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! *******
