4.5 stars - unique and mesmerizing progressive metal 28 juin 2014
Par Justin G. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
2006’s The Locust Years is the third album from US progressive metal band Hammers of Misfortune, one of the quirkier and more interesting bands in the American progressive rock and metal scenes. At this point in their career, Hammers of Misfortune featured Slough Feg vocalist/guitarist Mike Scalzi. The band also included female vocals (and bass) by Jamie Myers on this album.

Hammers of Misfortune is a progressive band in the truest sense of the term. This isn’t just metal with keys or yet another Dream Theater clone. If you’re looking for a modern comparison, think Spock’s Beard plus Blood Ceremony. It’s the past that they get their cues from though, drawing obvious influence from bands like King Crimson and early Genesis. It’s like old school prog rock with just enough metal crunch and some dramatic vocals from Scalzi and ethereal vocals from Myers. The Locust Years is a dizzying listening experience, defying genre restrictions and expectations. It’s quite accessible though, and an easy album to lose yourself in.

Hammers of Misfortune is one of those bands that just about any fan of progressive music – rock or metal, new or old – needs to experience. If your tastes run to Pink Floyd, Ayreon, Spock’s Beard, King Crimson, Porcupine Tree, Pain of Salvation or any point in-between, you’d do well to give The Locust Years a try. It’s an amazing album from a criminally underappreciated band.

Edition Notes: Metal Blade’s 2010 reissue of The Locust Years features the song “Church of Broken Glass” as a bonus track.

9th on my best of 2006 list 15 mars 2007
Par Miss N. Thrope - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
whoo! I could imagine a sticker on the outside wrap of this album stating "Banned In Crawford, TX."! But of course, that would mar the lovely art on the cover.

What is inside the package is quite a surprise. This band from Oakland, CA successfully blend traditional and progressive heavy metal with power metal plus a little Broadway show tune theatricality thrown into the mix for a bizarre gumbo.

If I were forced to have to describe this band I would call them socio-political power metal. They employ a lot of the power metal styles, just minus the lyrical themes of dragons, damsels and daring doo-doo.

The lyrics here are incredibly incisive social and political commentary, laced with splashy, dramatic melody. The opening and title track begins with chromatically descending theme, some pretty sweet riffage, and outrageously concise and intelligent lyrics condemning the hubris of the current administration and GOP playbook. Here, our current leaders are painted as propagandists and war profiteers as found in the up-tempo anthemlike third track "Trot Out the Dead". Set up as their own brand of religious jihadists in "Chastity Rides" and again "War Anthem" (which contains a very clever "drum line" percussion solo mid way supplied by drummer "Chewy").

Many of these songs are set against music that is up-tempo and full of melodic hooks. It would almost sound humorous if the lyrics were not so tragic and true. The music skirts other territories as well, borrowing from folk music "Famines Lamp" and doom, as in the gloomy "We Are the Widows", to great dramatic effect. The vocal work on this album is exceptional, with Sigrid Scalzi and Mike Sheie providing the respective male and female leads.

The instrumental seventh track "Election Day" lets the musicians display their abilities. The Hammond organ arpeggios supplied by keyboardist Sheie are particularly tasty and backed by a great gonzo guitar duet courtesy of John Cobbett and Scalzi. It is a total classic. The final track "Widow's Wall", which begins as a piano ballad and builds to a flourishing rock opera finale, ends things perfectly.

I have a hunch that this album has staying power, despite the fact it was written with current events in mind. I fear the lasting reverberations of our national folly will continue to keep "The Locust Years" relevant for a long time to come.

very unique 15 janvier 2008
Par JOHN L. KOWAL - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
What I like about this album is that not only does it contain the band leader of SLOUGH FEG but it is a traditional METAL recording wrapped up with some flair of organ, piano, female vocal melody and acoustics. The production is excellent and the overall sound eminating from this is very expansive - much more appreciated than the European symphonic pompousness.

The only reason why I gave this 4 stars is that it was a bit dry or lackluster in certain parts with generic power metal riffs, but overall, I found this to be enjoying. Who said that American Metal is dead? Wipe away the stupid "metalcore" gunk and you will find a great gem from THE HAMMERS OF MISFORTUNE.

Beautiful and Earnest Metal 31 mars 2012
Par Eli C. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This album is classic. Anthemic and sweeping, both musically and lyrically, it has both ambition and the skill to pull it off.

Good but somber 11 octobre 2008

Kind of sad sound but good like Nevermore and similar group. Very different and worth checking out.
