American post-rock/post-metal band Ravena joins Elusive Sound. Let’s hope for a nice collaboration. Until now, it has only been possible to get Ravena’s music as download on bandcamp. With the signing to Elusive Sound we will see their debut album Laocoön, released on vinyl in 2018. I will look forward to that.
Ravena makes beautiful and ravishing journeys of post-rock, with a slight flavour of post-metal. You can already now listen and buy their full album Laocoön online at bandcamp.
I have earlier reviewed the song Teraphim as part of the Open Language VOL. II post-rock compilation. Ravena ended up with solid 5 stars. Read the full review of Open Language VOL. II – Side A here.
Elusive Sound is a small dedicated Switzerland-based label dedicated to releasing highly conceptual genre defying music, and Ravena is definitely all that. Ravena is cinematic, yet earth rooted, eclectic, intense and ambitious all at once.
Elusive Sound already have other interesting bands on their roster, and with Ravena, the roster just got strengthened a tad more. Elusive Sound is about quality, and every single band on the roster is high quality in my opinion. The label has to this day, focused mostly on post-rock, post-metal, post-black, but have also recently opened their arms towards shoe gaze with the signing of Blankenberge.
If you are not yet familiar with Elusive Sound, I will strongly encourage you to go and check out their website and take a listen to every single band on their roster, you will not be disappointed. Some personal favourites on Elusives roster is, BLAK, Au Revoir and TRNA, but as said, all artists on the roster stands out as excellent bands. Now with Ravena added to the list, both Ravena and Elusive gained even more respect.
