Product Description

HAWK EYES are from Leeds. They consist of Paul Astick (vocals / guitar), Rob Stephens (guitar), Ryan Clark (bass) and Matt Reid (drums), and have done so in some form or another since 2005. Well, since drummer Matt joined from Whores Whores Whores anyway. One of those previous so-called forms was Chickenhawk, whose gruesomely complex Modern Bodies album of 2010 cheerily brutalised a not-so-innocent generation of grumpy grunged-up kids as they toured the known universe with Alexisonfire, We Are The Ocean and The Computers. The end of 2011 saw the renamed and reconstructed HAWK EYES foursome setting out their stall for future ever-so-slightly-mellower chaos with a nomination for Best Hard Rock Act at the Artrocker awards, touring fun with Turbowolf, The James Cleaver Quartet and Ginger Wildheart (though not all at the same time, you understand) and the release of the five-track Mindhammers EP on Brew Records, a manically precise fusion of ferocious melodies and vivacious riffs which spewed forth comparisons with Foo Fighters, QOTSA, Alice In Chains and the epically heavy monstersound of Faith No More. All extremely true, and all very indicative of a band growing up and rolling with the melodic punches. And the Mindhammers template is refined and rewired on Ideas , HAWK EYES debut album which is sleek and modern and hardcore and suitably post-post-everything, but also cosmic and mischievous and never averse to (ab)using a classic riff here or there.

Ideas is a rollercoaster ride through all that is good about rock music. Hawk Eyes have made an absolutely explosive record - the production, musicianship, vocals and songwriting are all superb. The band have trimmed the fat and created a classic album that on first play recalls defining releases like Therapy? "Troublegum", Melvins "Houdini", Sepultura "Chaos AD", Metallica "Black album", Future Of The Left's 1st album. The opener "Witchunt" is an instant classic and their best song yet, "Skyspinners" is the catchiest thing they've done, the band's punch-you-up prog/hardcore roots are still in there (Yes, Have Some; Milk Hog), and "Headstrong" shows they're not afraid to mix it up and slow the pace. If you like your music heavy, catchy, packed with mind-bending riffs and shout-along choruses, get this record!

I have longed for a new British band to follow other than Pulled Apart by Horses for quite awhile now, and it just so happens that I found them.

Hawk Eyes are a Leeds-based - just like PABH - four-piece that know how to articulate ideas in such a way that they never get stale. I must admit, there are some Mathcore-esque licks on this album that aren't to my taste, but I admire how it changes the direction of the piece. I'm a big fan of the tempo and time signature changes, however.

If you're in search of something new to listen to that'll keep you on your toes throughout, buy this album!
