Hellride Music, September 2003
- by Chris Barnes
Huge-riffed hard rock bordering on metal, fueled on alcohol, good bud, and
Carlos Castaneda-ish mysticism-meets Bukowski-like drinking tales, all steeped
under a hot Phoenix sun. This is Greenhaven.
Although I only have two songs to go on, “Southbound” and “Supernature”
are very, VERY impressive. “Southbound” reminds me of Zakk Wylde via Ted
Nugent, and “Supernature” reminds me of Zakk Wylde via Ted Nugent
experiencing peyote-enhanced visions with Tony Iommi under the desert sky. The
first is pure balls n’ testosterone, the second marked with heavy, chunky
riffs and percussion, all conjured with a slightly lysergic and doomed tempo.
If this is any indication of the true songwriting talent of this band, expect
good things to come in the future.
