HORSENECK ‘Heavy Trip’ Review, Official Video & Album Stream

Facebooktwittermail


I have been a longtime fan of the Post-Rock/Hardcore band Will Haven from the moment I first heard them years ago so it was a no brainer for me to check out Horseneck recently when I saw they had connections to WHVN. Those connections are in the form of present and/or past members of not only Will Haven but Chelsea Wolfe as well but to be honest, that is where any and all comparisons to either band should be stopped. In fact, comparisons should not even be actually made because Horseneck is one of the more uniquely stand-alone bands I have heard in awhile. The sound they have is unlike most anything else happening in the heavy rock, alternative, or what have you scenes..their music is as diversified as it gets. And what it gets here is fantastically rocking and energetically intense and I really don’t know what labels or genre quantifications to throw at you to properly relate what the hell is going on here with the “Heavy Trip” debut. Guitarist/vocalist Anthony Paganelli, bassist Lennon Hudson, guitarist/vocalist Lance Jackman and drummer Jess Gowrie meld elements of Post-Rock, Aggro-Noise Rock, Hardcore and, believe it or not, Classic Rock. Hell, they even have synths, organs and horn sections at times and man, oh man does it make for some amazingly fascinating music on this album. This album, “Heavy Trip” being exactly what this is with the ten tracks of dense heaviness recorded by Lance Jackman (Will Haven) at The Dock, mixed by Scott Evans (Kowloon Walled City) at Antisleep Studios and mastered by Carl Saff (Big Business, Helms Alee, Russian Circles) at Saff Mastering. It will be issued on February 17th on CD, cassette, and digital formats.

Some past and present members of the bands Will Haven and Chelsea Wolfe have re-surfaced in the California-based Sludge/Post-Hardcore band Horseneck. The band has a very forward-thinking style of heavy music that at times even incorporates keys, organs, and horns into its overall sound and that is quite evident on the song premiering via an Official Video here today. “Michael Caine“, a track from the band’s upcoming “Heavy Trip” album planned for self-release on February 17th on CD, cassette, and digital formats. You can also stream another song, “Bobby Brown“, in the Bandcamp embed below as well.

The band commented on the song “Michael Caine” saying: “This track is about the feeling you get after a hard party night. Like next level hard party night. When it doesn’t stop, and maybe you’ve made some horrible decisions, but you keep going and going and going. You kind of forget who you are at times. You wake up the next day and say I will never do that again…. but we all know you’re lying. We all do it again. The video was just a fun way to show the party animal in all of us.”
