raven black night



Metal Blade Records announces the signing of epic Heavy Metallers Raven Black Night from down under.

Raven Black Night formed in 1999 in Adelaide, Australia to start their campaign to bring their traditional Metal sound to a worldwide audience. After numerous gigs throughout their home country they recorded and released their debut album, 'Choose The Dark', in 2005.

'Choose The Dark' garnered praise throughout Australia and Europe, culminating into an invitation in 2007 to perform at the 10th annual Headbangers Open Air in Germany. Several years of touring and festival appearances were to follow where Raven Black Night played the Hard and Heavy summer nights, the Hamburg Ballroom, and more dates throughout Australia.

Raven Black Night main men Jim and Rino are prepared to take the Raven Black Night's sound of true Metal/doom to a global audience. A new partnership with Metal Blade Records and a new album, which is now being written, will firmly Raven Black Night on the world map of true Heavy Metal.

Comments Raven Black Night singer/guitarist Jim Petkoff: "As founders or Raven black night me and my Metal brother Rino Amorino are proud and excited to sign with Metal Blade, a label with a rich history and much respected in the Metal world. We believe Metal Blade will help bring Raven Black Night to the Metal masses and look forward to a great journey together."

Raven Black Night is:

Jim Petkoff, the white knight [guitar/vox]
Rino Amoriono, the raven [guitar]
Chris Dorian [bass]
Christiain Jones [drums]
Big Tom [bass] * only live

Raven Black Night's riffs are made of true steel made by their bare hands!

Watch out for Raven Black Night's new album in late 2012!


WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
