"Make no mistake this band are going to blow up in stratospheric proportions" - The Sludgelord
In 2018 The Riven went to Madrid, not to spend time under the Spanish sun but rather curled up in the valved cellar studio at Holy Cuervo Studios. In ten days they powered through the record's nine songs producing an album that in the words of the drummer Olof Axegärd "Is loud, is rock, is soul, and prog, it has it all!". The Riven will be releasing their highly anticipated first full length with The Sign Records in the spring of 2019. Produced by Ola Ersfjord (Lucifer, Primordial, Dead Lord) the album manages to merge the diverse influences of its four members into a solid unit of Rock and Roll, that will leave no one oblivious.
