This modern rock outfit singer is Richard Haitz-lead vocals/guitar; Lyle Simmons-guitar/backing vocals; Juan VanDunk-bass/backing vocals; Joey Tressler-drums.
HAITZ's music can be described as a mix of hard rock, heavy metal, with a touch of industrial. With heavy guitars and undeniable rhythm, their music is a combination of cadence and creative lyrics that is displayed at their live performances and captured on their albums.
Every so often a band comes around with a certain uniqueness that grabs you from the opening song, and then gets better with each listen. Every song represents a wealth of rock and heavy metal music styles. The fascination with this new breed of modern rock musicians is their instinctive ability to connect many genres of music, thereby shaping and molding it into something all of their own making.
The album captures HAITZ's unique sound, with guitar riffs attacked from every angle, addictive rhythms, and compelling changes. There is never a break, mistake, or missed note. Perfection is the word and music of this nature grows inside itself, and it will grow on you with each spin.
