Warren Ellis has something to say about the Doomed Bird.

As in Warren Ellis the writer, not the violinist.

Some good words from the most recent edition of his Orbital Operations newsletter:

This instrumental album by The Doomed Bird Of Providence, currently on pre-order with one track up for free streaming, is fantastically ancient and evocative and landscape-devotional. And then percussion comes in and it gets stormy. The storm passes and the ground hisses.

And some other good words from discerning writers:

Sigil of Brass

This is The Doomed Bird Of Providence’s finest work yet – yet – I cannot bring myself to listen to the album for a good few days to come: it is barbarous, it is bloody, it is brutal. It is the work of a genius.

Aural Aggravation

As a work which wanders through a number of instrumental musical territories, Burrowed into the Soft Sky is interesting and rewarding.
