This Holy October
Coming up with a catch phrase, or clever description of music you worked for years creating is very difficult and can never do the art justice, no matter how poetic the description or phrase is. But my attempt to describe Rochambeaux and what this album is all about is below. This Holy October, is a hard rock armada of sound anchored by a dark and heavy rhythm section, highlighted by insanely melodic lead guitarwork, and helmed by a vocal mad man who switches between clean, precise singing, and dirty, aggressive growling. Rochambeaux seamlessly mixes elements of decades old heavy metal with modern hard rock/metal to create an ecclectic sound that should satisfy the heavy music fan looking for something familiar, yet a little different in today's sea of music. If you like the best of the last 25 years in hard rock blended into one identifiable sound, you should thoroughly enjoy this album.
