Heavy Metal Rabbit

A 8 track post bop album (51m 3s) — released May 13th 2016 on Boomslang

Black is the colour of the rabbit that is being chased across the field. Nimbly, swiftly and
rapidly is he changing his directions, steered by a navigation system that is musically fed
by three individualistic musicians who, according to themselves, have "finally" found each
Lucien Dubuis and Barry Guy have crossed their paths years ago and already back then
realized that there was a special spark. It must have been the 10 hour drive from Poland to
Vorarlberg, the most western part of Austria, in November 2014 that led to the brilliant
idea to form a band. For some time now, Dubuis and Vogel share an extremely fertile
playing field (HANG EM HIGH as Duo FREIWILD) where they, according to their message,
find themselves like two brothers in spirit.
Hence the pleasure of supplementing the team with the legendary men of low tones, Barry
Guy is even bigger. "Already from the first note we could sense that certain something, a
special Swing & Groove", states a very enthusiastic Vogel and by listening to their debut
feature HEAVY METAL RABBIT (Boomslang Records, Feb 2016) you can downright hear their
joy of playing. Yet this album shows to be strikingly structured despite all its freestyle
components. Poetic and excessive can this piece of music be characterized and from time
to time a very unconventional and headstrong humour stands out.
Rumour has it, that Barry Guy has seen a METAL RABBIT hopping across him on his way to
the studio. The word HEAVY came as the logical outcome. But apparently no rodent has
been harmed – in fact, quite the contrary: this band is as vitalizing as a 100 meter sprint
across a field of carrots.
