The album Great Vengeance and Furious Fire released on Counter Records in late 2007 generated a great deal of interest with songs like That kind of man, Girl, Set me free, Coleen and Dignity, firmly laying foundations for the house of dirt that they are building at present. There is no other band that sound as raw as The Sonics while holding soul in a headlock and frequently wrestling rock to the ground with the weight of Mr 808 as tag team partner. Listen, then try and tell Louis different.
You will not experience another band like this... So dirty. So much weight. So much energy and laced with a soul that you just don't hear anymore...The Heavy have indeed created a monster. The music is enthralling as it takes you on a journey on which you will never be certain... about the destination. The basis of The Heavy sound is a combination of the pronounced backbeat of hip-hop with late-60s soul.Tracks like "How You Like Me Now" and "Love Like That" sound a lot like a few instrumentals on Amy Winehouse's Back to Black. You will enbrace The Heavy's inherent understanding of what it takes to endure this world... and all of the "supernatural" worlds as well.
The band was asked to record a cover of the song "And When I Die" for the fourth season finale of True Blood. The soundtrack for the third season of HBO vampire drama True Blood was eventually nominated for Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media at the 54th Annual GRAMMY Award. In our opinion, this was the BEST track on the CD. Unlike Blood Sweat and Tears' version of the song, The Heavy takes it to the core of what it means to die.The track also appeared on the third True Blood soundtrack. "Who Needs The Sunshine?" and was featured in the penultimate episode of the fourth series of Being Human, "Making History". We are predicting great things for this band.
