I’ll admit, I haven’t really looked into these guys at all. A quick search in Facebook turned up a lot of bands with the name Black Thunder. They were found on accident when searching through Bandcamp. These guys play heavy blues based riff rock. Think The Heavy Eyes. What more can I say? Listen for yourself, these guys are the real deal.

This album should already be a staple in your constant rotation. If it’s not, there’s no time like the present to get it. The Heavy Eyes self titled debut is easily one of the best releases in 2011. You can read our review of it HERE. To sum it up though,
This album is a heavyweight. Wimps need not apply. It’s good, it’s real fucking good. The Heavy Eyes self titled rocks harder than a virgin at a porn convention. Don’t believe me, listen for yourself below. The download is $5 but it’s worth at least $50. It’s 40 minutes of your time well spent. Trust me!
