Album Review: Gypsyhawk – Revelry & Resilience
Gypsyhawk’s newest record Revelry & Resilience is dropping on August 28th via Metal Blade Records. This record has got me thoroughly excited for metal music. There’s a new classic rock trend showing up in recent metal, that oldies soul which has been ingrained within all of us from our parents. Probably because most of the young adults out there listening to metal were conceived while Zeppelin, Frampton & Nazareth were spinning on the record player. It’s about God damn time bands like Gypsyhawk have started to incorporate the late 60/70′s rock n roll in their music. An era that I believe to be the greatest of our time. I wish I was an adolescent back then rocking out and jumping around naked in puddles at Woodstock.
Gypsyhawk are straight up rockers playing gnarly riffs and trippy lead guitar solo’s on their newest offering. Revelry & Resilience is a fantastic listen that won’t disappoint you. This definitely shakes up the usual metal bill at shows and is guaranteed to have you banging your head old school style. Gypsyhawk is a metal band to watch, along with Barn Burner which is also bringing back some classic rock into their music and fellow label mates on Metal Blade Records.
Songs like Galaxy Rise and The Fields are stand out tracks to spin. The fields reminds me a bit of the Canadian band Pride Tiger with their song ‘The Lucky Ones’ but clearly more metal and more rad. Every track on the new record will have you tapping your feet, finger drumming on your work desk and uncontrollably cracking beers/having a good time.
Go buy your trusty dime bag, a sixer of pilsner and rock the hell out of this record. Pick it up on August 28th at your local music store.
