Italian melodic-metallers RAVENSCRY have released their new lyric video and single for ‘The Door Inside‘, the track is taken from the forthcoming studio album ‘100‘, which will be out on May 15th, 2020.
RAVENSCRY say: "The Door Inside is a combination of both the "classic" and the renewed Ravenscry sound: the mighty 8-strings riffs and chords give more space to melodic synth themes and even catchier vocals: it's like exploring new shores while keeping the same bold attitude. In a similar way you can find a sort of dichotomy also in the lyrics, where personal research can deepen one of our greatest inner struggles: the never-ending “fight” between instinct and rationality. This conflict becomes “louder” when we have to make choices, and yet we don’t face them in the same battle field every time: sometimes we want to be more rational, sometimes we wish to credit our sensations, sometimes we just have to find the right balance in order to take the best decision. But how can we do it? Everyone finds their answers, although we all know that there’s only one thing we have to leave outside the door: fear."
The video was produced by Martin Vrigsjö Staflin. Cover design by Mario Sánchez Nevado (Ashent, Native Construct).
RAVENSCRY is dramatically soaring vocals, bone-shaking rhythms and darkly real songwriting.

You may remember RAVENSCRY from the 2010’s, when they made their mark on the world with a number of smash singles and albums. Armed with infectious pop-fueled hooks and a devoted fanbase; their beautifully melodic and larger than life take on the metal genre, has been hooking millions of listeners for nearly a decade now. “100” is the name of the new album, and fans of the band may find themselves a little surprised when they hear the record. The album comes three years after the highly ambitious, “The Invisible”, a concept album that tells a complex and mystifying tale about coming of age. The band have decided to go back into the essence of what made them such a beloved melodic-metal act to start with. Just this time. Going even more into their melodic side — as to create catchy anthems that can be chanted in arenas for years to come. Sincere, intelligent and brutally honest — the album sums up the human experience to a tee, from the epic highs to the soul-crushing lows.
This isn’t the first time that RAVENSCRY have made history with a fresh new sound. Since their debut album “One Way Out” (2011), they have been steadily grinding their way up the ranks of the global metal scene. Even working with a number of top-tier producers and sound-engineers; who have crafted the sounds of icons like Alice Cooper, Steve Vai, Marilyn Manson, In Flames and Megadeth. “The Attraction of Opposites” (2014) was their second album, and saw the band spearhead a campaign to raise awareness about violence against women. The track “Alive” was released on International Women’s Day and continues to stack up streams in the millions on Youtube. They even charted at #31 on Spotify’s metal charts with their track “The Witness”. Then of course in 2017, was the release of their concept album “The Invisible”. Since then they have performed at a number of festivals around Europe and even toured with Angra and Geoff Tate’s Operation: Mindcrime on the Omni World Tour 2018. The band is also endorsed by Hughes & Kettner, Steinberg, Two Notes and Audio-Technica.
