Swedish retro-influenced Heavy Metal group The Riven have launched ”Peace And Conflict”, the fifth and final single as well as the title track of their second studio album. The track was mixed and mastered by Ola Ersfjord, who is known for his work with Tribulation, Lucifer, and Imperial State Electric.
”Peace and Conflict” moves from psychedelic soundscapes with frontwoman Charlotta‘s vocals in the spotlight into a finale focused on guitar arrangements. The album itself aims for “perfectly straight, sharpshooting heavy rock with big choruses with psychedelic moments”.
The Riven’s second studio album, Peace and Conflict, will be released on vinyl, CD, and digital formats on November 25, 2022 via The Sign Records.
New to this album is the addition of guitarist Joakim Sandegård who together with Arnau Diaz creates a twin guitar sound. On this album we’ll also find Jussi Kalla behind the drums who made his debut with the band with “windbreaker/movin on” released in May 2020.
The Riven previously recorded their nine track, self-titled debut album in Madrid, Spain with Producer Ola Ersfjord (Lucifer, Tribulation, Dead Lord) at Holy Cuervo Studios. It was later released on the first of March 2019 on The Sign Records with a worldwide distribution.
