Raleigh is known as the City Of Oaks because of its many oak trees. Less known is probably the band Crystal Spiders which is from Raleigh. Maybe Crystal Spiders will be better known now since they 1st October will release the very good album Morieris?!
North Carolina’s acclaimed heavy duo Crystal Spiders announce the release of their sophomore album Morieris on October 1st through Ripple Music, as well as the contribution of Corrosion Of Conformity’s Mike Dean on lead guitar on the album. Get mesmerized by the video for new single Morieris now!
For their eagerly anticipated follow up Morieris, North Carolina duo Crystal Spiders bassist Brenna Leath and drummer Tradd Yancey take a lead guitar assist from Mike Dean (Corrosion Of Conformity bassist, and Leath’s bandmate in Lightning Born) for a rollercoaster ride of doomy atmospherics, razor-sharp riffs, and infectious rhythms.
With their second offering, Crystal Palace builds upon and refines the whiplash intensity of Molt to experiment with intricate harmonies, thundering breakdowns, and orchestral instrumentals (including guest cello from High Priestess Nighthawk of Heavy Temple). 2020 saw their debut album Molt seated on many Album of the Year charts, and with Morieris, there’s no doubt the 2021 lists will save a spot for them as well.
The video for the title track Morieris was animated by Max Rebel of Ripple Music labelmates Plainride, with a lyrical theme inspired by the myth of Echo and Narcissus from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, and visuals inspired by Salvador Dali’s surrealist work Metamorphosis Of Narciss
