CD/DVD Releases: GHz Release Sophomore Album ''Morbid Curiosity''

Posted on Friday, May 07 @ 23:00:00 UTC by nightowl

... 9:30 pm on a Saturday night at a club outside of Washington, D.C. The crowd awaits: a mixture of fans, friends and fiends. Energy builds as GHz gets ready to take the stage, already overflowing with a double bass drum kit and Marshall stacks. The power trio explodes into a Hendrix tune that transports the surprised crowd direct to the Fillmore East, circa 1969. As the applause dies down, a new riff begins - this one original, evoking the spirit of the same era, but with a funky modern vibe. This is the opening track of their new CD and everyone is instantly intrigued. The guitar riff is catchy as hell, the drum groove ferocious, and in seconds the joint is jumping to a song about America?s techno psychosis.

GHz is moving into phase two of their mission to spread the word. The band's new release for 2010, Morbid Curiosity, continues where the first album left off with ten original tunes that combine psychedelic adventure, sonic exploration and explosive playing. GHz writes new material that takes the groove and spirit of early Power Trio, Jam Band and Psychedelic Blues music and revs it up with 40 years of evolution to make a truly 21st Century sound. The tunes are definitely rocking, yet spacious,full of odd meters, explosive improvisation, and eternal cosmic consciousness. The band uses quirky, whimsical lyrics to rattle the cages of the beasts of modern society, and to explore themes of the human condition, fantasy love, and deep madness.

Scott Giambusso's bass lines are incredibly melodic, flawlessly musical and at the same time relentlessly driving; Dan Hovey's guitars are a delicious all-you-can-eat buffet of fuzz, wah-wah, phaser and echo, played with a passion and virtuosity like Clapton or Hendrix on one of their good days; and the amazing polyrhythmic drumming of John Zidar rockets the grooves to Jupiter, and beyond the infinite (and sends DJs and drum machines crying home to mama).


GHz is a heady mix of excellent 'retro' songs in this instance, it's going to be an absolute delight to fans of late 60's classic rock bands like Cream. The band are smoking and you just know you are in for a treat. - Classic Rock Society Magazine, UK

Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Frank Zappa, Jethro Tull, The Doors, and Blind Faith influences shine through like the midday sun through a skimpy negligee - Rock Realms, UK
