Ravenous was formed in Southampton in early 2008 when (bassist) Leon Maidment Millar joined an old school friend (lead guitar/vocals) Dave Game and band mates (drummer) Rich Giles,(rhythm) Dave Foster in performing covers of the Thrash/Groove metal genre with only one original song named Ravenous!
After much indecision it was decided that Ravenous would be the most fitting name for the new direction of the band and the craving need to break the fashionable trends in metal and return to its rawer roots with more lyrical structure and 'lyrical' lyrics.
Ravenous performs live with original sets and are always well received. With the exception of the introduction of rhythm player Adam Robbins, Ravenous continues on the same path with more and more original material and an ever increasing appetite for anthemic and meaningful composition.
Ravenous released their debut album "We Are Become Death" on Coffee Jingle Records in Feb 2013 to widespread critical acclaim and featuring the progressive track 'Easter Island'. While based around more popular movements of the Metal genre, 'Easter Island' attempts to bring more meaningful and lyrical composition back to the genre.
