Dark Valley Harvesters / Press

“Just because Dark Valley Harvesters are from Yukon, Oklahoma doesn't mean they were always going to have a little bit of country flavor to their music. I mean, hell, The Flaming Lips are from down I-40 just a few miles and there ain't no country in their flavor. It was only when Patrick, Mike and Jimmy added Joe to the mix did the haunting quality of country ballads find its way into the music of this heavy foursome. It's not an overwhelming trait, but perfectly complementary, adding a unique and enjoyable flavor to their music. The primary and majority style of the music on "Seed" is heavy guitar, ass kicking metal. There's more 70s retro, Northwest grunge, and High Desert fuzz in there than anything Garth Brooks, also from Yukon, would recognize. And that's a damn good thing in my opinion because they've crafted a beautiful, compelling sound that wouldn't be as worthwhile without the high quality elements contributed by all four of these gifted, talented rockers.”

“Dark Valley Harvesters are a band from Oklahoma City that surprised me with their rich, mature brand of rock. The album starts out sounding like Motörhead — heavy on bass and rhythm guitar — but then migrates to a Stoner Rock that involves the listener and showcases a lot of talent in all instruments. The last few tracks can be classified as Southern Rock. This is probably the best Oklahoma album I’ve listened to in quite a while.”

“Dark Valley Harvesters is a newcomer hard rock band from the States. They’ve just put out this full-length through bandcamp and filled it with classic southern riffing.”


“Great Stage Presence.”
