Spokane Washington is probably the last place you’d think of for a haunting melodic metal band. But that’s exactly where Heart Avail are from & what they do.
Having just released their new lyric video Pink Lace (the last track on the E.P)is a stonkingly good track.
Aleisha Simpsons voice has the power & range of Sarah Brightman coupled with Irene Jansen.
Greg Hansoms guitar tone is bright with a lovely mid range crunch as featured perfectly on the track Vacillation.
Danny Bartletts drums have some great progressive & groove orientated patterns, especially on the opening track Broken Fairytale.
Mick Barnes is a formidable bass player. Not just a very simple & clean bass tone, the runs he performs alongside the keys of No Remorse & the rest of the track are seriously impressive.
Clocking in at just 30 minutes, this grabs you firmly by the short ‘n’ curlies & leads on a journey that is inspired by loss, grief & remembrance of those that are no longer with us. This isn’t a melancholy experience in the slightest. It’s a full on celebration.
The production & the mix of this E.P is superb & sounds huge. We’re already awaiting a full length release.
