ISTVAN ''Clowns'' Best of the year 2009 on HCR Radio Seattle HCR Supported Bands Show, 03 Jan 2010. !!BEST OF 2009 SHOW!! SuLE * NONE LIKE US * ISTVAN * ... and MUCH MUCH MORE! ''Clowns'' is playing on number 4 out of a 150 new supported Bands from 2009.
MIcControl's Jon Ostrow Album Reviews: Istvan has created genuine songs that combine the heavy hitting chords of early metal (Black Sabbath), the heavily effected palm-mute style rhythm guitar (Van Halen) and the strong melodies and harmonies with a lyrical focus on people, human nature and society (Pink Floyd)- after all, the title track is called Clowns, an obvious nod to people's behaviors today. As a songwriter, Istvan really hits the mark here. But it is Istvan's use of accents that show his true talent. Istvan has really shown some mastery of Rock n' Roll. In the end, Clowns by Istvan is really an album that anyone who is a fan of classic metal or classic hard rock should take a listen to. These songs are, without a doubt, well written, well arranged, and most importantly well performed. FOR MORE INFO ON ISTVAN, CHECK OUT HIS PROFILE RIGHT HERE ON MICCONTROL.COM
