Classic rock meets heavy metal on ”Peace and Conflict”; the second studio album by Swedish five piece The Riven. Since the release of their debut, self-titled album from 2019, the group has recruited a second guitarist, enabling more dynamic twin guitar arrangements and colorful melodic elements enriching the new tracks. This combined with a powerful vocal performance and a tightly pounding rhythm section results in a full blown rock explosion divided into 9 new tracks.

With a growing number of gigs, tours and festival appearances on their resume, ”Peace and Conflict” shows an ever evolving The Riven, still with a sound firmly rooted in NWOBHM- powered hard rock. Lyrically tackling subjects such as life, death, freedom, love, and hate while moving between fast paced heavy metal numbers to laid back acoustic cuts, ”Peace and Conflict” offers a varied and vibrant rock experience.

“Peace & Conflict is full of catchy rock tunes and psychedelic vibes. It’s only half as long as a Stranger Things episode, so make sure you give it a spin and find out who dies at the end.” – The Riven

”Peace and Conflict” was recorded at La Cavana Studios by Arnau Díaz. The album was mixed and mastered by Ola Ersfjord. Artwork by Maarten Donders. ”Peace and Conflict” will be released on The Sign Records on the 25th of November, 2022.
