rave the reqviem

Genre: Industrial Metal

Rave The Reqviem was founded by Filip Lönnqvist in 2011. The purpose of this project was to combine metal with modern electronic music, such as electro-industrial, drum 'n' bass and dubstep. Filip's mother Carola joined the project and added her ethereal soprano voice on top of the choruses. Thus, the vision of creating "a polarized and bittersweet sound where mechanical darkness meets beauty and sentiment", was complete.

In January 2012, the first two songs were released. After two self-released demos in 2013 - that immediately gained attention in the international underground scene - RTR signed a record deal with DWA.

Rave The Reqviem released their self-titled debut album on April 11, 2014. The album was very well received and became an instant hit in the underground industrial community. Most critics were overwhelmed by the freshness of the sound.

We're sure that Rave the Reqviem gives us a great time with lots of engergy at Subkult!
