Keen of the Crow

Keen of the Crow was a very short-lived band that rose from the ashes of epic Southern California doom metal band, Morgion. KotC favored a more user-friendly Opeth approach, but this demo is great anyways. Eventually they recorded and album for Grau records, that in my opinion, wasn't as memorable as this demo. They broke up soon after, with the members forming and reforming various bands and projects soon after. Ludicra had the extreme pleasure of doing a short run of gigs with these guys around 2005, and we have remained friends since. Great dudes.

Morgion's Solinari is a gem, very distinctive and still unimitable. I'll download this on that strength though I don't expect it to sound like that.

This better be a rip from the original CD-R..

But yes: Rules. Shame about the Falses forgetting Morgion.

This is a rip from the CDR that the band gave me when we travelled, but why would it matter?
