Hangarvain are a Rock, Southern Rock, Alternative Metal, Post Grunge band from Naples, Italy. The band consists of Sergio Toledo Mosca- lead vocals, Alessandro Liccardo- guitar and backing vocals, Francesco Sacco – bass and Mirkko De Maio – drums.
In the last year or so, I have come across a good few bands that hail from Italy. Now, Italy has been stepping up their game, especially when it comes to the Rock and Metal front, as the country has been producing some amazing bands in the last few years. When I put Hangarvain’s Roots And Returns EP on, to get an impression of what they have created, I was immediately surprised at what I was hearing. When I listened to this EP for the fist time and got to the last track, I was OK, this a great cover, that cover was I Heard It Through The Grapevine by Gladys Knight and the Pips, and also by Marvin Gaye (Marvin Gaye’s version is more famous of the two).
Now, over the course this six song EP, I listened to it a good few times, and Hangarvain has created a brilliant piece of work here, from start to finish. The songs I have found that I liked or I have found interesting are: all six of them I liked as each one is different and the band brings something new to each track. The songs that are on the EP are: Roots And Returns, Apple Body, Love Is Calling Out, Give Me An Answer, The River, and I Heard It Through The Grapevine.
This EP from Hangarvain is brilliant, as it has some damn good guitars, drums and vocals on it and it is well written performed and recorded. I would highly recommend that you go and check Hangarvain out on their Facebook page, as you will not be disappointed.
I would give Hangarvain and their EP Roots And Returns a 4.5 out 5 for an amazing EP.
