Butcher The Fog (Live)

The Riven is all about raw, soulful, heavy rock with lots of hot sauce and cheap beer. Formed in West London after an alcohol-fueled songwriting session between guitarist Arnau Diaz and bass player Max Ternebring, they were soon to be accompanied by Charlotta Ekebergh on vocals and Olof Axegard on drums.

With a love for bands like Grand Funk Railroad and Deep Purple in common and now a sound that competes with Blues Pills, Kadavar a touch of the 'classic rock' of Vintage Caravan' a debut EP was done by JB Pilon at his studio Buffalo Studios in East London in November 2016.

'Ain't No Doctor' as featured by Sludgelord recently is a readymade blue-rock corker and the band have teamed up with Metal Underground to reveal "Killer on the Loose". The track is taken from the band's forthcoming debut EP Blackbird which will be released on April 14th 2017.

Lorena and Yanni - they may be in two different countries but when they come together as a power duo, something especially rocking happens. Blistering guitar-work and ferocious drum-pounding rock through riffs recalling 60's psychedelia, 70's Acid heavy rock, and post-punk hardcore. Then throw into the mix Lorena ethereal, other-worldly 60's pop infused vocal melodies, you have something unique in London currently.
They've already recorded an EP with London's 'noise-guru' producer extraordinaire, Wayne Adams (Bear Bites Horse Studio - Bad Guys, Vodun, ShitWife, Ex People etc) and are currently completing the follow up. Unmissable heaviousity.
