"Combining the sound of Thin Lizzy, Hawkwind, and Lynyrd Skynyrd with - somehow - just a few average dudes out there to return music to the people that appreciate it, Gypsyhawk is a band's band, a fan's band...and a god damn rock band when rock and roll needs it most. In a time when music is shoveled down your throat, Gypsyhawk backs up the walk (and mabye a little swagger) with rock. The band's first show in their hometown of Pasadena, Calif. yielded an enthusiastic and devoted crowd, showing the promise Gypsyhawk holds in the palm of their hands...well, as soon as this next solo is done. Then they'll have a free hand.... Turn down the lights and turn up the tunes indeed."

"Gypsyhawk, an L.A.-based band intent on recounting and representing the elements that made metal so enjoyable in its infancy: twin guitars, melodic vocals, killer grooves and solos. Lots of solos."

"...They are seriously playing from the heart, and Harris's world-weary vocals belie life experience beyond his years..."-City Of Devils-

"Picture Thin Lizzy, Deep Purple and Slough Feg jamming over brews and doobs behind a wall of amps and twin guitar leads, and you get the idea."

"This is the type of material that makes it clear that, had Gypsyhawk been an obscure and under-acknowledged band actually from the 70's and this their album, it would be considered a stone cold classic and be fetching insane sums on e-bay.... A band to watch, if they can grow from here it's going to get scary good."

Scorpion Child
matter where they play, when The Child take the stage they bring the
noise.. Their sound heralds back to early 70's hard psych-prog (Sir Lord
Baltimore, Lucifer's Friend,Night Sun,BANG) with
a modern twist of metal and doom. For those who have witnessed the
band's live set words like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and James Gang
spring from their lips. Layering high-energy, heavy twin-guitar riffage
over a pounding rhythm section with a singer that's a cross between
Robert Plant,Ronnie Dio and Blind Melon's Shannon Hoon has built the
group a passionate, dedicated and rapidly growing fanbase.

Scorpion Child are from lots of different places, not only logistically
but musically. "We're from St. Louis,Austin,Wichita, and Houston," says
lead singer Aryn jonathan Black describing the band's roots. "Our
influences are diversified as classic rock and 80's thrash metal to old
school southern delta blues along the lines of Blind Willie Johnson,
Lemon Jefferson and Willie McTell." The five-piece call Austin, Texas
home since forming in the summer of 2006.

The music world may be crowded, but there's always going to be room for
The Child's frenzied freakouts and dark melodies,that flashback to the
boneyard of classic rock."
