Dead Soul Tribe - A Murder Of Crows

Year of Release: 2003
Label: InsideOut
Catalog Number: IOMCD 130
Format: CD
Total Time: 61:13:00

Dead Soul Tribe is a band that is a perfect example of what progressive metal is. Bands featuring hard rocking guitar and vocals that administer that final blow, the awesome crunch into the music, are leading the way in the new millennium for this type of music. Strong recording artists such as this will tow the line for years to come. I expect these men to do just that as their careers advance with each recording. Much like their last album, this outing had no trouble impressing me.

The subject matter is a bit out there on this album ? something about crows carrying the souls of people after they die ? well their name is Dead Soul Tribe. None of this really mattered to me though because the music is what got my attention not the words to the songs. I realize both factors are important and my position is not intended to offend anyone or to downplay the importance of the lyrical content of this project. I realize that in regards to any sort of concept or theme, which is prevalent in this genre, that there is a two-fold impact upon the listener. In most cases I am affected in this way, in this particular instance the music took total precedence for me. DST is one dominant unit. I felt super charged listening to them. The only thing I can say is that I recommend this CD, get it and find out what it all means for you.
