Falcon (USA) / Press

“...well beyond the retro-pastiche of most stoner rock, and into some kind of ganjafied time warp... these guys really ARE recording in ’74... smuggling the analog results back to wow a world...harshed on digital sterility... dank, dirty, bedenimed vibe, sparse and gritty, melodic & greasy...”

“So convincingly vintage... 'Castle Peak' blasts some optimum metal. Perry’s terrific slide guitar squawks. You’ll headbang to the driving beat. 'On the Slab' is a tribute to Thin Lizzy’s Phil Lynott. If I didn’t know any better I’d think this was a Lizzy song. How good is this band”

Holger Andrae - Powermetal.de

“...the new album continues where the debut left off, heavy, raw progressive hard rock with epic overtones.”

Vasilis Zacharopoulos - Metal Hammer Greece

“The product of a record collection I can only fantasize about, Falcon’s debut may well have been unearthed in a 1971 time capsule, were it not for the relative youth of guitarist/vocalist Perry Grayson. Also sporting ex-Cirith Ungol man Greg Lindstrom on bass & keys. A retro stoner’s wet dream”

“Falcon consists of ex-Destiny’s End axeman Perry Grayson, Pale Divine's Darin McCloskey, and Greg Lindstrom, ex of freakin' CIRITH UNGOL!!! Intrigued yet? Very much a 70s influenced hard rock/metal album, will appeal to those into Budgie, Thin Lizzy, Cirith Ungol, early B.O.C., Bang, etc.”

“A classic powertrio... true and honest '70s hard rock... Makes me think of bands like RUSH, BUDGIE & MOUNTAIN. A very good hard rocker, only recorded 30 years too late for being a classic today!! Very recommended of course!!”

“Warm old school tones and classic '70s metal vibe are thick on this. At times I swear this is a lost Cirith Ungol record. ...hints of Sabbath, vintage Pentagram and even a tinge of Thin Lizzy, excellent lead work... I'll bet this band fucking kills everything live. To sum it up: this is fucking god.”

Karl Simon - The Miskatonic Foundation

“They kick out the jams ’70s style with heavy boogie, Southern rock groove, Lizzyish twin guitar chops (‘On the Slab’ - featuring a vocal from Pentagram’s Bobby Liebling), creepy proto-doom, early Cirith Ungol-ish anthems... the three come together with a warm, convincing jam room dynamic...”

“What a set! Perry’s leads ’n’ licks were blazing red hot in that vintage Leslie West/Joe Perry sort of way... ex-Cirith Ungol bassist Greg Lindstrom laying down the rhythm while Perry proceeded to torch the place. Great gig.”

“...it's crystal clear that Falcon have carved out a unique niche in the borderlands of hard rock... They are consummate song smiths... Yes, fond memories of the greats arise, but this is no thrift shop copy job, this is picking up the banner and moving forward with it.”

“This disc rules and, brother, I mean it rules…HARD! Visions of names like Budgie, Cactus & Mountain danced in my head... clear, dynamic and organic... Perry ol’ boy has a serious nasty tone going on... but you get the idea. That idea is the removal of the listener’s face.”

“FALCON rocks and rocks hard. I flipped this thing over at first thinking it was a Monster re-release of some 70s obscurity... In fact, I'm amazed that this thing is being released in 2004 myself! Perry Grayson's vocals are deep, and full of dark colors and tones.”

“FALCON deliver again with another scorching slab of retro-doom... Would it be too over-the-top to claim Perry Grayson’s guitar reaches legendary status? ...Riff after riff, the FALCON never seems to release the grip on your brain...”
