RavenEye – Nova


RavenEye – Nova
Frontiers – 2016
Rock, Hard, Blues, Stoner
Rated: ***

Okay, so what did you think when you heard RavenEye’s debut EP Breaking Out last year? I for one was definitely interested in what they would do next. And so, with their full-sized record Nova we can now find out. It’s without a doubt a wondrous riff explosion, one filled to the absolute brim with riff upon riff, without ever giving a second thought about showing off their obvious technical prowess. We can hear their love for Led Zeppelin and all the trucking road warrior bands like Grand Funk Railroad, Mountain or Humble Pie. There is also some Soundgarden or better yet Audioslave hiding in there. But enough with the name calling, it’s just plain good bluesy hardrock with a southern tingle one moment and a more stonerrock approach the next. And when you have a vocalist/guitarist that has worked with Joe Satriani, Johnny Winter and Jeff Back and the band has already toured with Slash, Deep Purple and Blues Pills, you can count on a power trio that will bring the goodness. Every time again!
