Belorussian black metal act Raven Throne signed on with Non Serviam Records for the release of the new album "I Miortvym Snicca Zolak," which is set to drop on May 2nd.
Emerging from the ancient city Polotsk in 2004, Raven Throne released four previous albums and a EP. The short lived first line-up collapsed after a few shows, but guitarist Chernotur (aka Dzianis Lukianovich, Thy Wings) kept the flame alive with War Head, who joined the band as a bass player in 2005. Encountering several lineup changes, the main core of the band was formed with the addition of Chernotur and War Head. During 2005 and 2006, Raven Throne was just a studio project until Ingwar Winterheart (aka Galdor) joined the band. The first records were made at that time. Until 2011, Raven Throne was without a drummer and the band utilized a drum machine for the first three releases. In 2014, the band became more active on the live performance front, playing small and big festivals/gigs on regular basis. Current drummer Green Skin joined the band in 2015. The band has since shared stages with some prestigious local and international bands, including legendary Polish death metal troop Vader. The band's last album "By the Path of the Forgotten" was released in 2016 via Possession Productions. In April 2016, a new line-up was announced with Zergved Hellersatan (ex-Kaira) as the band's new vocalist. Raven Throne then supported Rotting Christ in its Minsk gig during the world tour in December 2017. With the new album "I Miortvym Snicca Zolak," Raven Throne invites you to an odyssey in the splendor of the Slavic nature, which is based on poems from the beginning of the 20th century. The bands from the east Slavic countries can invent the supreme atmosphere that darkens the music with deep melancholy and Raven Throne is the perfect example to illustrate this tendency. Stand by for the album's first single with pre-order links, which will be available very soon! The track listing and cover artwork can be found here:
