GYGAX: Debut LP From Act Founded By Former Gypsyhawk Frontman To See Release Through Creator-Destructor Records; Track Playing At Decibel Magazine

Image
Creator-Destructor Records is ultra-stoked to announce the impending release of Critical Hits, the debut LP by California-based quartet, GYGAX, and Decibel Magazine is helping usher the first single into the public with an exclusive stream of "Draw Breath."GYGAX is a no-frills, classic rock/heavy metal hybrid, heavily steeped in the imagery of fantasy literature and role playing games, and rooted in the musical stylings of metallic '70s rockers Thin Lizzy and Deep Purple, with equal parts metal and boogie-inducing groove. Though their name is attributed to the creator of Dungeons & Dragons, the band has described themselves more simply as "a beacon and an anthem for anyone who's interests lie in creativity and the powers of imagination."Hailing from Ventura, California, GYGAX was born out of the ashes of vocalist/bassist Eric Harris' previous heavy-metal brainchild, Gypsyhawk, whose Patience & Perseverance 2xLP also saw release through Creator-D…

The lyric video was created by James Shomo.Watch GEARS's "Face Down" lyric video below:

Face Down is a song about how people tend to portray themselves a certain way in social media, when often they're quite the opposite. It's about that moment when someone breaks down, takes to social media for a rant, but when the smoke clears and cooler heads prevail, try to erase the evidence and return to that fake portrayal. We all know people like this. - Jimmy Wooten (Drums)Follow GEARS:Official Website
