Syracuse area metal is going strong as seen already these past couple of days with SAMMYS nominees ERA and One Last Shot. Powering into the local consciousness and flying along in the SAMMYS People’s Choice Award voting, Crows Cage offers up intense, talent-heavy groove-laden metal that will get the crowd bouncing and your girlfriends hips moving, and what more would you possibly want?

These guys have played, and more than held their own onstage, with some of the bigger names in hard rock and metal. Their music gets into your head and implants itself into your very soul with style, power, wicked driving beats from drummer Clint Greer and bassist Tommy Rose, the guitar-virtuosity of Aaron Bellows and the powerful voice of EJ Carrara.

The bands first CD features some incredible work with American Monster (which is also just re-released as an acoustic version) available on the bands Reverbnation page: http://www.reverbnation.com/closertolife

The plugged in version alone is infectious but the acoustic version gives it an entire new life altogether that simply jams, there is no better way to put it. Grindstone and Derivation are two of the best metal songs locally that I have heard period.

Now, the band is hard at work on their second CD and this writer got the first listen of the new track “Taken From Me” and the band has simply taken what they already were and built a polished chrome machine, the mix of power, the groove-hook laden song is a masterpiece. Crows Cage grew up and got better by a mile.

Do yourself a favor and follow them on everything (links below) and see them live near you soon. Crows Cage simply rocks.
