32 Leaves is not emo. Or hardcore. Or pop-punk. If their sound
must be labeled, just call it "music for the pensive and
brooding." Not that they're morbid, but growing up surrounded by
the stark desert landscape of Phoenix, AZ must have planted a
seed of intensity and reflection. "Exposing the darker side of
things just comes naturally to us," says singer Greg Norris.
Moving deftly between the brutal and the beautiful, 32 Leaves
offers up powerful, driving rock that is as at once aggressive
and heavy, melodic and subtle. Sonically, they could be compared
to kindred spirits like Deftones, A Perfect Circle or Dredg, but
32 Leaves' unique musical identity is found within the
composition of their songs, their live shows and their
relationships with each other and the world around them.
|"It's always been a matter of synergy between the five of us,"
Norris explains. "It's truly a gift to have the connection that
we have. Often it's so intense that we don't even need to speak
to one another. Our ideas, thoughts and concerns work themselves
out through us, through our music."
32 Leaves recently finished recording their debut album 'Welcome
to the Fall' with Larry "Love" Elyea of Bioinc Jiver fame
recording and mixing at The Salt Mine and Minds Eye Digital in
As 2005 unfolds, 32 Leaves is focused and ready to bring their
music to an ever-widening audience. "We've spent enough time
huddled away in the rehearsal studio and the recording studio,"
Norris says. "We want reactions now...We want to see it in
hard rock radio, metal radio,
rock radio, progressive rock radio, heavy metal radio, nu metal radio,
metalcore radio, melodic hardcore radio, industrial metal radio
