ravenherz aka Otto Ravenherz is a 21 year old student from Russia. He was inspired by Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, AC/DC and Metallica since early childhood. At the age of 5, he was watching live performances on VHS again and again and decided to become a Rock Star, but his parents always told him that being a musician isn’t a stable way of life. Much later, at the age of 13, he decided to learn how to play classic guitar and gained his parents’ permission to attend a cheap music school.
He worked for many months to buy his first guitar and a cheap sound destruction unit. During this time he hadn’t noticed the decline of Rock music worldwide and how it now lives in other sub-genres which he didn’t find exciting. At 17 years old he had some experiences playing progressive rock, he tried experiments with blues and other worn out genres.
He had grown in both personal and physical meanings, studying forensics science in Saratov State University, changing both life and music priorities in pretty wide range from classics and instrumental to electronics and experimental . Now ‘ravenherz’ is his first attempt at producing electronic sounds. Other inspirations for Otto are Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails, How To Destroy Angels), Richard D. James (Aphex Twin, AFX, Polygon Window), Lunatic Calm and Juno Reactor.
