Do you like Children?
I don't particularly like either, but that didn't stop me buying it...
On its arrival, there was a sticker on it saying that this was a release for fans of "Graveyard, Rival Sons and Led Zeppelin"
I suppose it may be, but Graveyard are much more of a Lo-fi 70s proposition than this lot with a more 80s production job.
Rival Sons? Oh, heaven no, what an over rated bunch of up their own behinds retro furrow followers.
Led Zeppelin? You're avin' a Giraffe! What this reminds me of more than anything is KINGDOM KLONE, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
To me though it reminds me more of Tesla those Sacramento veterans which again is no bad thing.
The first couple of tracks really remind me of songs by other bands, but my fading memory can't place them and to me it isn't until "Antioch", "In the Arms of Ecstasy" and "Paradigm" that the band sound like Scorpion Child and not somebody else.
So, all in all not too shabby and despite a four star rating - I'd say I was being generous there - it's a cautious BUY. Depends on how much you like being reminded of other bands.
Do not let the above review put you off, a view which is as "childish" as the original reviewer's own comments.....
If you like "classic rock", then this album is for you. Its not a band merely copying their influences (Rainbow, Led Zepplin), but a band making music whilst wearing their influences on their sleeve.
It has an authentic 70's rock vibe, which is driven by the excellent vocal range of the lead singer, who very much sounds like a young Robert Plant. The band is tight, powerful and their musicianship is second to none.
I bought this album on a whim. I glad it did, as it certainly brightened up a wet Friday morning.
Well what can I say Scorpion Child definatly seem to be showing everyone that rock is not dead and you can still make a stunning album.
So, Scorpion child are very influrenced by the 70's rock scence. You can definalty hear Led Zepplin and at time Black Sabbeth in there work. But dont think that means they have copied them. Some how they have taken everything that has come before them and made it there own.
The opening track on the Album Kings Higway builds you up for what the band is all about and it just flows into Polygon of Eyes wich is just a stunning track. But not all tracks are very rocky. Antioch is far more relaxed track but it just shows that this band can do diffrent styles, which is exacterly what you need to showcase on a debut album.
The Last track on the deluxe edition Keep Goin i think is just really a monster of a track just trying to show all bands that have gone into creatig there own unique sound.
If you have heard evern one track by this band and liked it, I would definatly recomend this album to you as it is just stunning. I have been listering to this album more than any other album since I have got it. And this is proberbly the best album I have bought this year so far.
I read of Scorpion Child being mentioned in the same breath as Rival Sons and Graveyard, and being a big fan of those two, i wasn't disappointed with Scorpion Child in the least.
Every track is strong. If you love old school rock (be they new or old bands), these guys deserve your full attention.
We'll worth checking it out!
Great tunes on the first play that then get better with each listen. Classic early 70's sounding songs that sound fresh and relevant.The riffs are like your favourite songs but different - 'The Secret Spot' reminds you of Kiss' 'Watchin' You' but isn't - and the vocals are Plant-esque without sounding like a tribute singer / act. Altogether a must have purchase.
I absolutely love this band and am just sorry that I've caught them as late as I have (missing a few gigs in the process). Great live (Hard Rock Hell Dec 15), brilliant follow-up single, desperately awaited next album - don't be a "Jeff" - get on board today !!!!!
