Italian Alt-Metal Band RAVENSCRY Reveals Weekly Series of Lyric Videos
“The Entertainer” Available Today via YouTube New Album, “100,” Out May 15
Italian alternative metal band RAVENSCRY has revealed plans to release new lyric videos for tracks from their upcoming album, 100, each Friday until the album’s release on May 15, beginning this week with “The Entertainer.”
“At this particular time, we felt the need to give to our fans the opportunity to listen to some songs of the new album before the actual release,” says vocalist Giulia Stefani. “We thought, ‘Why don’t we release a single every week?!’ So, this is it and we hope you’ll enjoy it. This is our way to stay with you at home!”
The video for “The Entertainer” – a song inspired by entertainers who keep audiences smiling while silently struggling and fighting personal demons – can be viewed at https://youtu.be/41FhzbVAar0.
“Sometimes we think those kind people are a reflection of the entire society,” the band says. “How many times do we smile and laugh, hiding our deepest feelings? We often ask ourselves this question.”
“The Entertainer” features RAVENSCRY’s trademark mix of energy and grit with melody and melancholy. This song also features contributions from friend and former band member Paul Raimondi, who still collaborates with RAVENCSRY on songwriting.
RAVENSCRY released “Maybe,” the first official single and video from 100, last month. Watch “Maybe” here: https://youtu.be/ROgLlZSBfzE.
The female-fronted, melodic metal band is launching back onto the global metal scene with the highly anticipated 100. Featuring dramatically soaring vocals, bone-shaking rhythms and dark songwriting, for nearly a decade this fierce group has been hooking millions of listeners worldwide with their infectious anthems. Their first album in three years, 100 attests to RAVENSCRY’s bold return. With more energy, more melody and even smarter lyrics, 100 stays true to the core of RAVENSCRY’s sound while remaining accessible enough to hook even more new listeners. Sincere, intelligent and brutally honest — the album sums up the human experience to a tee, from epic highs to soul-crushing lows.
100 was produced by RAVENSCRY, mixed by Roberto Laghi (In Flames, Hardcore Superstar) and mastered by Dragan Tanasković (In Flames, Dark Tranquillity). The album features artwork by Spanish artist Mario “Aégis” S. Nevado.

RAVENSCRY first made a mark on the world in 2011 with their debut album, One Way Out, and began steadily grinding their way up the ranks of the global metal scene. In 2014, the band spearheaded a campaign to raise awareness about violence against women with the release of The Attraction of Opposites and the single “Alive,” released on International Women’s Day. 2017 saw the release of the concept album The Invisible, which told a complex and mystifying coming of age tale, followed by numerous European festival appearances and tours with Angra and Geoff Tate’s Operation: Mindcrime.
