Alcatraz Line up: 2010, 2017
The hyperkinetic trio Raven are true veterans of speed and thrash metal. The group was founded in the late seventies by the brothers Gallagher and built a strong live reputation very quickly thanks to their usually chaotic, sometimes aggressive, but above all energetic music, and for regularly destroying their equipment. Most bands of that generation are only a shadow of their heydays, such is not the case with Raven. Their latest album “Extermination” was perhaps the best they have ever put out, and for those who have seen them, know that next to hysterical vocals, ripping guitar solos with powerful hooks, there’s still room for a furious and overly enthusiastic stage show. This has brought them quite a “Cult” like fan base. Rest assured, Raven will rock, you will drop!
