Count Raven

Of the several Sabbath-inspired bands on the Hellhound label, Sweden's Count Raven is probably the most representative of the classic doom sound for which Hellhound was renowned. The band has come dangerously close to Sabbath cloning at times (especially with the very Ozzy-inspired vocals), but strong songwriting kept the band afloat. After releasing four albums between 1990 and 1996, a deteriorating working relationship between founder Dan Fondelius and the other two members forced the band to fold in March of 1999. After a four-year absence, the trio regrouped in 2003 for another go, yet that incarnation also failed, and so Fondelius decided to simply hire new membership and carry on. The new-look Count Raven (new look in membership only, their style has not changed) released Mammons War in 2009, and after a long absence from recording, put out The Sixth Storm in 2021.
