Levi had a great idea, make buttons for Raven to wear to work saying "I'm a singer, I'm looking for a drummer for my band." It would be perfect advertising I think!
We're still writing though, and we produced the final copy of our demo and which if my printer was not currently posessed by a Swedish man, I would print out a bio and do up some cd art to send to get duplicated.
We're currently influenced by Therion, who we saw live at the Palladium just a few days ago. Fucking Therion is amazing, they performed so well live, I thought that I was listening to one of their albums at home. We got to speak with the bassist and lead guitarist after the show. Though it was a disapointingly small crowd, the reception that Therion got from them was fucking intense, I think they were surprised. Eighteen years to get to America! I can't beleive it. Some people think that bands like Nightwish and Therion are new because imported music is so limited in the United States and there is virtually no exposure. I feel bad for many in the metal community, especially the mainstream because there is so much more to metal than meets the eye.
