Making our way through life, we get tested by various obstacles and internal emotions. A big part of surviving the day to day, is the ability to diversify yourself and be able to adapt. The debut EP HEAVY PEACE by Chloe Trujillo & Rav Medic, does exactly that.
It takes you on a journey of emotions, both lyrically and musically. Moments of anger, frustration and happiness are spaced out throughout the record.
By taking pieces of their own influences, they have been able to mold them into their own sound and feel.

Track by Track
‘WHISPER TO A RIOT’ is a chaotic opening song, an amalgamation of styles and time signatures are scattered throughout. Vocally Chloe showcases her ability to maneuver between genres, going from influences of 80s styled synth pop, to metal grooves. This is a monster opening track!
‘MANA’ is musically dynamic, ‘MANA’ harnesses the traditions of hard rock and metal, with elements of Spanish guitar anchoring the end. Lyrically, Trujillo invites the listener on an odyssey, one that closes with an allegory to continue creating and doing what you love.
‘A LADDER TO THE SUN’ distinguishes itself from the heavier sound of the first CT/RM singles. The layering of multiple vocals, guitars and strings together create a wide atmospheric journey, while lyrically Chloe takes you along on a journey of self-discovery & hope.
‘THE HEAVIEST SOUND IS SILENCE’ in a world of chaos and distraction, sometimes the hardest thing to find is peace and silence. Chloe Trujillo & Rav Medic explore ways to escape the daily madness and find inner calm on their latest single ‘The Heaviest Sound is Silence.’ A mellow sync pattern starts the single, before a low and heavy riff gets the song moving, with Chloe’s vocals driving the melody.
‘STONE COLD SOBER’ is a dark, haunting track to end the EP. Stripped back musically to allow space for Chloe‘s thought-provoking vocals and message.

ABOUT CHLOE TRUJILLO ⚡️RAV MEDIC
Born in Paris France, Chloe Trujillo has immersed herself in the art/music world from a young age. Her music is infused with anything from rap, metal, gypsy & blues. She first got her Visa through performing in NYC cabarets & musical theatre. From there, she was invited to LA by Gail Zappa to record the Frank Zappa cover ‘The Torture Never Stops.’ Chloe is also wife of Robert Trujillo from Metallica/Suicidal Tendencies.
Mark Dalbeth (Rav Medic), who is originally from New Zealand, made the move to Australia and started rock outfit Bellusira, who went on to release two notable albums and move to America briefly under management from Will Hunt (Evanescence). The band toured the USA a few times and had Koichi Fukuda from Static-X take over guitar duties. Once that project came to an end, Mark decided to stay in America and continue his musical pursuit.
Both parties met in early 2021 when asked to be a part of the Global Green Charity Event held at the Troubadour in LA.
After connecting online and having a mutual respect for each other’s music, Trujillo and Dalbeth suggested the idea of doing a collaboration. The track ‘Lightning Strikes Twice’ was the outstanding result. The feedback from the single was strong and they both enjoyed working together so much, that they decided to continue to work together under the banner Chloe Trujillo & Rav Medic.
