The third full length from Bouquet of Dead Crows welcomes, new bassist Karen Gadd, which balances out the yin and yang within the quartet, and, which also brings a fresh and revitalised feel to the bands sound. The complete collection is called Hemispheres – the title of which describes an album of two parts.
The first part “Celestial” was released last year, the second part “Cerebral” is due for release October 22nd. We are releasing both the second part as a standalone item and also a complete version of the full album. Of the latter there will also be a CD version.
This latest chapter in the Bouquet of Dead Crows story finds the quartet adopting a more progressive sound with their trademark riffs with big melodies approach being enhanced to incorporate more layered and nuanced elements, different time signatures and tunings, and more reflective and sometimes ambient sections. The duality of the album title is carried through to the music. Intense hard rocking sections contrast with quieter moments.
