The Riven Launch Second Studio Album ‘Peace and Conflict’
Classic rock meets heavy metal on Peace and Conflict, the second studio album by Swedish five piece The Riven.
Since the release of their debut, self-titled album from 2019, the group has recruited a second guitarist, enabling more dynamic twin guitar arrangements and colorful melodic elements enriching the new tracks. This, combined with a powerful vocal performance and a tightly pounding rhythm section, results in a full-blown rock explosion divided into 9 new tracks.
With a growing number of gigs, tours and festival appearances on their resume, Peace and Conflict shows an ever evolving The Riven, still with a sound firmly rooted in NWOBHM- powered hard rock. Lyrically tackling subjects such as life, death, freedom, love, and hate while moving between fast paced heavy metal numbers to laid back acoustic cuts, Peace and Conflict offers a varied and vibrant rock experience.
