Gypsyhawk  


For every band either on the cutting edge of metal, or content to ride the latest fad, there's another that relives past glories. Debuting in 2010, Gypsyhawk is squarely in that latter camp, with a style that is really little more than a homage to classic 70's hard rock/metal. Thin Lizzy is the clear influence here (there's even a song, "For Those Who Love The Lizz" that is nothing more than a heartfelt tribute to Phil Lynott's crew), though Eric Harris' rumbling bass lines are far more to the forefront than was usually the case with Lizzy. Elsewhere, there are fine twin lead guitars, husky vocals, and songs that, while not simplistic, are pretty much to the point. On the strength of their debut album, Metal Blade snapped them up for a followup, 2012's Revelry & Resistance.
