God to Gravity - Talk About An Incredible New Hard Rock Release

One of the things I want to post more often about is the music that fires me up.  As most of my readers and friends know, I have a big passion for hard rock and metal, and it is always a great moment when I discover a new band that shines through and through.

One such moment occurred recently when I came across God to Gravity.  The band's members are not so new to the music world, as it includes members whose resumes reflect bands like Stuck Mojo and Tremonti (both of which are also bands I really love).

I ordered the new CD, which you can get directly from the official site of the band at www.godtogravity.com    You can also order the digital version at iTunes.  

I absolutely love this band and release.  It has infectious harmonies, great vocals, positive lyrics, and wonderful musicianship, including memorable lead guitar work (something I find to be rarer in an age where so many believe a display of technical proficiency is more important than a flow that truly grabs you). It has it all, including an arsenal of catchy hooks and a driving hard rock vibe.  

Adding to my joy is the fact that this CD exhibits good production and ... thank heaven ... was well-mastered in a way that preserves the dynamics of the music.  (I've had far enough of the brick-walled mastering and volume wars that pervade so many releases these days.).

Personal favorite tracks are headed by the song "Ready or Not", which I find to be a stunning song musically and lyrically. If I am ever blessed enough to get married, I want this song played at my wedding.  It sums up so much of what I've found to matter and be real in life.   Yes, it is a positive energy song, probably not going to win points with the nattering nabobs of negativity that are often found infesting the comments section of Blabbermouth.net, but I don't lose any sleep over that type of individual to begin with.  Love the positive vibe for sure and kudos to these guys on a truly beautiful song!




My other favorites on this release include "Take What's Yours (Rise Up)", which the band SHOULD put out as a single for sure.  Great chorus and theme!  "Everything's Old" and "Until You Know" also contain a great balance of hard rock, melody, and solid choruses, which are the types of songs I tend to lean toward.

Another track that rocks kick's off the CD,  a tune called "Dying Light":


God to Gravity's debut is an amazing new melodic hard rock release and one that I recommend in a HUGE way to fans of hard rock and heavy music.   I give this one a solid 7 stars!  (Note: I use a 7 star rating system, so this is tops!)

My rating out of 7 possible stars:   7 Stars! *******

Ok, I just listened to some of their tracks and I can see their likeability. thanks, I'm always looking for something newer than by Zep, Who and Pink Floyd standards. Someone you may or may not know is Lizzy Hale and Halestorm. I really enjoy them. Let me know what you think.
Best,
Bill

@William Bentrim. I think Halestorm is a great band for sure! Definitely. And thanks for checking God to Gravity out. I think they are a real breath of fresh air with the melodic elements and vocal harmonies they employ so well in their music. Further, they are a bit of a rarity in that their is a strong positive vibe to their lyrics, really uplifting in spirit and tone.
