New Band To Burn One To-Mighty High
Are you looking for some ass-kicking classic-rock inspired punk/stoner/metal with a lot of cowbell? Well, you have come to the right place. As stated on the band's MySpace page, "Mighty High is a classic-rock inspired punk/metal band from Brooklyn, NY dedicated to getting loaded and playing loud."
The band has been together for 5 years and just recently released their debut album "...In Drug City" on their own label Mint Deluxe Tapes. The album features 12 drug-induced slabs of punk rock mayhem. Combining the stage energy of hardcore punk rock legends Black Flag with the classic rock riffs of Grand Funk Railroad, the band's overall sound can be best described as "Black Flag Railroad".
It is really hard to say which songs on the album really stand out, because they are all really fun to listen to. I must have listened to the album at least 4 times in a row. The songs are catchy and melodic, yet heavy enough to feel like you just got kicked in the skull. But if I were to point out a few, I would have to say "I Live To Get High", "Hooked On Drugs", and "Stone Gett-Off".
One interesting thing to note about the band was that the band was formed and named without singer/guitarist Woody High even knowing how to play a single note.
The band has toured extensively with the likes of Mess With The Bull, Puny Human, and most notably the only band to ever share the stage with Thor and Valient Thorr.
So now do yourself a favor, go burn one and check this band out!
