Lykaion: Heavy Lullabies

Heavy Lullabies is the follow up to Lykaion's 2012 effort, Nothin' but Death, an album which I reviewed as, "a pretty straightforward hard rock record with good tunes and there's nothing wrong with that." According to the peeps at the prolific Inverse Records Heavy Lullabies, "represents a firm step forward compared to the debut album Nothin' but Death. The result is a perfect balance between scratching sounds and straightforward melodies who will easily stick in your head after just one listening."

One song which certainly proves this point is the somewhat infectious and erm…anthemic "Anthemic" and this is followed by the quite lovely and melancholy "I Don't Love you Anymore" which a) isn't a Quireboys' cover and b) with a less accented and cleaner vocal has," potential hit" written all over it. A feature of the album is the solid guitar playing throughout and "Waitin' " features some particularly fine noodling towards the end and "Smile" proves that the band definitely handle ballads well.. The second half is perhaps not as strong as the first but as a whole Heavy Lullabies is a notch up from Nothin' but Death.
