Artist: Leroy Powell and the Messengers
Album: The Overlords of the Cosmic Revelation
Label: Cleopatra Records
Release Date: 08/07/2015
Leroy Powell is nothing short of a good time. He’s a former guitarist for Shooter Jennings and a cast member on A&E’s Crazy Hearts: Nashville. Classic rock and country is what Powell is all about, with strange/fun lyrics and face-melting guitars. The Overlords of the Cosmic Revelation is an album that could be the soundtrack to a cult classic movie musical (Flash Gordon, anyone?).
Get seated and sit back during the introduction of “Weightlessness.” Then hold tight as “Time Flies” gets your journey with this unique music started… into outer space. Every song is a blast to listen to, so highlighting the standouts is difficult. Powell himself claims this album can cure diseases, give you a ticket to Heaven and set you free if a cop pulls you over. This may not all be true, but why not just find out for yourself?
Your rock n roll experience will never be the same after this journey with Powell and his Messengers. Don’t get too overpowered by the mystic radiation.
