THE RAVENS (Malaysia)
Storm Jam
Demo 2000

The first band from Malaysia that use laser color copier to make their demo cover. Quite cool design and nice graphic manipulation made by Sinistrous Night Production. This is the band second release if I am not mistaken. 4 tracks of German thrash metal without vocal. Now that's strange. No vocals? The music is undoubtedly headbang-able but voice is needed to spice up the music. The sound is raw and recorded live without bass. Sounds like a rehearsal tape for me but still entertaining. At least they are lot better than other bands here. Also a Sodom cover "Tombstone" available here. A complete line-up is needed for them to go further in the scene.
