A refreshing take on old-school heavy guitar rock, complete with monstrous riffs, wailing leads, and thundering drums, and topped off with a good dose of prog-leaning ear candy and stellar musicianship from all 3 members of this power trio.

Turn it Up!
Arrival By Walt James Band is good old Rock n roll. This cd has a ozzy sound to it. The guitar is raw and raunchy. Only seven tracks is the downside. Play Loud.

Analog RULEZ...throw out the digital......

Stellar old school and refreshingly new on top of that....Check it out.
