Post Reaver (Victoria)
Epic, complex and energetic melodic metal from Vic.

Our myspace has three songs up from the upcoming album: http://www.myspace.com/reaverofficial

I'm just going to paste our bio. Please forgive the substantial amount of cheesiness:

There are certain forces in this world that simply cannot be stopped or contained. From the oblivion offered by a black hole to the cataclysmic destruction of an earthquake, Reaver is one of these forces that steadfastly and outright refuses to be denied. Formed in 2007 in Victoria, British Columbia, Reaver has been biding their time, waiting for the right time to strike and claim what is theirs. With the impending release of their first album, Corvus, the time has finally arrived…

Reaver deal in cutting edge melodic death metal that stands miles above the unsubstantial. Forward thinking and painstakingly crafted songs take the listener on epic audio journeys through countless twists and turns, always pushing forward with a sonic barrage that aims to draw you in, hook you and then go for the throat. Major fluctuations in dynamics/mood, layer upon layer of soaring 7-string guitars, a penchant for groove, vitriolic and devastating screamed vocals and songs that build and grow to massive climaxes are all trademarks of the Reaver sound. After all, variety is the spice of… death.

Years in the making, the soon to be released first Reaver album, “Corvus”, serves up 9 unforgetable songs for your ears to feast on. Recorded and mixed at Prodigal Sound Studios by David Fraelic (Dead Eyes Open) and with stunning artwork crafted by Julie Dillon (http://www.jdillon.net), this is an album that should make any metal fan bang their fucking head and throw the horns.

With the release of this album, Reaver will inevitably be hitting the road in support. Look for us to be shaking the walls of your local metal establishments throughout 2010.

The myspace has been completely reconfigured to coincide with the release of the CD:

http://www.myspace.com/reaverofficial

Also, I know most of you Vancouverites have probably never seen/heard us but if for some reason you would like a copy of our just released CD "Corvus", please send me a PM. It's good shit!

Here is a random pic from the CD release of us doing Monochromatic Stains with Brittney from Unleash the Archers and Mitch from For Your Liberation

Good luck with the show :horns:

I will be at a concert in Seattle that day, but will try to check out Reaver when you come through Vancouver some other time.

No, it is a bar. There aren't too many AA venues unless you head into the burbs.
