about

"It’s hard to judge a band by a mere three-song EP, but within that meager allotment Black Wing Halo manages to deliver a smorgasbord of amusement and intrigue.
Welcome to the Show seems to be compiled of three of the bands’ most disparate songs. I assume the reasoning for the selections was to show the bands full range, and that it does, but the result feels more like a mini-compilation than an EP.

The title track is an amalgam of dissonant Primus-like carnival barking buffered with languid Tom Petty-styled twang in the chorus. “Rats” shifts gears with a supercharged early-Butthole Surfers punk riff. And “Youth” slows way down with a somber and intense tune layered with Vedder-ish vocals to cap off the disc, but ultimately proves to be sonically thin. The one common thread between the songs is the mileage decibel. wrings from the megaphone-distorted vocals, coaxing punk flavors one moment and big bluesy backing vocals the next.

Don’t get me wrong, each of these songs is fun and fascinating on their own. But together they make a rather peculiar menagerie. There’s a lot of interesting things happening on Welcome to the Show, definitely enough to make one curious about their forthcoming full-length album. Black Wing Halo demonstrates a wide berth of influences and talents while maintaining a veil of mystery around their precise musical identity. No doubt their LP will be more revealing; we can only wait until then to find out who Black Wing Halo will really be." - Review by David Feltman, Target Audience Magazine
