RAVEN LORD

Descent To The Underworld

(Mausoleum Records)

Reviewed by : Kelley Simms
Rating : 7.0

Six-headed heavy metal beast RAVEN LORD’s debut studio release, Descent To The Underworld, contains neo-classical influences on its 11 tracks. Classic metal elements in the likes of DIO, RAINBOW and SABBATH also are on tap here. The band boasts the high-piercing banshee wails and metallic snarls of vocalist Csaba Zvekan (KILLING MACHINE) and the blazing guitar solos of six-string shredder extraordinaire, Joe Stump (HOLY HELL/REIGN OF TERROR). The rhythm section is solid (Larry Paterson’s double bass rudiments kill), and the keyboard melodies help the overall feeling and atmosphere of the songs without overpowering or stepping into European power metal territory. As good as the musicianship is, it becomes a bit of the same ol’ same ol’. There’s not much variation or memorable musical transitions, almost every song has the same kind of slow to mid-paced tempo and almost every guitar solo has the same Malmsteen neo-classical technique. Although the songs are good in their own rite, nothing really stands out as truly memorable. Descent To The Underworld will appeal to die-hard Yngwie and neo-classical metal fans only.
