Gypsy are a band from India that plays an old school mixture of hard rock and heavy metal and this is a review of their 2014 ep "Twisted Levity" which was released by Transcending Obscurity India.
A very hard and heavy old school style heavy metal and hard rock sound starts off the ep and it has a mid 70's feeling at times along with some melodic clean singing vocals and the solos and leads continue the old school and retro approach to hard rock and heavy metal that is a very huge part of the bands musical style.
Most of the songs on the recording bring in the heaviness of NWOBHM and mixes it with the more mainstream style of American heavy metal which also adds in a touch of hair metal and you can hear traces of early AC?DC or later period Deep Purple in the bands musical sound while some songs bring in more of a traditional approach to classic rock along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and one of the later tracks towards the end is a power ballad.
Gypsy plays a style of heavy metal and hard rock that is very close to the mid 70's sound while also bringing in a touch of the 80's as well as being heavy enough for the real metal heads and melodic enough for the more mainstream fans of the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Gypsy are a very great sounding old school mixture of classic/hard rock and heavy metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Shoemaker" and "Judgement Day". 8 out of 10.
