ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Harley Van Kirk has been singing and performing since the age of 16. His professionalism and well sought after vocal talent gained him much respect in the hard rock genre of music.

In the 80s, he was vocalist for a band called SURGICAL STEEL, that performed with the fury of such metal acts as JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN, and QUEENSRYCHE. Knowing, and performing with the members of Judas Priest, Harley absorbed true professional insight towards performance. Through these influences, Harley forged a style and sound that is what metal stands for. Mainstream metal is where Harley stands now.

Due to the prevalent exposure one can attain through the world wide web, Harley stands out within the growing industry of independently released new artists. His new contribution, is the conceptual album: THE NEW MESSIAH.

This album deals with a hypothetical individual that goes through life, and acquires the pieces of the puzzle, to come up with what truly upholds an interesting and enjoyable album.
You can hear new released material here: www.messiahsreign.us

Thanks,
Harley J. Van Kirk

Great heavy metal vocals on a dramatic Queensrÿche style bed of epic and atmosph
After spinning this disc a few times, the songs have really grown on me a lot. The tunes are catchy, dramatic and atmospheric (think along the lines of the verses to "Jet City Woman" by Queensrÿche - in fact, Harley displays a strong Geoff Tate influence, moreso than a Halford one, though he had trained with Halford and the backing vocal screams are very Halford-like) and the production is interesting in that Harley does all the instrumentation on his computer, yet manages to get good authentic sounds and adds some very cool spacey effects!

One other thing that stands out on this release is the vocals are the main player here, as they should be, for this is Harley Van Kirk's forte! The music may be generated, but the vocals are purely human and incredible at that. The vocals are more than just the star player here - they are world-class in terms of heavy metal quality. They are not your run-of-the-mill, dime-a-dozen johnny-come-lately drivel. They didn't call Harley "Leather Neck" for nothing!

Are there any negatives? Sure, as with any new release from a rising artist. The drums could be more intricate and involved and there could be more up-tempo metal rockers, and a real metal guitar could take the place of several of the synth textures... but then it would not meet the purpose of displaying the vocals over an epic, spacey/spiritual tale! Perhaps with future projects, Harley will explore such things, but for now, this is a great start for an independent musician and the future looks quite bright for a rising voice in the arena of mainstream metal!

Long live the Harlinator!
