LA based Alternative Metal Band Raven Black has released the Official Music Video for their single “Twinkle Twinkle Little Scars” off of their debut EP Seven Sins, out NOW via WURMgroup. Directed Josh Apple and filmed by Andrew Spirk of Monoblocstudios.com.

“Twinkle Twinkle Little Scars” is about broken innocence. – Raven

raven black – a visciously sweet metal medley of feminine and masculine power harnessed through a tiny half human | half doll surrounded by her misfits, tossed into a theatrical debauchery of creepy fun and that’s just the beginning.” There is a story here, but you have to take the journey to the 13th hour where these 4 live.

a cunning hybrid femme fatale with playful mischievy, backed up by her twisted gentlemen. Raven black cranks out innocent melody that quickly evolves into wicked cursed screams. You know, blistering and burning your skin with chills and dropping jaws at the powerful vocals coming out of such a tiny stature. Evoked by the ripping guitars and ambient tones of the doctor, low end bass of stiches and thumping double kicks from the demon, muppet, this unique dark carnival of metal taunts your hunger for a new sound.

Their debut EP Seven Sins was recorded in the Wilderness, with Grammy Nominated Producer Ulrich Wild of WurmGroup. The seven song release has garnered loads of buzz and fans demanding more. Taken to the road again after a debut tour with Mushroomhead in October 2016, they will be playing Rock Fest 2017 in Austin, TX March 15-18th and then landing internationally to their adoring fans at the Foco Festival in Mexico with CrazyTown April 2017. It’s been too long since their last visit at Hell & Heaven Festival last July 2016.

The video for the first single “seduced by a disease” can be seen below:

About for all the emptiness

for the all emptiness originally started as an idea by vocalist/composer jonathan kaplan. After viewing Apoptygma Berzerk’s live DVD APBL98 and seeing front man Stephan Groth go into the crowd after a performance and how much their music affected them, it showed how much art can make the world a better place. jonathan took his passion for truth, science, logic, and critical thinking and based their music around those principles.

In 2011 for all the emptiness released their debut album axioms . It was produced by Yone of Decoded Feedback and it served as the foundation for everything to come. axioms was intentionally minimal and themed around being anti-religious, which they felt was a destructive and wasteful force in the world. In 2012 a remix version of axioms was released. It featured remixes by Assemblage 23, Beborn Beton, Decoded Feedback and more. To help promote the release they went on an North America tour with artists Die Sektor, The Gothsicles, and Deviant UK.

This album Rise From The Dead is one of those moments.”

The comeback for Zane follows a hiatus during which he established a successful Hollywood career as a music video director, working on projects with such acts as Zakk WyldeJohn 5DMCWayne Static, and Orgy.

For me this isn’t so much of a return for the band but more a return of
my understanding of how necessary musical exploration is to my existence,” said Zane.

Society 1 gained a name for itself nationally for their wild stage antics,
including the Download Festival in 2005, where Zane broke several records by performing the entire set suspended from 4 meat hooks through his back.

Lord Zane is one of the most talented individuals you will ever come in
contact in our industry these days” said DSN President Guy Giuliano. “He has conquered every media platform, with a level of true professionalism, and he’s only really just getting started!
