The Hawkeyes rip the chord to entertain us on ‘Wanted Man’

The Hawkeyes rock in with their latest rock infused song called Wanted Man.

The Hawkeyes of Pittsburgh in the USA is a steel city rock 4 piece powerhouse band that forges a pure unique blend of driving rock, rust-belt grit, and big stage headlining attitude persona.

Ripping guitars and pulsing rhythm propel the band’s raw and working-class roots and constant desire for growth. This song is all about knowing who is wanted and who is innocent. Only a wanted man would run and this band ain’t running from nobody. They are on a mission to entertain.

The band’s mentality is one that is focused on elevating to the biggest stages that any working/touring band could imagine but also pays an endearing tribute to its working-class rock ‘n’ roll roots that draw inspiration from the city in which it has lived in, worked for, breathed and loved. I love this mentality and fighting attitude no matter what.

Taken off their latest album ‘Ever for After’, ‘Wanted Man‘ is a fiery rock thunderbolt through the sky and into our souls. This band really rocks and I love the fire in their music style. There is a lot of grit and determination from the Pittsburgh group The Hawkeyes who just make awesome tracks.

‘’Stand up’’ is Pittsburgh Metal Rockers ‘Changing Tymz’ new smashing single with positive message

Didn’t you hear the voices crying out?

Changing Tymz’ are an American Hard Rock/Metal band, from Pittsburgh, the home of ice-hockey in the USA. A loud band, with lots of solo’s, they are really going for it at the moment and clearly love playing together.

The band brings a mix of power metal, and today’s modern metal riffs for the younger fans enjoyment. This is an act with a lot of passion and you can see from their music that they give it all while on stage.

They officially released their 5 track EP in February of 2020 and are now in the pre-production stage of their full-length debut album. I’m keen to see how the album sounds but for now, let’s enjoy ‘’Stand Up’’ for what it is. This is a united song about being together during dark times, a poignant message while living in 2020.

CHANGING TYMZ has dropped single Stand Up

Hailing from Pittsburgh, five-piece band CHANGING TYMZ has released their single ‘Stand Up’ infusing that rock/metal style through thunderous instrumentals and raucous vocals.

Kicking off with a bang, and the electrifying shred on the guitar adding in that powerful bang on the drum to create this loud and intense instrumental.

The instrumentation is insane and this band isn’t afraid to kick it up a notch and make sure to bring it louder whilst getting heavier. With the vocal ranges, they’re always at heightened volume, with that gravelly texture to them. When the instrumentation and the vocals combine together is what gives this track that suspenseful feeling that intensifies as the song goes on.

Always giving the instrumentation their time to shine, towards the end letting the guitar and the drums completely take over and illuminate the background. Completely smashing the shred on the electric guitar and adding in that hard-hitting drum beat as they come together and create this heavy and powerful instrumentation.

Listen to CHANGING TYMZ Stand Up by heading on over to YouTube now.

Wondu Proves He Is The Boss

Any musical genre is built on two forces. One playing by the rules, coalescing the genres traditional sounds and accepting its place in the pack, the other pushing the boundaries, testing new waters, beating fresh paths through previously uncharted territory. Wondu is defiantly in the latter category. Yes, Bossman Freestyle is built around a hip-hop vibe and a rap punch but not like any you have heard before. This is hip-hop stripped to brutal and basic building blocks, the beats and the lyrics, and then put back together using stark and edgy street raps and just enough music between the beat and the vocal delivery to smooth things over.

Many artists falling into the loose urban collective try too hard to push boundaries and fuse genres which have no place being intertwined. Usually this is the sonic equivalent of dropping a hand grenade into the middle of the listener’s expectations and then trying to rearrange the debris into new and pleasing shapes. Sure, you really shake things, and then some, but you also find that the result is normally, well…a total disaster. Wondu is happy to work in more familiar territory he just has the ability to strip things back to basics, make things more intense, more honest.
