Biography

The Raven Age have shown they are the perfect ambassadors for a new generation of British metal acts. Founded in 2009 by George Harris (son of Iron Maiden chief Steve Harris) and Dan Wright, this melodic metal band stands for contemporary and melodic metal. They released their self-titled debut EP in 2014, landing them support slots for the likes of Mastodon and Tremonti. In 2016 they got to open for Iron Maiden on their Book of Souls world tour. Last year they released their full-length debut, ‘Darkness Will Rise’: melodic, epic and dynamic but at times also fast-paced and abusively heavy. They razed the festival arena to the ground at GMM2016 and 2017 and this year is bound to bring more of the same! Fans of Bullet for My Valentine, Parkway Drive and Killswitch Engage will eat this shit up!   (#GMM18)
