Murder of Crows - "Toys of Desperation" CD review
by Patrick Ferris - HotBands Editor
Murder of Crows
Another band I was introduced to
while on my trip to Seattle was Murder of Crows.
I met with band drummer Genevieve Williams who filled me in on what they're about.
Their EP Toys of Desperation is dark, melodic, and aggressive. Although not your traditional "grunge" sound you would expect from Seattle, singer Winter Jaye has some very dark lyrics accompanied by HEAVY music. When listening to their CD, I get into wondering what inspires the poetry of the lyrics.
Murder of Crows has the sound that will cater to lovers of Gothic-rock, with obvious influences of metal and industrial bands like Tool, Nine-Inch Nails, or Hole. Although the band is relatively new to the Seattle scene, they have already started to draw a following of fans in the area.
Genevieve mentioned that the band is currently working on a full CD and have intentions of more to follow. We look forward to watching this band grow, and seeing them on an MP3 video.
