Seeking: Bookings, Film/TV Placement
Style: Hard Rock

Rockin’ hard n’ heavy right out of the gate is Canadian band Scarecrowz, whose muscular, no-frills attack is all guitars, bass, drums and lead vocals that echo Metallica’s James Hetfield. The group’s gang vocals, however, are what really make an impact, as on “Bull By The Horns,” a rousing, upbeat, call-to-action song. The softer, more thoughtful “Skywalk” emulates Alice in Chains and has very nice guitar tone, fat electric bass, and those great gang vocals whose chorus conveys a powerful spirit of camaraderie. We were let down by the chorus of “Let’s Party Tonight,” which turned out to be too obvious and, well, invites the listener to party tonight. Well produced, solidly performed, tried-and-true hard rock, plain and simple.
