Ravenage were founded in 2007 by vocalist Glyn the Heralder, as a folky, melodic death metal band. In 2008, the band released their debut EP ‘Hardrada’s Fall’ and toured the UK extensively, supporting the likes of Waylander and Negura Bunget, and playing well-received sets on the Scuzz Stage at Bloodstock Open Air and Gathering Of The Clans Festival. In 2009, Ravenage supported Skyclad at the East Riding Rock Festival, and in 2010 they headlined the first annual Pagan Pride festival in Nottingham and were joined on stage by folk metal legend Martin Walkyier for a rendition of Spinning Jenny. They have also had several continental appearances, including Cork Winterfest in Ireland, and Berco Fest in Portugal, alongside bands such as Skyforger and Grand Magus.
In 2011, Ravenage signed to Warhorns Records and released their long-awaited album ‘Fresh From Fields Of Victory’ to outstanding reviews, and toured the UK with Nothgard and Celtachor. This year the band have recently gone down a storm at the Jorvik Viking Festival supporting Tyr to a sold out audience. Ravenage are currently in the process of writing their second full-length album.
