Welcome Scribbler Fans! Sometimes when you first listen to new music either you're not in the mood for that particular style or something is distracting you or your mind is just somewhere else. This is why Old Man Feind rarely tosses any music because there are many albums I didn't care for on the first listen that I revisited and loved later on. It appears I may have found another...
It seemed metal heads everywhere fell in love with Black Crown Initiate's 2013 Ep, Song of the Crippled Bull, but it didn't really hook me in. Maybe it was reading reviews that slobbered all over the band like a dog over a juicy steak (or me for that matter - STEAK!) . This is a big turn off for me even if I like a band. Cries of a band being the next big thing just make me wanna vomit since I've heard that shit a billion times about many severely crappy bands. So perhaps when I had my first listen to Black Crown Initiate I was unfairly judging them wanting to hate them just because of the accolades being poured on them. It doesn't matter because their first full length, The Wreckage of Stars, is about to be unleashed and this week I was finally hooked in by the excellent track, Withering Waves. I honestly have to say the song is awesome with a little something for everybody's musical taste. Take a listen for yourself below and see what you think.
This song really hooked me in being heavy as hell in places and melodic as hell in others. I love it and can't stop spinning it so hopefully it has the same effect on all of you. The Wreckage of Stars comes out Sept 30th via eOne Music, pre-order HERE. Also if you missed it here is their initial offering Song of the Crippled Bull in case you never heard it or just weren't into it on first listen like me.
