Press Release :
The hairs on the back of your neck are standing up. And not just your neck. On your arms. The small of your back. The backs of your legs. Is it fear or something else? Something a little harder to admit to? What's that over there? Are you scared? Wishing you hadn't come down to the woods? Or actually, secretly, glad that you did?

Welcome to The Heavy, kings of a kind of (West) Country voodoo soul which mixes and matches Curtis Mayfield, RZA, H.P. Lovecraft, Stax, Led Zeppelin and Screamin' Jay Hawkins into the kind of cauldron-melting potion which is utterly original, haunting, weird, sexy and unsettling all at once.

Hailing from the poor, insular and dark countryside which surrounds Bath, the Heavy sound both possessed and insinuating, a kind of stealthy wickedness which overflows from their debut album, "Great Vengeance & Furious Fire". First, though, comes their single, "That Kind of Man".

A furious hip soul stomper in which wall upon wall of guitar is rammed up against tight horn riffs and the remarkable vocals float above the melee, "That Kind Of Man" is the perfect introduction to the Heavy's unique sound. Superficially, "Coleen" sounds nearer to classic soul territory but there is a UK rawness to the sound, an edginess that makes it pure Heavy. The package is completed by "Easier", a more laid-back, bluesy version of this band's distinctive template.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.
