Originally released digitally in 2016, Laocoon was eventually released on vinyl in March 2019 on two beautiful editions – Phanaios and Noctilucent – both now sold out. Cut to 45RPM on double 180g vinyl in a heavyweight gatefold with extended artwork and a touch of hot foil, this new Tephra edition is presented in splatter vinyl and limited to 250 copies.
Ravena’s astonishing debut “Laocoön” consists of four ethereal post-rock movements shrouded in mystery and mysticism that unveil a shadowy intensity and devastating beauty. It is a journey with an ominously thrilling tone that took the band four years to create.
“A massive post rock album, filled with nuance and subtlety. Laocoön is an impressive foray into the realms of cinematic post rock and post metal”. – Eden Kupermintz (Heavy Blog is Heavy)
