Hercules Morse: Equine Size Comparison

Melodic Hard Rock
5.0/5.0

Did they name their band after a character in the Hairy Maclary children's books? The Old English mastiff Hercules Morse who was "as big a horse," ergo also the title of their new and second EP, Equine Size Comparison. I'm not sure, but it's a clever name. Even better, Hercules Morse plays some instantly infectious, pretty damn catchy, classic rock.

Hercules Morse

The five songs within this EP are loaded with all the good stuff. There's an abundance of melody and harmony, from riffs to sweet vocal arrangements. The riffage is brisk and lively, the bottom end sturdy and riveting with groove. Being stewards of the British rock tradition, there's also a plethora of guitar solos. Moreover, as the elements are cast in the arrangements, the songs pop, they reach out and hook from the twists in the riffs to the catchy refrains. Hercules Morse makes classic melodic hard rock brand new again and you want to listen, and you listen with ease. Some comparisons have them dropping some stoner vibe. But I don't get that. Yeah, Asleep At The Wheel or Do It Right have a heaviness, but the simple liveliness and spunk of the music would have you throwing back some brews at a kegger rather than getting stoned sleepy. This is party music, good times and feeling good music. I like it, everything about it. There should be more. Hercules Morse and Equine Size Comparison is modern classic British melodic hard rock of the highest order, and easily recommended.
