MDPR Clients: MOTIVIK - DEATH OF THE GUNMAN - Reviewed By My Revelations ! Check it out here at this link: https://www.myrevelations.de/2020/12/20/motivik-death-of-the-gunman/
MOTOVIK (in the promo info they even try to explain the strange band name, you just can't do it) have come to save your soul. You could at least think of the band's Christian background and one or two statements by the band. Whereby tape is a little broad. Ryan Roebuck takes care of the instrumental side and shares the vocals with Courtney Simmons.
But let's ignore the mentioned aspects and dedicate ourselves to the music of the duo from Atlanta. This creates an ambivalent impression. Roebuck messes up numerous influences into a kind of Groove Thrash Metal, as the band describes itself stylistically. Everything is well done, but the bottom line is that the common thread is a little missing. And the dualism of two quite decent singers is not enough to carry the entire record. And so, when listening, phases in which I really like the record alternate with phases in which the performance seems rather arbitrary and just doesn't trigger much. In any case, I liked the opener “Injection” best, especially because of its slightly doomy insertions and the vocal performance.
The bottom line is that MOTIVIK present their Groove Thrash on “Death Of The Gunman” without any real common thread and, despite the sometimes good approaches, leave a rather ambivalent impression. - My Revelations
Well we made it to the end of the year, and what a crazy year it has been. Aside from all the craziness, Roxx Records still kept the music coming with almost 40 new releases this year. Many of which have been brand new artists and brand new music. And we are not quite done yet….
Roxx Records is excited to announce our last full release for 2020 the brand new release from Atlanta’s very own Motivik. How do you say Motivik? (MOE-TEE-VICK) what does Motivik mean? Motivik is derived from the word Motive. And what is the Motive of Motivik? To rock you hard with a message of hope and encouragement for a lost generation.
Motivik features Ryan Roebuck handling the music and vocals and Courtney Simmons on vocals. That’s right dual vocalists, modeled in a way much like Gary Lenaire and Guy Ritter from Tourniquet except they pretty evenly share the vocal duties. If you ask Motivik what there sound is like or what their style is they would say they are ‘Melodic Groove Thrash’. A little more on the thrashy side if you ask us, especially when you listen to the bands cover song from Sacrament ‘Souls in Torment’ featuring a guest appearance from Sacrament’s very own Robert Wolfe. Check out a sample of the track here.
Well we are happy to be bringing you the bands debut full length effort entitled, “Death of the Gunman” and it will be coming your way before the end of 2020! If you love thrash, groove, doom and rock all spun together and cooked up with catchy hooks be sure to pick up a copy!
The first single and lyric video are out now and have recently been serviced to magazine and radio. Check out the first single ‘Away’ and request it wherever they play hard and heavy Christian music.
This one is right around the corner and releasing officially on December 18 just in time for Christmas. Pre orders are live now and at the incredibly low introductory price of $9.99 Pre Order Here! https://roxxrecords.com/
