Birmingham band apsis borrows from rock, metal, goth, sludge and progressive music to make, what it calls, "heavy atmospheric rock" -- an eccentric mix of layered music that singer Chip Hudson and guitarist Nick Mitchell hope sounds eclectic without sounding confused. This is "Never Catch a Falling Knife" from the CD "Blood Hits the Bridle." (AUDIO MONTAGE)
Chip Hudson and Nick Mitchell of the band apsis. Their new CD is "Blood Hits the Bridle". They play The Highnote this Friday night and next Saturday night.
