Although Raven’s origins date as far back as 1974, they came to the attention of the British rock media with the 1980 release of their debut single, ‘Don’t Need Your Money’. Hailing from Newcastle, it seemed inevitable that brothers John & Mark Gallagher, on Bass Guitar / Lead Vocals & Lead Guitar respectively, joined by drummer Rob “Wacko” Hunter, would sign to Newcastle based NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) label Neat Records, alongside other NWOBHM luminaries Venom, Fist & White Spirit.

A big influence on future thrash metal legends such as Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth & Anthrax, their highly energised form of speed metal became the self-styled “athletic rock”, a genre that would extend to the band wearing of baseball and American football apparel on stage.

The band's second full length for Neat Records, 'Wiped Out' features top tracks like 'Faster than the Speed of Light', 'Hold Back the Fire' and 'Bring the Hammer Down' - one of the best records from the classic NWOBHM era
