They may call Bloomington, Indiana, home, but since their 2000 formation, Murder by Death have been a band without musical borders. Theirs is a world where Old West murder ballads mingle with rock-injected Western classicism; where an album’s sequencing can take listeners from a haunted back alley in rural Mexico to a raucous Irish pub. All of which is to say, Murder by Death albums ... Read more in Amazon's Murder by Death Store

Brilliant CD. Voice sounds a little like Johnny Cash, but that's no bad thing. Had not heard of them before but will now try the back catalogue.
Atmospheric and moody; personally the best track is 'Straight at the Sun', and the 'Cello'? in 'No Oath, No Spell', 'Go To The Light' should be the theme music to a Western film ... Brilliant.
Buy this before you die, or have 'Ghost Fields' played at your funeral.

Buy this now. 29 Sept. 2012
By Jenn - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Whether you've heard of this band or just stumbled on this page, do yourself a favor and buy this album. Beyond music - it is an artistic masterpiece. Go lay down in a field at night with your headphones, stare at the stars and listen to this album. The emotional range is beyond words. Not to mention the many, many instruments they utilize (cello, accordion, mandolin, theremin, cornet, to name a few), and how talented they are with them.

Check out: Lost River (one of the most beautiful songs I've heard, ever), Straight at the Sun, No Oath No Spell, I Came Around, Hard World.

In Awe. 29 Sept. 2012
By GAN - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I have been a long-time Murder by Death fan and truly appreciate their unique style. In Bocca al Lupo was a record that was so well crafted from beginning to end that it allowed listeners to leave their own existence and enter the thoughts and stories of the musicians. They have a skill in creating an anachronistic world where time and location are ambiguous. Thinking of tracks like "The Big Sleep", "Shiola", "Steam Rising" and "The Devil Drives", you are enraptured with a sense of awe by the dexterity of Murder by Death's ability to move you emotionally. When I bought "Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon" I was hopeful, yet skeptical, that they could keep this spirit alive. I am extremely pleased with this album. Words seem to fail me to describe the beginning tracks of this album. You easily and seamlessly slip into their world all over again. Each song is a composition that responds to and anticipates the other tracks of the album. Most albums by bands are a smattering of songs that either all have a same-ness or are so different that only one or two tracks can stand on their own. Not the case with this album. Each song is different but has a common thread with a different story to be told. As another reviewer said, do yourself a favor and buy this album. Take time to listen to each song through. And enjoy!

Another great album from a great, great band 17 Oct. 2012
By J. Luiz - Published on
Format: Audio CD
What a great band this is, and they deserve a much bigger following. I started hearing some of the songs on this when they were on tour last year, so I eagerly anticipated it. Just give a listen to a song like "I Came Around" about a showing up a funeral of guy you didn't like, for courtesy sake, and then getting a little drink and realizing from the stories the dead man's friends tell that you're superficial impression was far off the mark, and then realizing that the dead man is so worth of grief that you're overcome with it, by the end of the night. It's a great, great song. Then listen to "Hard World," which as Adam explained in one of his concerts he was inspired to write after 2 girls in his small Indiana town were killed. One was a rich girl, whose death got a lot of attention, the other a poor girl, whose murder was almost overlooked. Samantha Crane, who has toured with MBD, provides the backing vocal, and as she and Adam sing the haunting chorus, "Nobody calls for me/Nobody hunts for me/They don't seem to know I'm gone," your heart is wrenched with grief at the injustice of it.

Per usual, the album is filled with one great tune after the next. The uptempo rockers like "Straight at the Sun" and "Ramblin" are great, and the slower tempo stuff is just a good.

I love Adam Turla's voice and guitar playing and he is surrounded by talented musicians -- and Sarah on that cello gives them their signature sound. Drummer Dagan and Matt on the bass provide a greath rhtyhm section, and they have a new member of the band who plays multiple instruments.

There isn't one album they've produced that I haven't loved. I encourage anyone who likes their sound to get the whole catalogue. They have a signature sound but their style has evolved so much, every album is distinctly different.

Fantastic Well-Rounded Album 30 Nov. 2012
By Boardgamer_OH - Published on
I am already a big fan of this band, but I think this has become my favorite of their albums. I'm constantly surprised that each time I listen to it, I have a new favorite song. "Lost River" is the song that has impressed me the most on the album, and it's a free download on amazon (at the time of this review). Download it. Listen to it. Be amazed.

This album adds a keyboard player to their ensemble, and some tracks feature female vocals.

Great as always 6 Oct. 2012
By Nathan Brink - Published on
Verified Purchase
Not going to lie, when I first listened to this album, I was actually kinda disappointed. I've long been a big MBD fan, but when I first heard it, the vocals seemed almost a little wavering.

Don't know what was wrong with me though, after the second time around, I'm loving it. Worth every penny.
