With The Famine, what’s old is new again. Sort of. “The Famine is about the now and the future, not a long ago past,” says vocalist Chris McCaddon. “We’ve long since moved on and we’re concentrating on making new music.” The Southern-tinged, bitingly metallic The Raven And The Reaping is The Famine’s debut effort for Solid State Records. The Famine features three of the original members of the long defunct, yet fondly remembered band Embodyment, which formed over thirteen years ago.
