You Should Be Listening To . . .Cast Iron Crow!
Hailing from Bay Area, San Fran, Cast Iron Crow are a four piece grunge/alt metal band that channel the spirit of nineties grunge and alternative rock in all it's glory ,from the twisted rhythmic trickery early Tool to the soulful streetwise sound of Alice In Chains circa 'Facelift' , the band were born after singer Jake Navarra shattered his collar bone twice and was forced to quit guitar and take up crooning instead. Considering most folk might give up altogether after such a trauma, it's a testament to the band's testicular fortitude and belief in their music that Navarra simply picked up a mic and kept going, and this hard working is ethos reflected in the band's no bullshit ,straight up, hard rock sound.Oh, and it just so happens that Tim Sult, bassist for rock gods Clutch, is a fan.If all that hasn't swayed you, then perhaps you're reading the wrong blog.Play Loud.
