Rats & Ravens is set in mid-13th Century Eastern Europe and weaves an eerie and epic tale of witchery throughout its 10 tracks.
“The story is about a witch who desires children of her own and steals them from the villages nearby,” vocalist Aleister Sinn explains. “When she kills them, she traps the ravens who come for their souls. She keeps the children on this earth, reanimates their corpses with rats and calls them ‘Lilium.’”
“Lilium,” the first single from the blackened thrash band’s Rats & Ravens, is an in-depth looks at these reanimated creatures. Watch the lyric video for “Lilium” at https://youtu.be/fL3HaTOdP1E.
Led by guitarist/vocalist Aleister Sinn (the dark persona of George Anderson), FROM HELL released their debut album, Ascent from Hell, in 2014, featuring an all-star lineup of bassist Steve Smyth (Forbidden, Nevermore, Testament), drummer Paul Bostaph (Slayer, Testament) and bassist Damien Sisson (Death Angel). For Rats & Ravens, Sinn and Smyth were joined by bassist Stephen Paul Goodwin (Vicious Rumors) and drummer Wes Anderson (Blind Illusion, Les Claypool). Drawing on their varied musical backgrounds, the new members added even more depth to the band’s new songs.
Rats & Ravens was produced by Greg Wilkinson (High on Fire, Necrot, Autopsy) and mastered by Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More, Annihilator, Cynic).
