Corvus Stone love many forms of music and certainly not fans of genres or labels.
A band comprised of individuals, all with their own unique styles and approaches. You want predictability & an obvious theme on an album, you will not find it here (Or will you?). If you enjoyed radio stations like the ones that existed in the good old days (anything and everything), you will enjoy what you find here! They really do mix it up.

If you want to like what you hear in the first 30 seconds, again… look elsewhere but if you want music to grow on you as you get to know it, Corvus Stone’s music does exactly that.
There is melodic content 100% of the time in everything they do. Sometimes there is singing, sometimes not.
They invite an array of guests to join them on their albums and The Minstrel’s Ghost, BLAKE CARPENTER on Vocals, has become a true band member.
Sonia Mota creates all the artwork for albums and videos.
Pasi, Colin, Petri & Robert never planned to form a band when they met by chance on the internet. They were already busy with their own bands at that time. Some recordings that they made for fun, made it obvious to them that this was different and had all the magic and surprise that rarely comes from a plan. Progressive music is considered the last bastion of “real music” but so often suffers from predictability due to limitations set by “experts” and the genre itself. Corvus Stone step in and out of “prog” within the space of one song!
Corvus Stone state as follows:
Our rules are simple.
We don’t try to sound like anyone.
We don’t try to NOT sound like anyone.
We don’t try to be different.
We don’t try to fit any mold & we will never do what reviewers suggest we do.
We enjoy and put a lot of thought into every second of everything we do.
Their first (80 minute) album was released in 2012 and received some incredible reviews on progarchives and elsewhere.
