We love a bit of theatrical metal, and LA's Raven Black deliver it plentifully. Adopting the stage names Raven, Muppet, The Doctor and Stitches and donning some pretty out-there get-ups, the quartet are as devoted to their visuals as they are their heavy-as-hell sound.
Guitarist Chris Blacker (The Doctor) joins Guitar World today for an exclusive playthrough of Darkest Pit, taken from the band's upcoming record, The Key - scheduled to be released later this year. The track contains a plethora of carnival-themed riffs for your viewing pleasure.
Sick Riffs is a Guitar World video series designed to help guitarists affected by the coronavirus. Self-isolating players around the world have each filmed a lesson where they teach you one of their own guitar riffs, up close and personal. If you dig the lesson, we encourage you to buy music and merch from the artist or stream their music.
