Hard Rock/Heavy Metal
What do you get if four veterans of the Danish rock scene get together bringing decades of experience into the mix? The answer is Timechild; Denmark’s latest darlings of hard rock who have released their debut studio album ‘And Yet It Moves’.
Timechild are a band which are transmuting heavy metal power with hard rock riffage through a style and production which transcends time with its vintage 70’s songwriting and contemporary production which brings to life those big riffs as tracks such as ‘This Too Will Pass’, ‘Last Frontier’ and the title track blast the listener with melodic hooks. These hooks ooze and drip with the likes of Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Black Sabbath as vocalist Anders Folden Brink shows he has a golden larynx and at times that when subconsciously listening, you could swear that it was David Coverdale or Jørn Lande. Yet, this isn’t an album which spends all its time looking backwards like many of the other ‘classic rock’ sounding bands. There is plenty here that looks forward with its excellent twin guitars and backing vocals almost perfectly crafted for a return to the live arena in a post-Covid-19 world which demands a fist in the air with one arm and a beer swishing about in the other.
Sure, ‘And Yet…’ may be a little safe and predictable, but that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable. If you like big hooks and singalong songs, then this Timechild debut is for you.
