The Raven is the fourth studio album by English new wave band The Stranglers. It was released on 21 September 1979, through record label United Artists. The first two songs, much of the artwork (the band is shown standing on the prow of a Viking longship) and the album title refer to Norse mythology. The album deals with a variety of issues, including Japanese ritual suicide ("Ice"), heroin use ("(Don't Bring) Harry"), the Iranian Revolution ("Shah Shah a Go Go") and genetic engineering ("Genetix").

By the time The Raven was released, the Stranglers had branched out a bit from their punk-influenced pop music stylings and grouchy p-based lyrics. Half the songs on this album (among them "Dead Loss Angeles," "Nuclear Device," "Shah Shah a Gogo," and "Genetix") spout verses critical of social or political issues. Only the first of these four numbers, with its clipped vocal delivery and stripped-down, bass-heavy arrangement, shows significant British punk influence.
