Editorial Reviews

2008 U.S. pressing of the British band's album features one bonus track. The Heavy's dirty, guitar-scorched Hip Hop Soul will lead you into temptation. Hailing from a town in the English countryside called Bath, The Heavy make everything wrong sound right. At the core are Swaby and Taylor, who have known each other for a decade. When they met, the two bonded over vintage Rhythm and Blues and the films of Jim Jarmusch. They soon recruited Ellul (drums) and Page (bass) and began gigging as a four-piece; most recently Hannah Collins joined to round out the sound. Counter.

This a great band and a great album! It's rare these days to hear a complete album, but they did it. Every song is solid. They also accomplished something bands like the Stones, Zep, and the Beatles did so well...they wrote an album that has many different music styles. Funk, punk, soul, garage rock, and blues are all represented. Im not saying The Heavy are on the level of those other bands, I'm just pointing out, they know how to mix it up. Great album, but it now!

you MUST check this album out. for fans of 70s funk and the latest indie rock. its heavy, steamy, passionate, funky, upbeat and rhythmic. i see funk making a HUGE comeback based on this group. i defy you to not move to track 2 "Colleen" or 4 "That Kind of Man".

this band hails from Noid, England, and their music has flavours of gnarls barkley, danger mouse, james brown, sly and the family stone, cee-lo, bootsy collins, and more.

Luckily, my sister is always hip on the best music and she passed this gem along to me. Because, otherwise I would never have heard of this awesome band. Gritty, dirty, FUNKY soul rock would be the only way I could describe this album. Great for driving, dancing, cleaning, drinking pretty much great all around. I do really wish The Heavy would make a new album soon!

If you are wanting something that sounds straight from the 70's with crushing drums, scratchy vocals and hard guitar rifts, then snag this little gem. A nice blend of garage rock and funk. Great Vengeance and Furious Fire is the first album by Heavy. That Kind of Man, and Colleen are my personal favorites; but the entire album kept my attention. Looking forward to future works by this band.

I want more! I downloaded this gem from listening to one song and now want more! Lotta funk mixed in with a great rock sound that sort of has semblance to Jack White and the Raconteurs. I ranked this a 4, but would give 4.5 if they allowed. Enjoy & play loud!

I was listening to Michelle Myers Saturday broadcast on KEXP a few weeks back and she played an infectious cut from their follow up album "The House That Dirt Built". Usually music needs some time to grow on me but the song Short Change Hero cut deep with an intoxicating groove that sent me on an instant quest to search them out.

They have a nice blend of blues, funk and rock that defies categorizing. This is hands down one of the five best CD's I have purchased this year rivaling their sophomore "The House That Dirt Built". Do yourself a favor. If you purchase no other music in the next year get one (or both) of The Heavy's releases.

I'm stunned this album has received anything but 5-star ratings from Amazon's reviewers!
Bottom line, The Heavy's debut is superb. It's gritty, it's fun, it's hard to overplay, it's great for driving, solid top-to-bottom, refreshingly well balanced (as far as musical styles they incorporate), and just plain good.
I've been giving copies out to friends and the response has been only positive. Don't hesitate. Buy this album and thank G-d rock is alive and well :)

(Incidentally, they're even better live)

I saw The Heavy at Gearbox's Borderlands 2 launch party in Dallas and was blown away by their performance. I immediately went out and bought all of their CDs.

Great Vengeance & Furious Fire is a good album. I can listen to the entire CD without skipping a song. However, I think there's only one big hit on this CD, which is Colleen. The others are fairly average to me. The two other albums (The House That Dirt Built and The Glorious Dead) out at the time of this review's writing have at least 3 hits on them.

That being said, this album is well worth your money!
