Honky, 421

I never heard the power trio Honky before. After digging in with their new release 421 (MVD 5556A) I am no longer a stranger, and glad of it.

The Austin, Texas, outfit plays boogie and riffed metal with fully drenched guitar and bass walls of sound, heavily driving drums and lead vocals that sound a little like Lemmy of Motorhead.

This is the hard stuff with songs that hang together and lots of torque. Metal heads will gravitate, but it's convincing even if you aren't a die-hard of that music. The lead guitar work is quite respectable and the band has a nice togetherness.

Very good stuff if you are in the mood.
