Lute FP Killer heavy blues rock. The guy has a fantastic voice, the songwriting is excellent, the overall sound two thumbs up.

Evidently the lead singer of The Heavy Crawls, I like this solo effort considerably more. The only critique I might have is it sounds like a collection of recordings occurring over a period of time. There is a cohesiveness lacking, but each song is fantastic in its own right so it really is simple nitpicking on my part, nothing more.

Killer voice, killer guitar tone!

about

New album by Max Tovstyi - founder and songwriter in The Heavy Crawls.
Release by Nasoni Records/Clostridium Records (Germany)
Available digitally, CD, LP

credits

released October 8, 2018

All songs written by Max Tovstyi. Recorded, mixed and mastered at BrokenBricks Studios (January 2017 - May 2018).

This album consists of 10 songs and two bonus tracks (12 songs in total) that were recorded by Max on all instruments except for violin and trumpet. The style is a mixture of blues, classic rock, psychedelic, progressive rock with 60's vibe but modern sound and approach. All songs are very different, Interstellar Girl and World of Sin are definitely 21st century music while From The Blues to The Funk, Wait Till Tomorrow or Show Me The Way are the songs that will bring you to Woodstock era if not earlier!

Please, be sure to listen to Make Up Your Mind. This song need 6 singers to be recorded as well as this is the only song that has notes for the orchestra. It took 8 months to write, record and mix it.

LP release is made by Nasoni records, catalogue number NASONI 200.
Also available on CD this summer.
