Deformation of Man – Self-Titled

Posted in CD, Metal with tags , , , , , , , , on 21st May 2013 by hammersmashedlauren

Deformation of Man
Self-Titled
Released 11 February, 2013
Groove Metal
Self Released

 

Hailing from Sheffield, Deformation of Man have come together to make hard-hitting metal that is loud and aggressive in every possible way. With the release of their self-titled debut album, they’ve compiled 10 tracks that are diverse in sound and will keep you headbanging whether you listen to it in the car, sitting at your computer, or even are your grandmother’s funeral.

What really impressed me most about this album were definitely the guitars. Melodic and groovy riffs are heard throughout every song which, to me, is important since all the songs didn’t sound like they ran together. Not only were they super catchy, they also were not overly technical. Technical metal has been on the rise lately so it’s nice to hear a band who keeps it simple but more importantly keeps it brutal.

A couple of my favorite tracks for me were Down in the Filth and Perfect Lie. These two songs had the most memorable riffs on the entire album. Both songs had awesome choruses and gave me the feeling of wanting to listen to more to the album. To be honest, I was not fully into this album when I first started listening to it, but as I listened to it more, it grew on me and I actually enjoyed it.

One flaw in this album though is definitely the vocals. To me, they seemed monotonous and would really sometimes drown out the rest of the music. If there were more high vocals added to this album, it would’ve made it that much better. The vocals are probably the reason why it took me longer to get into the album, and it’s not like the vocals were completely unbearable either. For some reason, bands with one-level vocals like Hatebreed make it harder for me to enjoy the songs.

However, I would say that is album is an overall hit. If you’re a fan of bands like Heaven Shall Burn, Hatebreed, or Thy Will Be Done, you will definitely enjoy this band and this album. The fact that the guitars sounded absolutely incredible on this album was enough to win me over, and I hope to hear more!

3.5/5

Gypsyhawk premier “Hedgeking” gutar and bass demo vid

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 7th August 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Gypsyhawk have launched a brand new guitar and bass demonstration video exclusively via GuitarWorld.com. In the video, fans can see exactly how Eric Harris, Andrew Packer, and Erik “Ron Houser” Kluiber perform the song Hedgeking, which is the first single from their sophomore album, Revelry & Resilience. Each instrument is simultaneously visible throughout as Packer and Kluiber trade solos and Harris rips through the song’s catchy melodic bass lines. The Hedgeking demonstration is streaming now here.

In other news, Gypsyhawk will be celebrating the release of their second album, Revelry & Resilience, with an in-store performance at Vacation Vinyl in Los Angeles, Calif. The album release party/performance is FREE and will be held on August 24th at 8:00pm. Additionally, ‘The Great Food Truck Race’-winning Grill ‘Em All truck will be serving their critically-acclaimed, metal-themed burgers before the show from 6:00pm-8:00pm. Gypsyhawk and Metal Blade invite all fans from the greater-LA area to help celebrate the release of Revelry & Resilience and crush some burgers!


Revisiting the electrifying sounds of bullshit-free 70s rock, Gypsyhawk are a breath of fresh air compared to the endless onslaught of breakdown-obsessed bands cluttering up heavy music. Marinating their wares in whiskey and weed, they hurl out blistering riffs and irresistible hooks and grooves, doing their damnedest to ensure that everyone at their shows is having as much fun as they are. With Revelry & Resilience, their second full-length and Metal Blade debut, this vibe bleeds from the speakers from start to finish, determinedly putting a smile on your face and compelling you to throw your hair around, no matter how much or how little you might have. “It’s music for girls to shake their asses to and dudes to bang their heads,” states vocalist/bassist Eric Harris. “It’s good-time rock and roll, and we don’t take ourselves too seriously, but at the same time we’re not one-dimensional ‘yeah-dude-let’s-party-all-the-fucking-time!’ guys, and I like to think there’s something for everyone in our music.”

Revelry & Resilience will be in stores on August 27th, 2012. Fans can pre-order the album and listen to the first single, Hedgeking, now at metalblade.com/Gypsyhawk.

Gypsyhawk will be performing as part of the Mayhem Festival Cruise alongside Lamb of God, Anthrax, Machine Head, Hatebreed, and their label mates Battlecross, plus many more from December 7th-December 10th. For the complete line up, information, and to book a room, visit mayhemcruise.com.
