The Heavy – Great Vengeance and Furious Fire

great vengeance and furious fire

Oh man…this is what I needed.

You hear that?  That sound of new music being dropped?  I love that sound!

I threw this down at a party last night and had people trying to guess what it was.  I got predictions like Lenny Kravitz, Curtis Mayfield, and drums that sound like Led Zeppelin.  Jimi Hendrix got votes, as well as Mark Ronson and Soulive, which only goes to show the range of musical influences you get in The Heavy’s new album “Great Vengeance and Furious Fire.”

The streets are hungry for this, and it hits like thunder.

Other high porints are ‘Coleen,’ with it’s awesome horn section and stomping beat, or the smooth soul of ‘Who Needs Sunshine.’

The five piece band from Western England has been working hard in the last year and it really shows.  The single first single appeared at the beginning of 2007 and the album dropped back in October, so shit has only recently started to filter down to the states.  I wish I had more to tell you about them but since they’ve only been around for a year, there isn’t much out there…yet.  But if you want to rock your next house party, grab this immediately and start spreading it around.

Cheap on Amazon!

Update:  Their newer album, The House That Dirt Built is awesome too!

    The Heavy really caught me by surprise too. And they’re so unknown!
    I think you are aware of the british wave of funk bands. there are more freaking good names in addition to The Heavy.

    I recommend you to try Baby Charles. They’re totally into american 70’s funk and they have a new album out. A must since you like The Heavy 😀

    Baby Charles you say? Well I’ll have to take a listen!
    Thanks for the tip, Simei!
