Editorial Reviews

According to the pages of the various Heavy Metal outlets, the labels legendary , innovative , true originals as well as f**k!ng crazy!! have been rightfully pinned upon Raven over the years. The unique personality, power and humor of the three band members have always shone through...the crazed vocals and bass playing of John Gallagher, the full frontal guitar assault of brother Mark Gallagher and the punishing polyrhythmic pounding of drummer Joe Hasselvander all combine to form a sonic battering ram unique in rock!

From the well documented early days as NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) frontrunners, their albums Rock Until You Drop , Wiped Out and All For One virtually inventing both the speed metal & power metal genres. During the trailblazing USA tours of the 80 s/early 90 s when a grunge obsessed media wrote off so many acts, Raven has consistently proved to be survivors par excellence and, in a genre of grim imitation, shown that they are the real thing . Where so many of their contemporaries have either faded creatively or become parodies of themselves, Raven have consistently pushed the envelope while retaining their unique sound and attack, both in the studio and in their true element; the stage!

Following through a forced layoff through half of the last decade due to Mark Gallagher s long recuperation from a serious accident, the band have fought back with a number of European festival appearances, a UK tour in 2008 and a triumphant jaunt in Japan in 2009. And now, the band unleashes the best album they ve done in many years, Walk Through The Fire . This, quite simply, is the real deal; the right songs, the right sound, and the right feel. Guaranteed to rip yer head off!

You always wonder if a veteran metal band will meet expectations on a new album.

What they, and I suspect others have forgotten, is that the much vaunted first three albums, all had catchy, well written songs.

John even hits some high notes like before, his vocals are simply awesome, the guitars crush and the drums are heavy.

An absolutely amazing return-to-form for the Godfathers of Thrash. Although I've dutifully bought every album over the years, even I have to admit the last few, even the pairing with Michael Wagner just weren't quite up-to-par. Production has sounded not only a bit amaturish, but also pretty dated. Mark..please beef up those guitars! I would cry in frustration. A little bottom end..some distortion..y'know?!

Well, I don't know what brand of coffee they switched-to, but Walk Through Fire is the best album since "Excess". No question. The guitars are heavier, the tempos more varied, the kick drums hammer, and all the songs sound different! Sometimes I've been of the opinion that the boys took so much heat for "The Pack Is Back" that they went too far the other way, and stopped even trying to write catchy hooks. What they, and I suspect others have forgotten, is that the much vaunted first three albums, all had catchy, well written songs. Heavy...fast...raw, sure...but still catchy. Walk Through Fire is a return to that ideal mix of heavy, intense and melodic.

Trust me folks, as soon as the first track comes roaring out of your speakers, that band you loved so much in '83 will remind you it hasn't gone anywhere. Welcome back Raven!

You always wonder if a veteran metal band will meet expectations on a new album. More often than not, they don't. The new stuff always seems to be missing something. It just doesn't grab you like the older material did. Well, I'm happy to report that's not a problem here. On Walk Through Fire, Raven serves up a magnificent blend of classic hard rock and heavy metal that manages to be both catchy and headbanging. If at any point in your life you liked Raven, this is more of the music that you liked. It's the maniacal, over-the-top, heavy, fun, ambitious rock that made Raven a crowd favorite back in the day.

As I write this, Amazon shows no track listing, so I'll give it here:

1. Intro
2. Against The Grain
3. Breaking You Down
4. Under Your Radar
5. Walk Through Fire
6. Bulldozer
7. Long Day's Journey
8. Trainwreck
9. Grip
10. Running Around In Circles
11. Hard Road
12. Armageddon
13. Attitude
14. Necessary Evil (Bonus track - Japan Only)
15. Space Station #5 (Cover Of The Montrose Classic!)

The opener, Against The Grain, is dynamite. Think "Speed of the Reflex" meets "Faster than the Speed of the Light." It's a furious, hair-raising anthem. Other standout songs include Breaking You Down, the title track, Bulldozer (with a bass solo!), and Attitude. But they're all good, especially the cover of Space Station #5. They have that same NWOBHM sound that we all went crazy for back in the 80s. Raven know what the fans want and they come through big time.

This is currently being sold only in Japan. I bought mine from cdJapan. But it's cheaper there ($40) than the $80 currently being asked for on Amazon by resellers. If you can get it, I strongly suggest picking up a first print edition.

Raven's new album WALK THROUGH FIRE, is a call to arms to all who LIVE METAL, this album is ALL KILLER, and NO FILLER, this good as it gets.
From the first chords of AGAINST THE GRAIN, to the title track WALK THROUGH FIRE, Raven's fierce riffs and John Gallengher's Signature Scream
never let up, to my personal favorites BULLDOZER & LONG DAY JOURNEY, that breathes nothing but pure metal heaviness. This band, from what
I read, went through alot of personal times the last ten years, but THE SOUND AND FURY of this album shows no signs of weakness, This album
proves that RAVEN are far from over, and ready to burn, all non believers of metal, and make them themselves heard. Other tracks like Trainwreck,
GRIP, and RUNNING IN CIRCLES, are more favorites on this album that will grow on metal fans alike, Plus the cover of Montrose "Space Station #5"
is an added bonus, this U.S. Release from Metal Blade Records (God Bless Em') has two bonus track of old raven favorites. I dare you to listen
and judge for your self, it anit slipknot, or lamb of god, BUT JUST A SLAB OF PURE HONEST RAGING METAL that will make all metal listeners of today,
realize how great this band is! Personally I think this album is the next best release this year, next to MEGADETH'S ENDGAME. ENJOY

I will not go into song by song detail but if you liked Raven before you will love them now. This is up there with Rock Until You Drop and Wiped Out. They have brought the N.W.O.B.H.M. into 2010 and released a pure heavy metal onslaught. John even hits some high notes like before, his vocals are simply awesome, the guitars crush and the drums are heavy. The thing is, this does not sound dated one bit. And just think of these killer releases lately: Krokus:Hoodoo, Ratt:Infestation, Over Kill:Ironbound, Armored Saint: La Raza, Scorpions:Sting In The Tail, Judas Priest: British Steel 3 cd set coming up, it seems like we are back in the 80's which couldn't be better for music. Please buy "Walk Through Fire", if I was rich I would personally guarantee you your money back if you don't like it. It is that good.
