DJL68 The best all-female band I have ever heard, bar none. Sabbath meets Tull? Perhaps, but I hear even more- And love it!!!! Favorite track: Black Acid.

FDJ It's been a while since I've heard an all female rock band who don't wanna be some sort of female version of AC/DC.
Queen Crescent mix stoner/retro grooves with doomy occult themes and top it all of with some old school prog flourishes. Hard edged riffage combines with flute, synth, organ and even vibraphone and is backed up by a tight rhythm section of bass and drums.These ladies can sure play!
Highly recommend this. Favorite track: Culture Vulture.

paul rote Flute laden progressive hard rock with doom overtones ! There's also some nice organ play ! Imagine early Budgie mixed with Ruphus Zuphall !! These 4 young ladies have just made the greatest all female album in history. ( Any disputes ? ) one of the best releases of this already great year. Favorite track: Black Acid.

Are you ready for the Queen of the Crescent Moon? Are you ready for the Queen?
2.
No enigmas Stand transfigured The Moon is high and so am I She will wash and feed your soul Look deep into Her ancient eyes It’s no surprise You’re looking hard for something we all want: a special life A story told now for millennia A mortal’s tale She laughs and says, “Child roll your dice. You cannot fail” We’re born alone We die alone A flash of brilliance in eternal darkness Look deep into Her ancient eyes You cannot hide This life is short; it’s what you make of it Let’s take a ride
3.
You’re a culture vulture It’s not for you Circling your prey from above Greedy talons just can’t get enough You’ve surrendered your humanity And now you are wanting all of me You want everything I am Everything I am The life you lead is such a joke Unaware of your own mirrors and smoke You have it all and yet still you take I pray the day when your mind breaks

Ancestors 04:36
When I was a young girl The world opened before me I felt so strong and I felt so free Fierce little huntress in me But when the colonizers came And stole everything I have ever known Who owns this life now? Who can take it away? Who owns this life now, today? Ancestors, I know it’s true They will burn They will burn for you Oh yes they will! This is the season we are changing everything You have no idea of the power that we bring So take your hatred, take your lies, and take your fears Queen Crescent’s taking back the last 500 years Put it on the back burner Turn it up a lil' higher No attention towards me Put it on the back burner Turn it up a lil' higher You don't even faze me
5.
Black Acid 06:41
Black Acid coming out of my mouth Black Acid seeping into your mind Spilling the lies that have tainted us Get it out Let it go And now here I stand Wringing my hands so tight and all I can think is: I have nothing left to give So please go away before I do something That you will soon regret Slow death for all the sinners Slow death for all the liars Black Acid coming out of my mouth Spewing that blood that has poisoned us

I can’t wait for you baby I can’t wait for you anymore oh no I’ve gotta move on now baby ‘Cause I’ve got so much to live for The sun is setting on your friend The sun is rising on up for me The sun is rising The sun is rising on up for me, oh yeah! Ain’t nobody put you there baby You choose just what you’re gonna be Got no secrets for you to keep ‘Cause I know that you can’t get that deep You hold on to your narrative so hard You never let yourself look beyond Wake up from your stupor sleep colonized nightmare That they’ve conjured for you, can’t you see?

about

Album reviews:

"The awesome women comprising Queen Crescent effortlessly blend late ‘60s progressive rock with Indonesian, Turkish, Mexican and West African psychedelic rock of the ‘70s to create a sound that’s even more incredible than that short-lived time when Tony Iommi played guitar for Jethro Tull". -Michelle Solomon, "Resonance: Weekly Curator Picks", Pandora Radio
blog.pandora.com/2015/03/29/resonance-weekly-curator-picks-12/#more-7821

“Boogie and blood and moons and machines and flutes and freakery and gallop and GOD! Are you ready for the Queen of the Crescent Moon? We were born ready. Highest possible recommendation.” - Ryan Muldoon, Revolt of the Apes
revoltoftheapes.com/2015/03/05/band-of-the-week-queen-crescent/

“Queen Crescent are in a class of their own...The musical mysticism expressed on this album is more attuned to the true magical experience of psychedelics than the often overblown imagery of the stirring of cauldrons and the riding of broomsticks. “Culture Vulture”, (is) one of the best songs of this or any other year.” - Lucas Klaukien, You May Be Dead and Dreaming
ymbdad.blogspot.com/2015/03/queen-crescent-self-titled-album-review.html

"Queen Crescent plays a luxurious retro heavy rock in an elegant interweaving stylistic elements hard prog rock and proto-doom metal...Easily the best "retro-heavy-rock" album of winter-spring 2015" - Igor Gorely, Recyclable Sounds
recyclablesounds.blogspot.ru/2015/03/queen-crescent-queen-crescent-2015.html

“Not a song on the album feels underdone, and the care with which QC handle the music’s momentum does the group honors. A very fine first album, and one which fans of heavy psychedelic rock should not allow themselves to miss.” - Gabriel Pesek, Ride With the Devil
ridewiththedevil.blogspot.com/2015/03/bow-to-queen.html

"Prepare for an earful of fuzz wicked enough to slay any doubts of rock’s demise, infused with melodious flute like honey on coal, driven by sledgehammer drums and a pounding bass in your face!" - Sam Scarpelli, Fog and Magic
fogandmagic.blogspot.com/2015/03/queen-crescent-self-titled-2015.html

“It’s heavy and melodic and (vocalists) vocals are haunting yet sweet and hypnotizing. While this album does dip heavily into progressive rock, it’s a trippy, heavy and doomy piece of magnificent rock. The band really knows how to write and record some great tunes.” - Bill Goodman, The Evil Engineer
