about

Raptorbaby's first full length album, "Citadel", was meticulously recorded over 8 months in Pretoria, South Africa. Inspired by the journey of discovery experienced by the last man on earth, the album explores the tales and history encountered by the man in a grand library, referred to as the "Citadel", as he studies to finally gain his ascension. Comprised of 12 tracks, "Citadel" is the culmination of all the bands work over the past 4 years, and sees the band experimenting ever further with their established mix of Mathcore, Death Metal, Electronic and Progressive elements.
