RAVEN LORD Announces New Guitarist‏

Multinational heavy metal weights RAVEN LORD have announced the addition of guitarist George Karafotis (Vermillion Days, Operation X) to the group’s ranks.

George Karafotis comes from Thessaloniki, Greece. Born in March 1993, he started taking guitar lessons at the age of 11 by guitarmaster Laki Ragazas (Devil’s Train, Mystic Prophecy).The band states, “We just started working with George and things are running smooth. He is a team player and definitely fits the bill for RAVEN LORD; this guy got music and metal in his blood“.

 

There will be even more information about George the coming weeks in the new band member profile sections on our official website.

RAVEN LORD are:

Csaba Zvekan (KILLING MACHINE, SARDONYX, EMERGENCY) – Vocals
Stefan Lindholm (VINDICTIV) – Lead Guitar
George Karafotis (VERMILLION DAYS, OPERATION X) – Guitar
Jamie Mallender (TONY MARTIN) – Bass
Henrik Hedman (CELESTIAL DECAY, LAST KINGDOM) – Drums
Pontus Larsson (VINDICTIV, FIRECRACKER) – Keyboards

RAVEN LORD’s debut album “Descent To The Underworld” was recently mixed by Fredrik Nordström (At The Gates, Arch Enemy, Nightrage, In Flames, Dream Evil and Opeth) of Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden and mastered by Maor Applebaum (Sepultura, Yngwie Malmsteen, Halford, Adrenaline Mob) at Maor Applebaum Mastering in Los Angeles, California, USA.

RAVEN LORD is a sextet of quality musicians with backgrounds steeped in heavy metal history. Unashamedly wearing their heavy metal roots on their leather studded sleeves, RAVEN LORD combine the classic metal feel of the past with a modern edge of the present. Thunderous bass lines, pounding drums with razor sharp riffs blend with distinct heavy, melodic vocals to create powerful and memorable songs. The music that RAVEN LORD brings to you simply stuns – no pretensions – just one hell of a metal entertainment.

With the album in the pipeline, the band is already attracting attention from labels and heavyweight producers who are all eager to get involved. RAVEN LORD are priming themselves to deliver the most metallic carnage across the globe.

PUMP ink deal with ROCK N GROWL MANAGEMENT

PUMP, the German heavy rockers featuring ex-BRAINSTORM singer Marcus Jürgens, have inked a worldwide management deal with ROCK N GROWL MANAGEMENT.

PUMP are working on their fourth record with the working title “Waiting For The Rapture” to be released in later 2012.

PUMP is a band with a solid foundation and real Rock-N-Roll blood runnin’ down their veins. Five guys who where only born to do one thing, rock the world! So get ready to rock! Welcome to the world of PUMP!

PUMP is:

Marcus Jürgens – Vocals (Brainstorm, Kashmyr)
Marcel “Selly” Bernhardt – Guitars (Tales Of Sorrow, Unfroynd)
Michael Vetter – Bass (Watch Me Bleed, Chinchilla, Outrage, Unfroynd)
Axel “Aki” Reissmann – Guitars (Downspirit, Hazy Shade)
Andreas Minich – Drums (Unfroynd)

PUMP was formed in February 2002 by a group of talented, hard-working musicians and have released 3 full-lenght albums. Tired of being told what type of music they should play, PUMP decided to go against the pervasive Grunge/Nu-Metal grain to play the hard rock music they love in the vain of Skid Row, Tesla, Whitesnake, Aerosmith and Dokken. Their defiance has paid off. After only a short time, they are taking hard rock and metal to a new generation. PUMP’s current line-up is led by vocalist Marcus Jürgens, whose raw vocal ability contributes to the band’s distinctive sound. The guitar team of Marcel “Selly” Bernhardt and Aki Reissmann each bring his own unique guitar style to this hard-driving mix: bluesy, yet melodic with a heavy twist. Bassist Michael Vetter and drummer Andreas Minich provide the solid, rhythmic foundation on which the music is built. PUMP has what it takes to bring hard rock to a scene hungry for music that is loud, heavy, and straight from the gut. The music is about good times, bad times, sex, booze and lots of life stories, all wrapped up into high-energy Rock-N-Roll music. It’s pure, not pretend, not faked or forced. It’s just simple, but PUMP has something special, a gift, the passion, the drive, the ability to make it happen. It’s time to stand up and salute the next generation of Rock-N-Roll music.

PUMP share the stages and played festivals in the past: Rock For One World 2012, Alice Cooper, Rock Of Ages Festival, Warmbronner Open Air, House of Lords, On Tour with U.F.O 2009, Air Axes Festival, Dokken, Harem Scarem, Crystal Ball, Shakra, Pretty Maids, Helloween, Primal Fear, Axel Rudi Pell Tour 2004, Building a Force – Metal Festival, Tattoo-Fun & Relax 2004, Queensryche, U.D.O., United Forces Of Rock Festival, Metal-Inside Festival, Mystic Prophecy, Vengeance, Angel Days Festival, Freedom Call, Domain, Pink Cream 69, Human Zoo, China, Dark Sky, Foreigner, Gotthard, Golden Earring, Suzi Quatro, Axxis, Kissin Dynamite, etc.
