COUNT RAVEN – ‘The Sixth Storm’ Out for Halloween!

Swedish doom metal icons COUNT RAVEN will release their new full-length LP, The Sixth Storm on October 29, 2021, just in time for Halloween. The album will be released on I Hate Records. You can check out the cover and tracklist along with more album details down below.

From The Press Release

Twelve years might seem like an unusually long time to hibernate. Then again, Sweden’s doom legends COUNT RAVEN is one of those rare few bands with absolutely nothing left to prove.
In their early beginnings, COUNT RAVEN released not one or two but three bonafide doom classics in as many years. Really, either of “Storm Warning” (1990), “Destruction of the Void” (1992) or “High on Infinity” (1993) is as fine an example as you can find of that crushing, Sabbathian traditional doom – which at the time was spearheaded by the Swedes, alongside the bands of the Maryland doom scene.

COUNT RAVEN also solidified their status with one of the most spectacular comeback albums in doom, 2009’s “Mammons War”. With such a track record, it had better be worth it if the raven is to spread its wings and grace gray autumn skies again, right? Despite some personnel changes around guitarist/singer Dan Fondelius, the new full-length “The Sixth Storm” bears all the trademarks of a band that knows exactly what it is and where it comes from. Had COUNT RAVEN not been a band so typically not prone to cliches, “Well worth the wait” would have been an apt album title.

I am a devoted husband and father. I have been a voracious horror fan since the early age of 5 and metal fan since I was 14. I watch all horror films but my great loves are classic horror films: Universal Monsters, Werewolves, Hammer Horror and an all-around affinity for things that go bump in the night! I'm also a huge fan of extreme metal music.
