Boston Massachusetts metalers Ravage are ready to unleash their Metal Blade Records debut, "The End of Tomorrow" on August 18th 2009. Artwork was handled by the famed artist Ed Repka who is known best for his Megadeth covers as well as cover art for Death, Municipal Waste, Toxic Holocaust, and Austrian Death Machine. "The End of Tomorrow" seamlessly intertwines the sounds of New Wave of British Heavy Metal, late 80's American Thrash Metal and late 90's European power metal to showcase the band's signature style. The album is sure to be enjoyed by metal maniacs young and old as it blends the soaring vocal and guitar melodies of Iron Maiden and Helloween with the raw power of thrashers like Testament and Kreator, presented in a crisply modern production-style courtesy of producer Peter Rutcho.

Here's what vocalist Al Ravage has to say; "This album has been a very, very long time in the making and we'd like to thank Metal Blade for giving traditional, no-bullshit, American heavy metal a chance again. Also thanks to Peter Rutcho for his great production work on the album (giving new life and freshness to a classic sound), and Ed Repka (for inviting you all to share a glimpse into Ravage's corner of the singularly demented alternate reality he has created with mere brush strokes). 'The End' is finally near! Get ready to Ravage and we'll see you on tour this fall."


"The End of Tomorrow" [cover art] tracklisting:

01. The Halls of Madness
02. Reign Fall
03. Freedom Fighter
04. Damn Nation
05. The Shredder
06. Into The Shackles

08. The Nightmare's Hold: Part 1
09. Nightcrawler
10. The Nightmare's Hold: Part 2

"The End of Tomorrow" is only the beginning for Ravage, who are only in their mid-20's, despite having played together for over 10 years! Expect to see Ravage's Metal Blade debut, "The End of Tomorrow", to drop August 18th with touring leading up to and throughout the release of the album.

That album cover is definitely old school. It's nice.
