Heavy Glow is a hard rock band that features a rock trio foundation. Headed by Cleveland-born Jared Mullins, the band makes use of musical influences such as Queens of the Stone Age, Cream, and several other bands that contain a very heavy feel to their music. Currently, the band is promoting their newest release entitled Pearls & Swine and Everything Fine. Although the lineup for the band has changed since the band released their most recent album, the band’s lineup on the album consisted of Jared Mullins on vocals and guitars, Joe Brooks on bass and St. Judas on drums.
Pearls & Swine and Everything Fine begins with the track “45 Shakedown”. Right from the very beginning, the track finds the band creating music that fits with the rest of the band’s previous energetic library of music. With the heavy feel of the bass from Joe Brooks on the track, there is no getting around the fact that the band lives up to their moniker as Heavy Glow definitely has a heavy approach to their music. Along with the heaviness from the bass, the track features a very groovy musical approach from the guitar of Jared Mullins. The track brings to mind a combination of something from Canned Heat with the Blues flavor to the track and the power of the trio setting from the band Cream.
