North Carolina doom rock duo Crystal Spiders to release new album »Morieris« this October 1st on Ripple Music; new video and pre-order available!
North Carolina’s acclaimed heavy duo Crystal Spiders announce the release of their sophomore album »Morieris« on October 1st through Ripple Music, as well as the contribution of Corrosion Of Conformity’s Mike Dean on lead guitar on the album. Get mesmerized by the video for new single »Morieris« now!
For their eagerly anticipated follow up »Morieris«, North Carolina duo Crystal Spiders bassist Brenna Leath and drummer Tradd Yancey take a lead guitar assist from Mike Dean (Corrosion Of Conformity bassist, and Leath’s bandmate in Lightning Born) for a rollercoaster ride of doomy atmospherics, razor-sharp riffs, and infectious rhythms.
With their second offering, Crystal Spiders builds upon and refines the whiplash intensity of »Molt« to experiment with intricate harmonies, thundering breakdowns, and orchestral instrumentals (including guest cello from High Priestess Nighthawk of Heavy Temple). 2020 saw their debut album »Molt« seated on many Album of the Year charts, and with »Morieris«, there’s no doubt the 2021 lists will save a spot for them as well.
The video for the title track »Morieris« was animated by Max Rebel of Ripple Music labelmates Plainride, with a lyrical theme inspired by the myth of Echo and Narcissus from Ovid’s »Metamorphoses«, and visuals inspired by Salvador Dali’s surrealist work »Metamorphosis of Narcissus«. New album »Morieris« is due out on October 1st and available to pre-order through Ripple Music on limited edition splatter vinyl, black vinyl, CD and digital.
Dripping with fuzzed-out guitars, soaring vocals, and swaggering groove, North Carolina duo Crystal Spiders’ debut album »Molt« (2020) quickly won the hearts of stoner metal fans and critics alike. Now for their eagerly anticipated follow up »Morieris«, bassist Brenna Leath (Lightning Born, The Hell No) and drummer Tradd Yancey (Doomsday Profit, Thirsty Curses) take a lead guitar assist from Mike Dean – Corrosion Of Conformity bassist and Leath’s bandmate in fellow Ripple Music labelmates Lightning Born – for a rollercoaster ride of doomy atmospherics, razor-sharp riffs, and infectious rhythms.

Crystal Spiders fits within the lineage of Sabbath-bred influences ranging from Fu Manchu to Kyuss, from Weedeater to Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats. But their broad scope — which pulls eagerly from classic rock dynamics and hardcore punk intensity, psychedelic texture and bluesy swing — pulls the band closer to contemporaries like Year Of The Cobra and The Well.

Brenna Leath – Bass/Vocals
