Icon34 Raven Vandelle

For those of you who enjoy discovering new bands, I highly recommend an up and coming British outfit by the name of
Raven Vandelle. There is a GH connection (of course)! They feature Glenn's former Euro tour drummer, Matt Goom, on drums.

It's quite an impressive line up...aside from Matt, there is bass player JIMI JIMMI (The Quireboys) , guitarist NIK CRUTCHLEY (Spike/ Phil Mogg) and the unknown vocal talents of TAYLOR!

The band are currently in the studio recording their debut EP due to be released in June 2009. They make their live debut at Birmingham Academy on May 29th.

Other live dates currently scheduled include:

May 29th O2 BAR ACADEMY - Birmingham
May 30th THE ASYLUM-CLIVE AID - Birmingham
June 5th YARDBIRDS - Grimsby
June 6th THE WHARF 10 - Walsall

To keep up to date on the band and to hear some demo tracks go to www.myspace.com/ravenvandelle

The band's debut album is available from this link (yes, official link despite eBay)...

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Raven-Vandelle-Debut-6trk-CD-EP-500-copies-only

Quote:
Here is the debut cd from Raven Vandelle, Replay Records are proud to be able to be an exclusive retailer of this up and coming great rock bands debut CD.

Raven Vandelle are - Taylor (vocals/guitar), Nicko C ( Lead Guitar), Jimi Jimmi (Quireboys) (Bass), Matt Goom (Glenn Hughes) (Drums).

The tracks are - Pray, Dare To Try, Memory, Only Way To Learn, Always Ends The Same, Price I Pay.

Raven Vandelle are built around a solid core of Midlands rock heritage and the lineage for their material ultimately draws its closest connections from those roots. Influences like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, and Slade are all factors that contribute to the band's creative forces as well as other artists and bands from a wide spectrum of genres from across the globe.

Dave Taylor on Vocals/Guitar, Jimi Jimmi on Bass, Nik Crutchley on Lead Guitar and Matt Goom on Drums create the unmistakably heavy but melodic sounds of Raven Vandelle.

Thundering Bass lines and Blistering Drums create a stunning rhythm section, which is then fused with Roaring Rhythms and Live Wire Guitar solos to compliment a truely soulful vocal with a Rodgers-esque gravel.
Songs with all the ingredients of fetching melodies, intense lyrics and powerful music create "Sing Along" anthemic rock in the Raven Vandelle manner.

The CD is limited to 500 copies worldwide get yours now as they are selling fast!!

Got my copy in the mail today. It looks and sounds great. Such an improvement from the original demos that were on their MySpace page.

Highly recommended

Just noticed on their MySpace page they're booked at festival in Telfs, Austria on June 5th, 2010.

Not much detail, but something you might want to investigate further, perhaps Medusa could get added to the same bill

Got it, love it - great stuff!

If you're into serious rock music you should get this while it's still available. It's an excellent blend of good old rock with a modern sound.
A little less compression on the final mastering would have been more of my preference, but that's the way things are being produced these days.

Thanks for the heads up with the show next year, David, will look into that!

Cheers,
Christian
