Heavy Harmonies Review|

|I'll start off with a caveat: I'm not a big blues fan. It's just not my thing. So take this review with a grain of salt. Let's see... how do I describe this album? Hmm... How about Bad Company meets Jimi Hendrix meets Stevie Ray Vaughn? It's kind of hard to put a finger on it exactly. It has a very stripped back "raw" sound (by this I do NOT mean underproduced), just gruff and rough. No silky layerings here, just solid hard rock. The disc has a very "classic rock" feel, as if the band were back in the 1970s. Unlike most blues that I've encountered, this has a nice crisp harder edge to it.|
David's vocals are quite distinctive. If this were a different style of music I'd most likely by unimpressed by his vocals, but the roughness lends itself particularly well to this (for lack of a better term) "blues metal". If anything, his vocals give an air of "authenticity" to the tracks, whereas someone with a smoother voice just wouldn't fit in. I also must say that this disc really shines instrumentally! It's got grooves and hooks all over the place. The guitarwork is top-notch and the band is tight! As one would expect from a blues album, most of the tracks are slower to mid-tempo. You get an occasional up-tempo groove here and there, but no blistering barn-burners. If you like blues with a heavier edge, this is the disc for you!

|This band is the brain child of guitar shred hero David T. Chastain, but here he behaves himself impeccably to play a great range of heavy blues influenced guitar riffs. The songs are strong, the production good. So if you like your blues heavy or you like your hard rock Southern, then check these guys out.
