Introducing: Seven Eyed Crow  “Organized Chaos…

About three years after the release of their EP ‘Dark Ways To The Sun’, French alternative band Seven Eyed Crow (rock/metal/progressive crossover) announced the upcoming release of its debut full-length album called ‘Organized Chaos’ .

Seven Eyed Crow starts in summer 2013, with Aurélien (guitars) and Tom (bass). After a few years playing with their former bands, they chose to form a new project, on strong progressive rock basis. Alex (guitar) gets on board, to bring colours and power to strings. Then Fred (drums) joins the team, with his own experimental metal past and influences (Mister Bungle, Bumblefoot…). A few months later, Jay (vocals) is added to the crew, and sets a new layer of fusion, funk and hip-hop to the songs.
