Biography

“What the hell were we thinking?,” exclaims Dan Taylor, guitarist for U.K. indie soul-rock titans The Heavy, of the band’s audacious new album, The Glorious Dead, to be released on Counter/Ninja Tune on [date TK]. “We wanted to make a bold statement – it’s not shy, but a beast unto itself.” “It’s over the top, but in a good way,” adds ...

5.0 out of 5 stars BANG! 25 Oct 2007
By S. Drew
Format:Audio CD
I first heard this band on Radio 1 and couldn't resist buying the album.
As soon as the first track hits your ears, you simply know that you're in for a treat. You can hear real influences of early soul whilst enveloping the experience into a modern funky/blues set that has moved with the times. With driving beats, smooth vocals, catchy riffs and basslines,
Great Vengeance is by far the 'heaviest' collection of music this side of creation.

So when we heard that there was a band from Bath, UK who has just released their debut album of bluesey funk-rock we didn't think much of it. Another lite-weight Primal Scream rip-off we thought. The first spin of 'Great Vengeance....' transported this reviewer 3000 miles West of Bath into the fried and epic sunset of California via New York, Mississippi and Detroit, which is something considering that the likes of Fleetwood Mac and Led Zeppelin were rotating previously on the office stereo. `The Heavy' are a four-piece who specialise in creating a highly authentic brand of dirty neo-blues fused with a swaggering hip-hop/funk-laden groove and wailing/torched vocals straight from late sixties freak-out era. On top of this they tweek and shred their guitars to create a psychedelic edge to proceedings which acts as the icing on the cake.

Of the 10 tracks on this 33 minute album, none disappoint and all contribute to one awesome experience. Early on, listeners are treated to `Colleen', a unique track employing a gritty hip-hop beat and clanging percussion which acts as a backdrop to vocalist, Swaby's emphatic and raw melodic wails. `You Don't Know' starts off with dark and heavy riffage which brings to mind 60's forgotten heavy-psychedelic innovators `Parson Sound'. This foreboding, almost metal-sounding soundscape meanders throughout the track and psychedelic guitars join proceedings to create an extremely raw and heavy ode to `Comets On Fire'.

`Girl' sees Swaby performing some `tongue-in cheek' Streets-esque rapping about a rather fit sounding bird. In the middle, Swaby switches to singing and the transformation is quite amazing and perfectly showcases Swaby's immense vocal talents.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sounds like... 25 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
Quite an enjoyable album by some talented folks... but i can't help the feeling that almost every track is cobbled together from songs by artists the band has been inspired by.

Some of you will of course have heard of The Heavy way before now, but for some reason they managed to skip below my radar, cos if I'd heard them before I wouldn't have hesitated to buy right then and there! In this case, I heard 'Big Bad Wolf' on the BBC series Luther, and although that particular song isn't featured on this album, it at least introduced me to their sound and got me hunting. Eventually resulting in me buying both this and their newer album 'The House that Dirt Built' - which is equally as good.

For anyone who likes The Black Keys or similar, this is broadly speaking the same kind of thing, but with their own style, and a style that I like. By all means try out a few of their songs (particularly Big Bad Wolf!) before hand, but I'm hoping it does the same for you as me!
