CD Review: Gypsyhawk Debut With "Revelry & Resilience"
The album begins with the blazing duel guitars of “Overloaded” as the band plays loose and loud. Gypsyhawk get into a ZZ Top groove on “The Fields” as the band’s overall sound dates back to the hard rock seventies of Thin Lizzy and Deep Purple. The band’s song-writing for this album have been influenced by the George R. R. Martin novels “A Song Of Fire And Ice” as noticed in “Frostwyrm.” Gypsyhawk lets some of their progressive-rock ambitions slip in to “Night Songs From The Desert,” before finishing the album with the heavy metal, guitar driven “State Lines” and a spot on cover of Johnny Winter’s “Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo.”
Gypsyhawk have live dates almost every day in September and they will also be aboard the Mayhem Festival Cruise, performing alongside Anthrax, Hatebreed, Machine Head and others.
