Italian heavy rockers Bird dropped a special Christmas bundle including digital single »Wintertale« and a B-side cover of Uriah Heep’s classic »The Wizard«.
The band comments: “Hey Demons and Wizards!
»Wintertale« is the second single from our latest studio album »The Great Beast From The Sea«. Here’s a special X-mass digital bundle including a special artwork by Francesco Bauso (Negative Crypt Artworks) and a bonus unreleased cover of Uriah Heep classic »The Wizard«.
»Wintertale« is taken from »The Great Beast From The Sea« mini-album.

Bird is a newborn combo from Napoli, Italy, including members from other bands such as Lee Van Cleef, The Dhaze and WhiskeyCold Winter. The band is currently playing a mix of rock blues from the 60’s and the 70’s, folk rock, stoner, heavy psych, Sabbath oriented doom rock and prog elements.
In order to melt all those “common influences”, the band is searching for its own identity, in a long walk that starts from the 70s (and even before) and tries to re-elaborate in both traditional and modern terms the sound of all the styles that we mentioned before. The logo was realized by Henry Bennett, who also worked with bands such as Earthless.
In April 2019, they published a mini EP, called »Mother Of Pain«, while the second single »In The Night He Comes« featuring Silvi Pearl was released in December 2019 via Electric Fire Records. An acoustic medieval version of their new song »La Danse Des Cadaveres« dropped in May 2020.
»The Great Beast From The Sea« was released on April 6th, 2021 and is available on cassette via Olde Magick Records.

The biggest surprise for me in 2021. I buy every tape that Olde Magick releases and when this originally came out, some how I missed it. I only got around to it back in September. Needless to say, these guys are so good, especially his vocals. I need more from them soon.
