After two albums, celebrated by fans and critics alike, the south-german metal band CONTRACRASH announced their breakup.

It didn’t take long for guitarist and mastermind Matt Carviero to release new material however. On May 31st the first NON-instrumental single of his new project BELLS AND RAVENS will be unleashed.

The track’s title is “Rise” and is sung by the talented vocalist Selin Schönbeck (We Are Legend).

The song itself goes in a more traditional direction than CONTRACRASH was known for. Heavy riffs and lots of melody – Heavy Metal as you know and love.

“Rise” will be part of a 5-track EP expected to be released in early 2020. But there’s even more to come, since Matt Carviero is working on another, purely instrumental, BELLS AND RAVENS album.
