Reissue of "The Riven", the critically acclaimed self-titled debut album from Sweden's Hardrock powerhouse The Riven, originally released in 2019. Progressive, psychedelic and classical musical elements standing side by side with a soulful and vigorous voice. Each of the nine songs, works as a chapter, revealing fates and tales from the past and the future. Recorded in 2018 at Holy Cuervo Studios, Madrid, Spain. In ten days they powered through the record's nine songs producing an album that "Is loud, is rock, is soul, and prog, it has it all!", in the band's own words. By the helping hands of producer Ola Ersfjord (Lucifer, Primordial, Dead Lord) the album manages to merge the diverse influences of its members into a solid unit of Rock and Roll, that will leave no one oblivious. "Make no mistake this band are going to blow up in stratospheric proportions" - The Sludgelord
