Flying Fortress ‘Bitchwind’

flying fortress

Flying Fortress is singularly unique in how seamlessly they meld heavy metal and punk. Certain tracks (“Fast Mover” is a good example) feel like staring at one of those optical illusion drawings (e.g. “Is it a rabbit or a duck? I can only see one at a time! Is it morphing back and forth before my eyes? Could it be both at once? Is that even possible?!”).

Plus it’s just a hell of a lot of fun. Stoner metal overtones enter in on occasion as well… only to be layered with NWOBHM leads. And yet it all feels completely organic, catchy, and not confusing at all.┬áRockin’ good times.

Bitchwind is out now via Uncle D Records. Check it out at the Flying Fortress Bandcamp site.
