Ben Ward may have jumped ship to focus on ORANGE GOBLIN but as proven on last year vibrant EP ‘Nestless & Wild’ on DOOMENTIA RAVENS CREED have lost none of their earth-shattering power! As a matter of fact still featuring a cast of A-class metal veterans – Fraser Craske from SABBAT on bass Jay Graham from SKYCLAD on drums and Steve Watson from cult death-metal squad DESCERATOR on six-strings attack – but now with the addition of Al Osta on vocals they way sound even more pissed off than before on their sophomore release. As they say the proof is in the pudding. And with a title as simple and in-your-face as ‘The Power’ they’re in for the kill with thirteen new blasts of proto thrash/death the old-school. Thirteen nuclear nuggets recorded in Notthingham earlier this year that rarely go beyond the two minutes mark and don’t even bother beating around the bush. Illustrated once again by the striking of faithful DOOMENTIA collaborator Andrei Bouzikov this is one album to get violent to while being damn drunk as a skunk….
