On October 13, 2017, American alt-metal artist Melissa VanFleet released her highly anticipated and hauntingly compelling new single, “Raven,” available now at all major digital retailers.
The single was recorded in February 2017 at BRX Studio in Milan with the team behind Italian gothic metal band Lacuna Coil’s critically acclaimed 2016 album Delirium – bassist/producer Marco “Maki” Coti-Zelati with engineers Marco Barusso (Thirty Seconds To Mars, Coldplay), Dario Valentini and Marco D’Agostino – and features guest musician Douglas Blair (W.A.S.P.) on lead guitar.
Blending atmospherically dark orchestration with heavy, melodic guitars and Coti-Zelati’s trademark bass tone, the soaring “Raven” showcases VanFleet’s emotionally intense signature vocal delivery and powerful songwriting ability, establishing her as an artist to watch.
