Black Skies hits it out of the ballpark with new album On The Wings of Time

The third album from this kick ass band is ready for the masses. On the Wings of Time is a head banging punk rock ear fest with a loverly heavy grunge metal tinge. It's hard to put it in just one category. It's a loud cacophony of guitars with understated vocals. It's music to lose yourself in. Tim Herzog's drumming propels you into ethereal grayness while the twin vocal attack of Michelle Temple and Kevin Clark do a vocal tango. Michelle is part Siouxsie Sioux and part Exene Cervenka. Her vocals are a great compliment to Kevin's "strait man" Tom Waits style - if Tom Wait was into heavy rock. The music is forceful and moving, eery and moody, it's stripped down and unabashed. This is music for the soul. It's meant to be played loudly - on vinyl if you can.

Until you find the disk to turn, pick up Black Skies On the Wings of Time from It's the best $5 you'll ever spend.

The band is hitting the road this month. I totally suggest you check them out!
