The Blackbird and the Dying Sun
Company: Klonosphere
Release: 2017
Genre: Hard Rock

French hard rock act that is fairly inventive
COMMENTS:
'Blackbird and the Dying Sun' is the second album for this French straight-laced metal band. Musically, it's fairly quick paced, fuzzy hard rock that is fairly inventive given rock's invisible boundaries. 'Here Comes the Night' has this wicked bass wallop and distorted riffs that are isolated in place of a huge lead that would normally fall two-thirds into the song. That's clever and isn't overindulgent. The vocals are similar to AIC but have their own identity. Often experimental, tracks like 'Oceanic Feeling' are subdued and dreamlike while other cuts are straight ahead rockers. Hard to find a similar band...maybe Chevelle?
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Chevelle, Alice in Chains
