Progressive Hard Rock/ Metal
Navid Rashid (Vocals, Guitar);

Check out KARMA SOWN, the new album by Iris Divine. Emotional, progressive hard rock/metal with alternative influences.
Wow, this is an impressive trio indeed what a treat musically for the ears -try Kings X meets RUSH meets Primus , yes off the wall playing and yet such structured and professional playing. With emphases on the bass , very bass oriented. Most albums have the bass more in the background -not this one that is what I love about this album every instrument is clear and well played!
"In Spirals" is an instrumental and just amazes me the sound that these men create -what talent we have.
The drumming on here is inspiring being a drummer myself on and off since the age of 12 (now 48) I love the overall musical gifts that is shown on this album.
The musical breakdown that is shown in the video above shows the incredible tightness this band has musically -lots of bands can pull that sort of skill of in a studio, not many can replicate it live they have proven that they indeed can.
Again so much great music coming out this year, this is easily one of my favorites , musically there will probably not many albums that can compete with this, but this is only the end of March , we still have another 9 months to go for the year to be over.
However the way in which the songs are created and played , this is so fresh even though I compared them to the three bands at the start that was merely a comparison , for their skills match those mentioned. Two of the bands mentioned have two of the overall best bass players in the world as well.
Thank you for reading this
