If you don't know 24/7 Spyz, you SHOULD!!!!!! These guys are just phenomenal! They have NEVER received the recognition they deserve! Coming out of the Bronx, they have been in the forefront of black rock music since the 80's! This CD is no exception to that claim. Jimi Hazel is just flat out WICKED!!!!!! He OWNS the WAH Pedal. You wanna hear some serious Ernie Isley, Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Hazel? Check out this guy. He's ripping it on "ride to nowhere" (a seriously good jam), and Blues for Dimebag. (a fitting tribute to another fantastic axeman taken from us WAY TOO SOON!) All the songs are good, but I have a personal preference to the aforementioned, along with soulsucker, saturday song and of course, stand.

Rick Skatore is a tremendously funky bass player, and Tobias Ralph is holding it WAY down! If you don't believe me, just check out their myspace page!

I saw the guys in a small venue and they ROCKED!!!!!!! If you like Bad Brains, The Busboys, Living Colour, Jimi Hendrix, The Isley Brother, Graham Central Station, Sly and the Family Stone, Led Zeppelin or just good ole funk rock, PLEASE pick up this CD.

As a guitar player myself, I feel Jimi Hazel is incredibly UNDERRATED! He can speak through his instrument and he NEEDS to be heard. Trust me, you'll like him! This is some heavymetalsoul at its best!!

Recommendation: Buy it!

For darn near close to 20 years Jimi Hazel, Rick Skatore & assorted others have been doing a lot of heavy lifting on the soul-metal end of the spectrum. Starting out as an equally skilled, but less manic, Fishbone-like proposition, 1992's _Strength In Numbers_ saw 24-7 Spyz declare allegiance to metal and never look back. Unfortunately record label politics, and continual lineup instability, makes a Spyz album a truly rare event. Last album _Heavy Metal Soul By The Pound_ delivered on both fronts and then some. 10 years later, _Face the Day_ finds the Spyz wasting no more time and getting down to business, quickly dropping four melodic soul-metal monsters right off the bat. The album's title track is a good place to start if you aren't familiar with the Spyz, as all the elements are here, the soaring vocal harmonies, eclectic stylistic changeups, massive, face-ripping riffs and inspirational lyrics. Jimi has never sounded better, both vocally and guitar-wise, and proves to be one of the most underrated of all the metal guitar heroes. New drummer Tobias Ralph proves ready to the task, equalling the nimble beats of previous drummer Joel Maitoza and locking in tight with bassist Rick Skatore. Once again the Spyz do their trademark changeup right around "Faithless," indulging the straight-up funk/soul fetish. "Blues For Dimebag" is a smoking number, with some absolutely wild stunt guitar by Mr. Hazel. "Plastique" and "Anything For You" are fun, ska-infected but lightweight numbers. Two totally sweet covers end the album, an arm-hair-raising rendition of "Bad Reputation" by Thin Lizzy, and a reverent cover of "Stand!" by Sly and the Family Stone with Dug from King's X on vocals. While the production is a little garagey, and IMO the mastering could have done a little more for clarity, these grooves simply can't be contained. You have to give it to these guys for dropping quality music after so long. Welcome back.

IMO the best album by 247 Spyz. Track by track everything is spectacular. Standouts for me are the title track, Blues for Dimebag, Plastique and Bad Reputation. And the SFS cover is pretty happenin.

Tremendous band you've never heard of!
