The Burning Crows – Behind the veil

the burning crows - behind the veilThe Burning Crows released their debut EP “Never had it so good” last year which went down well with fans and critics – Planetmosh reviewer Mark Ashby gave it a 9/10.  Now, after a Pledgemusic campaign to raise the funds, the band are back with their debut album – Behind the veil.

Listening to the album it didn’t take me long to see why the EP had scored so highly – by the end of the first track I had a strong feeling that this was going to be one hell of a good album.  Opening track “High” gets the album off to a superb start.  The band have that good time rock and roll sound that bands like The Quireboys also possess – it’s music that puts a smile on your face as you listen to it.

That great opening track is followed by “All the way”, another great rock song.

The album isnt all high-tempo good time rock and roll though – with “Here I am” the band show they can handle ballads with equal ease.  Whippz on vocals does a great job here with some soulful powerful vocals.

Another track worthy of mention is title track “Behind the veil”.  It’s a great high tempo song with some excellent guitar work and a strong chorus.

Well, I had high expectations of this album based on the strength of the debut EP, and I definitely wasn’t disappointed – this is a great album, and is highly recomended
