Warhawk: Metal name, soulful sound
You could be excused for expecting an outfit named Warhawk to be a metal band. But while these guys clearly share influences with many metal merchants — you'll hear a bit of Black Sabbath's edgy darkness and more than a dash of Pentagram's gritty boogie — they sound more like a long-lost hard-rock band that successfully made the transition to punk, then moved on to something else. It's possible that they cut their teeth learning Thin Lizzy songs or interpreting choice cuts from the Cult's Electric: Singer/guitarist Alex Eschen, after all, has a vibrant, soulful voice not unlike that of Ian Astbury. Catch Warhawk this Friday, February 15, at 3 Kings Tavern.
