FOZZY:  CHASING THE GRAIL

This is a far removed band from their cheesy piss-take beginnings, this is a professional outfit with some great talent and forceful presence, no hint of wrestling or homage to the sport in sight, in fact, as per the interview, this is all very separate in its class and style.  Unlike his on screen persona, Jericho proves to be no coward, attacking some challenging and superb vocals with confidence and really nailing it, this is a huge change in the dynamic of the band, No longer are they clinging to covers or pushing fun tunes with some class, this is driven heavy metal.

This is not however original in its style, of course not, there are thousands like it, but this does a job of holding its own and managing to keep afloat among a sea of similar acts on the verge of obscurity, in fact this band have returned with instant credibility.  Sure, the (current) WWE champ’s  presence in the band has helped springboard the band and get it recognised, but its the superb work of the dynamic duo of Rich Ward and Chris Jericho that keeps it up.

The release isn’t without flaw, some tracks don’t really hit the mark (I’ll let you decide which) but overall, it’s a great release with some good strong choruses, great fusion of euro-epic and American-hard rock!

  1. First point I have to make is that getting in touch with the “Reverse Current” team isn’t easy, so you may want to look at sticking up a “contact us” page. Now that said I’ve been sitting here keen to roll out some stuff for the website as I’ve managed to score some nice networking opportunity (office head on !).

    The next thing is that I used to submit article to the old Headbang and the plan was that I would do so again with RC, however as I’ve lost touch with Baz I’ve been unable to get things sorted.

    Basically I need some help in being able to get stuff on-line, seem to going around in circles as far as that’s concerned.

    I’ve now got a “really” good contact with “Onslaught” and I’m hoping to catch them in the studio, combining an interview with some video footage.

    I’ve also found someone else that’s keen to “join in”, a friend of mine that goes to a lot of local level gigs and really knows his rock history, if your interested.

    Regards

  2. S’up John!

    Sorry about the whole lack of a contact page thing… I’ll get onto it, in the meantime drop me an email at mrbogle@reversecurrent.com and I’ll message you with my number and some more details.

    Good to hear from ya!
