impending debut album: "Make no mistake, we have made an album that’s gonna smack you in the face with both fists! This is the record that has been missing from the Metal scene for far too many years. But, despite the obvious anger and power of this music, there’s a lot of melody and harmony in there and we wanted to bring in a keyboard player that loved Metal, to compliment the melodic side, but not water things down or get too Wakeman on our asses. Meet Pontus Larsson, who has filled this role perfectly, he’s done exactly what we wanted him to and we are absolutely thrilled to have him onboard."

New keyboardist Pontus Larsson commented: "I was in the studio recording an album with Vindictiv when I was asked to join Raven Lord. I was kind of busy, but after I listened to the songs and checked out the band members it only took me 1 second to say yes! I’m proud to be a part of the band! It’s great to play with all these talented musicians. See ya out there! Rock on! The Lord of keys!"

Vocalist Csaba Zvekan had this to say about new drummer Henrik Hedman: "Henrik Hedman’s future is pretty clear he will be a big player in the music industry. We are fortunate to have him on board with Raven Lord!"

Henrik Hedman is pretty excited about joining the band: "I feel a great honor and exaltation at having been invited to the Raven Lord family. My fellow musicians are all wonderful people, extremely talented in their art and the creativity is overwhelming! No bullshit, this is an old dream come true! The Raven has spread its wings, and it’s heading your way! The Raven Lord of Thunder."
