Stef wrote the track ‘Jussipussi’ for the first album of Corvus Stone. Their second album has just been released and contains a cover of the track ‘Boots For Hire’ from Murky Red, also written by Stef. Stef sings and plays on both tracks as guest.
Corvus Stone’s album ‘Corvus Stone II’ has been released on the 30th of September 2014. You can buy the digital version or order your copy and get the digital version immediate download as an extra treat! Listen and buy here.
But who are Corvus Stone you might think?
A band comprised of individuals, all with their own unique styles and approaches. You want predictability & an obvious theme on an album, you will not find it here (Or will you?). If you enjoyed radio stations like the ones that existed in the good old days (anything and everything), you will enjoy what you find here! They really do mix it up.
If you want to like what you hear in the first 30 seconds, again… look elsewhere but if you want music to grow on you as you get to know it, Corvus Stone’s music does exactly that.
There is melodic content 100% of the time in everything they do. Sometimes there is singing, sometimes not.
They invite an array of guests to join them on their albums and The Minstrel’s Ghost, BLAKE CARPENTER on Vocals, has become a true band member.
From the band themselves:
We are indeed labelled as progressive rockers but our albums are not “in” that genre in a normal sense. We don’t fit any other genre and in my book, that means we default to the genre called “prog”.
Listen to each track as tho’ it is a single track. Once you “get” it, you should find that the album really flows and makes complete sense. It seems to get deeper and more involved as it moves along. We can promise that YOUR favorite track will not be the same as the next guy’s.
Our rules are simple.
We don’t try to sound like anyone.
We don’t try to NOT sound like anyone.
We don’t try to be different.
We don’t try to fit any mould & we will never do what reviewers suggest we do.
We enjoy and put a lot of thought into every second of everything we do.
