CD Review: Heavy Glow Lets Out A "Midnight Moan"
Heavy Glow keep the power and energy from their past releases while featuring a more mature heavy classic rock sound. The lead song "Lose My Mind" seems to en-capture the band's sound from 70s rock icons like Foghat and Black Sabbath which carries over into the deep, dark "Slave Dance". The combination of Joe Brooks on bass and Dan Kurtz on drums gives a moodiness to the songs with Jared Mullins on guitar guiding the way. The song "All My Money" combines a southern rock vibe with the natural heaviness of the band's sound. Mullins' vocals on "Collide" sound like Axl Rose, while the slight distortion on "Purgatory Blues" sets the tone for this heavy blues romp. The acoustic "Smithereen" shows a softer side to the band before closing with the powerful rhythm of the 7-plus minute "Diggin' A Ditch".
