Gypsy – Twisted Levity

Twisted Levity
by Charlotte "Lotty" Whittingham at 22 January 2015, 2:24 PM

Writing for a website is mainly Metal dominated is a great thing but it is refreshing now and again to receive something on the lighter side of the spectrum.

Before I go into great deal what listening to “Twisted Levity” was like for me personally I have got to say that a Hard Rock act from India is quite a rarity at the moment and I do hope there will be more to come. I am of talking about GYPSY; a five piece Hard Rock band from Calcutta, India.

With influences from legends such as DEEP PURPLE, SKID ROW and IRON MAIDEN they are off to a good start. I am hoping this will see them breaking into worldwide exposure.

The EP kicks off with “Gimme Your Load” that gives the listener a taste of their music; it’s certainly very old school sounding with the dirty sounding riffs on the guitars, classic solos, vintage sounding vocals and smooth drum work.

There is a good selection of music on the EP such as “New Boy In Town” and “Turned Into Stone” that transport you back in time to the seventies with their antiquated sound.

With this being said this EP sounds a little bit average; like everything I have heard once before but I am sure if they explore more into their sounds they could produce something huge. Seeing their influenced by some stadium giants I am wondering if they give it a modern twist somehow.

Overall this EP gives GYPSY potential to climb up the music ladder but in my opinion there needs to be more work done and they have a long way to go, as it didn’t exactly grab my attention. The EP marks a great attempt to make their mark into the world of Rock and Metal community.
