All for One is the third full-length album by British heavy metal band Raven, released in 1983. This would be their last album outside of a major label, also being said by fans to be their last "golden age" album, containing some of their finest work. It is also notable that Udo Dirkschneider, frontman of German band Accept would appear on a couple of the tracks recorded.

Tracks 11-13, which were added to the CD re-issue, were taken from "Break the Chain", a Raven's single released around the same time. They feature Udo Dirkschneider performing vocal parts with John Gallagher.[3]
