CORVUS STONE Is: Pasi Koivu (keyboards), Colin Tench (guitar), Petri Lemmy Lindström (bass), Robert Wolff (drums), Blake Carpenter (vocals), Sonia Mota (artwork). Special Guest: Andres Guazzelli
Keskisuomalainen (a big daily newspaper in Finland) featured Corvus Stone on July 2, 2013. The band is mentioned on the front page and inside there is quite a large main article of the band featuring the interviews of Petri Lemmy Lindström (bass) and Pasi Koivu (keyboards). The story is expertedly written and edited by the journalist Anniina Meronen. This all happened in beautiful Jyväskylä (Ravintola Vesilinna) where also the pics were taken. Great fun indeed!
November 20th, 2012, Helsinki, Finland – The physical version debut disc from Corvus Stone, simply entitled "Corvus Stone," is coming soon from Melodic Revolution Records. Released digitally on November 6th, the physical copy will be released on November 29th. One song from the album was recently featured on a charity album dedicated to relief efforts for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Although the actual band Corvus Stone is a reasonably new outfit, the various members of the group have some notable musical pedigrees. Guitarist Colin Tench is known for his work in BunChakeze, Road to Avalon (featuring former Flower Kings drummer Zoltan Csörsz Jr.) and the Colin Tench Project. Petri Lemmy Lindström (bass) plays in Progeland and Saturn Twilight and was formerly in Lyijykomppania. Keyboardist Pasi Koivu has performed as a solo artist and with Psychedelic Eye. Drummer Robert Wolff was previously in Raven and Micah. The album also includes guest appearances by Blake Carpenter of Road to Avalon and Minstrel's Ghost (vocals) and John Culley (Black Widow and Odin) who provides guitar on one song. At Examiner.com, Jordan Blum said of Corvus Stone, ""Corvus Stone is quickly becoming a group to watch for… Corvus Stone prove that their quite capable for taking the genre by storm. The band expertly blends the sounds of their musical forefathers with their own ideas, which results in very commendable creations. If you haven't heard this group yet, you certainly should."
At ProgArchives, Michael Neumann said, "…the full album never once loses its melodic footing, and the enthusiasm of the performances all but leaps out of the speakers. This is an album fairly bursting with ideas even when it lacks a larger thematic unity, and the effect on a sympathetic listener can be just as exhilarating as it must have been for the players themselves.".. In the upcoming issue of Music Street Journal, Jason Hillenburg said this of the album, "In a little under eighty minutes, Corvus Stone covers an extraordinary amount of ground..." He also said, "Virtually every song on this album burns with the red-hot ambition to explore. This is a band eager to entertain the listener, but their purpose is wider - they are intent on engaging the imagination and emotions in equal measure. As a further testament to the band's undeniable skill, you will hear echoes of their influences, but the band synthesizes these echoes into a larger, unique whole. Corvus Stone inhabits a sonic landscape all their own. Few progressive rock outfits draw on so many colors from their palette or embrace melody so completely."..
