Chicago Rocker, Henry Metal, is the one-man machine who delivers the epitome of an unpredictable dose of musical sarcasm throughout the release of his latest album, ‘Metal O’Clock’. Opening with the initial feel of romanticism and swiftly switching gears into a blast of banter, Henry Metal has had it with bending over backwards for another and makes it well-known that he has thrown in the towel throughout the first track, “I Don’t Care”. The second track, “Trash Your Head”, shoves listeners right into the pit with furious force over wild guitar riffs and lyrics that give off the tone of tempting another into danger. “Odin” is the third track which is the equation of towering evil as Henry Metal mimics emotive ballads from bands such as Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Metallica.
Continuing to crack smiles and stir up laughs within listeners over the fourth track, “For the Love of Freyja”, Henry Metal takes it a step further to make an elaborate attempt to create a fictional character that he desires out of spite to the love songs that fellow rockers dedicate to their loved ones from a place of sincerity. “Thank God for the Government” is the fifth track which reaches hilarious and shameless new heights over lyrics that dabble into how going through security at the airport gives off the impression of a more intense experience than the major disturbances around the world that are being looked over by those in charge. The sixth track, “Addicted to Junk”, lyrically shoves the reality of consumerism into the throats of listeners over stellar guitar-play that takes the track to a dramatic level that gives off the energy of individuals falling into the trap of receiving a rush through distracting themselves from themselves by constantly purchasing “things”.
“Gettin’ Messed Up” is the seventh track that rushes into blistering and lightning-fast guitar speed that riles up the feeling that comes with getting ready for a reckless night out. Closing out with “Plastic Surgery”, Henry Metal cunningly adds in distortion to poke fun at a mind that is contemplating taking a ride to the other side and permanently adjusting their physical figure to feel a false deeper sense of life enhancement.
If you’re a fan of rockers such as Motley Crue, Poison, Skid Row and Cinderella, then gear up for a good laugh over ‘Metal O’Clock’ and dive into the rest of Henry Metal’s oddball musical creations on Soundcloud.
