Every once in a while you stumble across something that you just
instantly get interested in. That was how it was for me the first
time I heard Heavy Star. I started listen with a totally open mind,
since I had no idea what so ever what to expect.
So when the first song rolled on, with an intro that almost was a
copy-paste of “Hotel California”, I thought to myself. “ OK this
could get interesting if they play really good Southern Rock n Roll”.
Then all of a sudden it all changes and turns into dirty heavy
Sleaze Metal. It has an awesome energy pumping through the
sound that catches you and makes you want more. I get a familiar
feeling of early L.A. Guns and also of Zodiac Mindwarp. Actually
the singer has a lot of resemblance with Zodiac Mindwarp. The
sound is raw, dirty and in your face and it sounds really great.
It´s always fun when you get such positive surprise when you let
your guard down and open your ears and mind to something that
you know absolutely nothing about. And I get really glad then
these things happens. I kind of get like a little child when I find
these gems. That is what I always hope for, albums and bands
that I never have heard of before and that blows me away with
Anyhow Heavy Star is something worth checking out as the songs
are really great and are played by very talented musicians. They
keep the legacy of the 80´s Sleaze very much alive. I really hope
that others will find out about the band.
