With his debut album “In Our Blood” from his solo project BELLS AND RAVENS, former Contracrash guitarist Matt Carviero brings fresh blood to the Symphonic Metal scene. With an excellent sound and the combination of Classic and Progressive Metal elements, he covers the whole range of feelings between wild Metal rage and epically scored tales since 2018. Besides five bombastic original compositions, BELLS AND RAVENS also deliver three spectacular Metal arrangements of world-famous classical symphonies, which would impress Beethoven and Yngwie Malmsteen equally. The album, impressively sung by We Are Legend frontman Selin Schönbeck, will be released on March 13th, 2020, via Dr. Music Records and especially fans of bands such as Kamelot, Mystic Prophecy and Savatage can look forward to a virtuoso Power Metal symphony.
Previously, on January 22nd, 2020, the ballad “Until I Leave” will be released as the next single, along with a lyric video, in which Carviero expresses his feelings for his deceased father, accompanied by acoustic guitars. Those who don’t want to wait that long, are highly recommended to watch the already released lyric video for “The Fire Inside”:
Originally started as a side project, BELLS AND RAVENS quickly developed to become the main focus of virtuoso mastermind Matt Carviero. He composes and produces the songs alone and Selin Schönbecks gives them a fascinating dynamic with his remarkable voice. In his project, Matt Carviero combines his influences from traditional Metal with symphonic and sometimes even electronic sounds to a detailed, emotionally profound and unique soundscape. With “In Our Blood” he is now composing his first symphony, in which BELLS AND RAVENS pay homage to both the highs and lows of human existence.
