Fresh off the alleged news that he may be out of Soulfly, masterful guitarist Marc Rizzo has launched Hail The Horns. Well, heck. I used to write for a magazine called Hails & Horns, so I guess I am required to like this band. U would have anyway!
The trio features Marc Rizzo on Guitar/Voc, Tony Campos on Bass/Voc and “Opus” Lawrence on Drums/Voc. I am guessing there isn’t bad blood with the Soulfly camp as Campos plays with Dino in Fear Factory these days and Dino is the one doing Soulfly’s next tour instead of Mr. Rizzo.
Anyway, here is a Kiss cover. The Melvins version is still my favorite but this is a solid take on “God Of Thunder” with some chunky and shreddy sprinkles on top! Hails, indeed.
Anyway, Marc is one of the absolutely most talented guys in rock and I wish him all the best with this project and his future. I can’t imagine Soulfly has an easy task ahead recreating his flamenco and classical influences, if they will even attempt it.
