Lost Symphony Premiere “A Murder Of Crows” Video

Lost Symphony have premiered a new video for “A Murder Of Crows“ off their new album “Chapter II” (out October 16). That track is inspired by the memory of late All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert and it features Jon Donais (Anthrax, Shadows Fall), Matt Bachand (Shadows Fall), and Jimi Bell (Autograph, House Of Lords).

Lost Symphony’s Benny Goodman commented:

“Someone had sent me a picture of hundreds of crows over a funeral reception. They asked me if I knew what a group of crows was called? ‘No idea?’ A murder of crows. Except it’s not just the birds doing it.”

Donais added:

“Working with Lost Symphony was such a blast for me! It’s an honor to play on a project with some of the best heavy-metal [and] rock guitarists out there. This is a must for anyone who loves shred guitar!”
