Kaddisfly was an alternative progrock band from Portland, Oregon. Active between 2001-2008 with 3 EP´s and 3 full length albums released where "Set sail the prairie" was the last one. The "Demos and rarities" collection came out in 2011 but the band has split up and some of the members continue as Water and Bodies with their debut album released last year.
This is a lengthy album but unfortunately an uneven affair, it sure has it´s shining moments like "Clouds", "Empire" and "Snowflakes" which shows the band in fine form but there are also some dull moments that makes me wanna skip a few tracks.
For fans of Dredg, Incubus and Circa Survive.
