The Skinny: Lion Splicer is a New York duo whose new EP dubbed Valkyrie came out two days ago, on March 21st. Composed of 20 year old Max Splice (lead guitars, bass, and vocals) and 17 year old brother, Danny Splice (drums) the twosome are self-proclaimed: “ugly and hairy young brothers … thrashing and burning in the vein of their maverick heroes Zeppelin, Zappa, the Foos, X, the Waste, and the Dan.”
The new disc was recorded at Little Mouse With A Big Cock Studios in December of last year and mixed and mastered in Bath Spa, England by Nathan Long. And while The EP only contains three tracks, it should come as good news then that the band is planning to drop a full-length later this Summer. Using this Final Fantasy VII-inspired free download of the song “Sector 7 (Return to Reactor)” as an example, Lion Splicer offer a melding of speedy heavy metal, prog and 70’s-era punk to produce some fast-paced, high-energy tunes. Grab a beer and prepare to rage!
