Album Review: Gizzards & Hearts by One Ton Project http://www.metalmachine.net/2015/04/30/album-review-gizzards-hearts-by-one-ton-project/ Hunter Young Hard Music, News, Pre Orders, Reviews, Streaming

One Ton ProjectToday’s newest puzzle piece in the ever expandingtapestry of metal is Gizzards & Hearts by out-there noise collective, One Ton Project.

This album grabbed me from The Axemanintro, and never let me grab any air. One Ton Project specializes in a jazz progressive style that blends heavy and fucking deep groove into a blanket of wonderful. Jazz plays heavily into their style, with a loose sounding arrangement that captures emotions like a butterfly net. THeir sound is completely tuned to perfection, with clean and heavy wending together over the 12 song record, and it’s going to instantly become a favorite. Right away, Protagonist is my favorite, as its a sad feeling to start, as OTP use some far away vocals, clean and absolutely perfect, and a simple if deep lick to sweeten the ear. When the song turns up, its just one of my all time favorites. The album is fairly long playing, with most songs longer than 3 and a half minutes, but the time doesn’t drag. Other really awesome cuts areJohn the Clown, Blacklight, Deathjazz (has a very heavy intro, and then becomes a dulcet ode of lyrical beauty), and Flight 13.

Their sound is akin to P.O.D., King’s X, Skindred, Sublime with talent instead of Rome, and a slower version of Protest the Hero or Between the Buried and me. Gizzards & Hearts is the perfect meld of jazz, progressive metal, and just soulful music. One Ton Project have a very particular way of playing something that just makes my heart happy, and my head nod along to the beat. It’s neither stupid simple or brutally complex, and allows the listener to enjoy a sensation of styles caressing the pleasure centers of the body and soul, you’ll find this album popping up on your playlists more and more. If you value a craft in the musical world, and want a band that has the chops to compete with ANY band out there, check out Gizzards & Hearts by One Ton Project

One Ton Project recently dropped one of the best albums of 2015 releasing “gizzards and hearts” on May 5th. Based out of Las Vegas and signed to Battleground Records, it was fun welcoming bassist Adam Sage to the Urb Thrasher Flower Hour! Adam and I talked about the recording process, band member chemistry, musical influences and more! The seasoned techniques and developed originality of ”gizzards and hearts” goes beyond a musical label, it’s just 5 dudes that equal One Ton Project.

Le lancement officiel de leur premier opus a eu lieu le 5 mai dernier sur l’étiquette Battleground Records, ONE TON PROJECT, ce dynamique quintette rock originaire de Las Vegas, a lancé son nouveau simple “Protagonist” – la cinquième pièce de leur premier album Gizzards & Hearts. Débutant avec une intro de guitare plutôt mélancolique, cette pièce au tempo lent s’enrichit progressivement de voix superposées, d’une section rythmique solide qui garde la mesure, et de solos de guitares enflammés, mais demeure pourtant une des pièces les plus sombres et les plus sobres que renferme l’album de 12 titres.

Battleground Records a fierement lancé Gizzards & Hearts le 5 mai, et les précommandes ont déjà été envoyées, le CD digipak à cinq panneaux est disponible, une version vinyle clair 180 grammes à tirage limité est aussi offert. Gizzards & Hearts est également disponible sur iTunes, Amazon MP3, Spotify, Google Music Store et sur toutes les plateformes numériques pertinentes.

Les princes du groove de Vegas, ONE TON PROJECT, profite de cette occasion pour introduire le reste de la planète à leur cocktail éclectique et énergique de rock qui puise ses racines dans une manne d’influences diverses, par l’entremise de leur extravagant premier album, Gizzards & Hearts. Des histoires énigmatiques nous sont racontées, au son d’un mélange nerveux et moderne de jams rockés faits sur mesure pour la scène.

Sachant générer une ambiance de fête grâce à leur répertoire aux styles variés, les structures traditionnelles du rock et les voix chaudes et gorgées de soul se fusionnent aux rythmes envoûtants du reggae, aux breaks de jazz, au timbre aigu des gammes orientales, pour aboutir à des mélodies accrocheuses qui contrastent avec les paysages soniques du post-rock progressif et les phrasés bluesés, Auto-produit au cours de plusieurs années dans le bric-à-brac rempli d’instruments divers que le groupe avait désigné comme son propre studio, Gizzards & Hearts vous offre presque cinquante minutes de moments boogie tout en douceur et en chaleur, agrémentés d’éléments soul, qui vous donneront le goût de vous mettre sur votre trente-six et d’aller bambocher en ville,

Customer Reviews

Refreshing rock album & poignant lyrics

This burgeoning rock band (well, “rock” is not a singularly identifiable label to attach to One Ton Project, which is a good thing) is a group of very talented musicians out of Las Vegas, which by sound alone is clear they take their craft very seriously. This self-produced debut album reflects the many long years of dedication to the skill in creativity and personalization of each instrument, which is reflected in a masterful blend of vocals, lyrics and honest-to-goodness guitars and drums found in the collection of tracks. While unapologetically rock and roll, it is also experimental, alternative and groovy, and in turns poetic, introspective, transcendent, cautionary, melancholy and defiant. At the moment little-known outside of the southwestern US, this album deserves a far ranging and diverse audience. It’s fresh. It’s different. It’s good.
