The recently forged South Wales metal three-piece, BackIVBlood, is laceratingly sharp in their debut single, Cuts. With elements of Pantera, Drowning Pool and Static X all legible in the adrenalized off-kilter ride through their progressive furore, it’s impossible not to get sucked into their grungy alt-metal antagonistically cathartic antics.
The caustically sharp vocals rail across the consistently evolving instrumentals that lustfully flirt with nu-metal in the rhythm section, stylise the ferocity with dynamic hard rock guitar licks and add nuanced layers of industrial metal to the fresh production, which unravels as an amalgam you’ve never tested the capacity of your neck with before.
Based on this exceptionally promising debut alone, the juggernautical powerhouse can count on me to be at the front row on their future tour dates.
Ravenwood released their unifying Industrial-infused Hard Rock hit “We’re All in This Together” on March 26th. It’s probably the most inspiring Rock hit I’ve heard in 2020. They obliterated the illusion that Rock lyrics need to be steeped in nihilism and anger to be ‘cool’.
Existentialism has been even more attractive than ever in recent months; it has become an act of rebellion to refuse to fall in a despondent line. We’re All in This Together is the perfect example of that. The last thing we need right now is Rock artists finding edgy ways to tell us the world sucks. I live in hope that Ravenwood will start a trend.
Any fans of Powerman 5000, Rob Zombie, Static-X, Spineshank, Drowning Pool, Hed PE and Orgy will definitely want We’re All in This Together in their ears.
