Sorrow And Spire: With a stomping and infectious song…..

Sorrow And Spire - My Misery Calling

Sorrow And Spire is the solo project of Navid Rashid, long time driving force of US progressive metal band Iris Divine. He has recently signed to Crusader Records and has released his new single My Misery Calling on all digital platforms.

My Misery Calling is a stomping, infectious track that updates an 80’s hard rock vibe with modern sound and energy.  It’s one of those special songs where every part is a hook.  From the moment it kicks in, it inspires air-guitaring and singing along in equal measure.  Navid Rashid’s passionate vocals carry the track, with big drums and guitars, a memorable chorus, melodic guitar solo and a killer outro riff that brings in a little more of Sorrow And Spire metal influence. 

 Lyrically, the track takes a clever look at what happens when we try to hide from the broken parts of ourselves by finding someone else (sometimes a little broken themselves!) to fill in the cracks, instead of looking within to heal ourselves.  My Misery Calling is a perfect introduction to the melodic hard rock and songwriting of Sorrrow And Spire, and a worthy addition to the Crusader Records roster.

More than a throwback, fans of bands ranging from Def Leppard to Foo Fighters would be well advised to check out Sorrow & The Spire, for killer music that takes familiar sounds into modern directions.

Sorrow And Spire own Navid Rashid has always maintained a love for well-written melodic rock, where big guitar riffs support catchy and even pop-influenced melodies, and immediacy doesn’t have to sacrifice depth. Navid Rashid has been the leader of various bands and projects over the years. Although he has never gained notoriety outside of independent and underground music circles, he steadily refined his talents and continued to write and perform for the right reason – the love of the music. 

Now, with years of experience and the inspiration of amazing rock and metal music dating back to his youth, he has evolved into a solo artist that has something to say. Sorrow & The Spire is the voice of a singer/songwriter/guitarist who is equally at home with 80s influenced hard rock, the 90s/00s active rock and modern rock that fuses it together with alternative and touches of grunge.  

Navid Rashid is proud to release his first few singles through Crusader/Golden Robot Records. Produced, engineered and mixed by forty-year industry veteran Steve Brown (Trixter, Tokyo Motor Fist) and featuring good friends and guest rhythm section Chris DeChiara (U.S. Navy Band) and Jeff Teets (MindMaze), these tracks introduce rock fans to Sorrow & The Spire’s big riffs and memorable hooks, that go for the heart with unrelenting energy, and just flat-out rock. 

Navid Rashid’s melodic sensibilities shine through in his passionate vocals and distinctive guitar style, always putting emotion before technique, and the song before everything.  My Misery Calling kicks things off with infectious energy and a huge chorus.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (5513 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
