Artist Biography Rave The Reqviem was founded by Filip Lönnqvist during the late fall of 2011. The purpose of this project was to combine rock and metal with modern electronic music, including everything from electro-industrial to drum 'n' bass and dubstep. In addition, Filip let his mother Carola put her ethereal soprano voice on top of the choruses. Thus, the vision of creating “a polarized and bittersweet sound where mechanical darkness meets beauty and sentiment”, was complete.
In January 2012, the first two songs were released. Throughout the year that followed, Filip worked hard in the studio to shape and evolve the characteristic sound of RTR. After two self-released demos in 2013 - that immediately gained attention in the international underground scene - RTR signed a record deal with DWA.
Rave The Reqviem released their self-titled debut album on April 11, 2014.
