Video Pick: Voltagehawk - Straight Razor

Fun part about writing reviews is continuing to find new bands to explore. I was sent this new music video by Voltagehawk for their newest song, “Straight Razor” and it sure is a head-bopper. Heavy riffs and explosive solos in one song – not much more you can ask for. Let’s dive into this song!

From the beginning it instantly captures you with the raw guitar and steady tempo. The excitement from riff to riff keeps you in tune for what is to come next. I felt the chorus was super catchy and I actually caught my self singing “BABY DON’T PLAY” when I knew it was coming. The melodies in the bridge to the chorus has a nice transition. To be honest I wasn’t expecting such a sick solo. It builds on top of itself so well second time second. Overall a hard rock song I can see myself throwing on a playlist. It looks like they out a ton of work into the motion graphics of the music video as well. Very flashy and grabs your attention right away, just like the song. I enjoy live show music videos and what they did with different angles and the lyric graphics on top was top notch.

Overall I think this was a pretty sweet release from Voltagehawk.  Give "Straight Razor" a spin and lets us know what you think!
