RAVENS CREED, the "VENOM-worshipping scumbags" featuring ORANGE GOBLIN's Ben Ward, as well as Steve Watson (ex-IRON MONKEY), Jason Graham, and former SABBAT bassist Frazer Craske, have issued the following update:"We have parted company with lead guitarist James Kiely. The decision was made shortly after completing the ALBION THUNDER UK tour. No gossip, no scandal. The decision was made to revert back to a four-piece — as when we started. We would like to thank James for his time and dedication to the band and wish him well for the future. We will not be replacing him." In other news, RAVENS CREED's "Militia Of Blood Sacrifice" four-song EP will be released on CD all over the world on August 10 via Iron Pig Records. It will be distributed by Southern and can also be ordered directly from the Iron Pig web site.
