MUSIC NEWS: The Raven Age Announce New Album Details & Release ‘Parasite’ Music Video
The Raven Age have announced their new album Blood Omen is set for release on 7th July 2023 via Music For Nations/Sony Music.
Alongside the album announcement, a video for lead single Parasite has been shared. The track features guitars from Andy James of Five Finger Death Punch and vocalist MJ says of Parasite, “There’s the legend about the ravens in the Tower Of London, that if they were ever to leave, the monarchy falls. Without being too political, ‘Parasite’ is hinting at these dark notes of the hierarchy, the bottom feeders that tend to run everything and then screw everything up. Our Raven King, he’s basically ascending to the throne to bring down the monarchy, bring down the establishment, weed out the parasites, as it were.”
MJ continues, “It’s a heavy track. We knew we wanted to come back with a real punch between the eyes. It’s the full introduction to our Raven King, and it touches on elements of everything to come. It really shows where we’re going on this album.”
Blood Omen is available to pre-order now from HERE.
