Heavy Metal raw and passionate, the way it's meant to be! To pinpoint the exact moment RAVENSIRE started is an impossible task! Nuno Mordred (guitars) had been busy creating riffs and musical patterns for quite some time when the idea to join ranks with Rick (bass guitar) came over a few beers. But, unfortunately, conflicting schedules and turmoil in their personal lives brought things to a halt for a while. A few years later, Nuno Mordred was having some fun jamming with F (drums) who was playing guitar back then. Although these sessions were purely for fun (and had nothing to do with RAVENSIRE), Nuno Mordred talked with F about his and Rick's ideas for a band and what they were aiming for. F got so interested in the concept that he decided to start playing drums from scratch! So, with the spinal cord of RAVENSIRE already formed, it was time to develop consistency and get the beast rolling. It took some weeks to consolidate the backbone of the songs and to have fun while playing pure HEAVY METAL! During this time, Ze Gomes (vocals) and Z? RockHard (guitar) started hanging out at the rehearsals, and It didn't take long to realize that they were the ideal partners to finish RAVENSIRE's line up. Influenced by legends like IRON MAIDEN, old MANOWAR, MERCYFUL FATE, OMEN, BROCAS HELM, ALKATEYA, HEAVY LOAD (among many others) and contemporary heroes like SLOUGH FEG, DOOMSWORD, SKULLVIEW, THE LAMP OF THOTH, to name a few, RAVENSIRE aims to deliver its Heavy Metal raw and passionate, the way it's meant to be! The debut EP 'Iron Will' was released in October 2012 by A Forja Records and has received great reviews on several publications. In the meantime, in November 2012, due to personal reasons, Z? Gomes left the band. After a few tests, the band decided to continue as a 4 piece, with Rick handling both the vocals and the bass guitar. And with this lineup, the band entered Iron Pit studio to record the debut full album "We March Forward" that'll be released next Autumn on Eat Metal Records! Expect 9 songs of pure, unadulterated Heavy Metal.
