In the clip below, RAVEN frontman John Gallagher talks with Slayed In Oregon about being kids, forming a band, the tragic accident that almost killed his brother Mark Gallagher (guitar, backing vocals), and more:
Raven have been added to 70000 Tons Of Metal, the world’s biggest heavy metal cruise, which will sail January 27th to 31st from Miami, Florida to Costa Maya, Mexico and back!

Are you ready for round four of The Original Heavy Metal Cruise? Imagine starting the year in style: In January 2014, 40 heavy metal bands and 2,000 fans from all over the world will travel once again to the Caribbean for a five day and four night trip of a lifetime… however, this will be the last time we are taking over the luxury cruise ship Majesty Of The Seas.
Make no mistake, this is not one of the cruises where you share the ship with regular cruise guests… and don’t get intimidated by copy-cats! Unlike others we remove the seats in the theater, or do you like seated heavy metal shows? This is 70000 Tons Of Metal, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise, featuring the biggest Open Air Stage to sail the open seas!
Enjoy unrestricted festival access to all live shows on board, metal karaoke until sunrise, the All-Star Jam, clinics, work-shops, our infamous Belly Flop Contest, bars that never close, two full days at sea and the opportunity to mingle side-by-side with the artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It’s like everyone has a backstage pass!”
