Henk : Owl Maker is a power trio from Connecticut who self releases a first EP with 'Paths Of The Slain'. Six songs on the album that are a mix between seventies hard rock and heavy metal. The band has a good singer and guitarist in Simon Tuozzoli. In itself the songs are also quite okay, it's just too bad that it's all a bit messy. Just listen to the beginning of 'Witches'. That intro is really a mess. Also, a bit of a strange song as suddenly a kind of black metal growl is used. The potential is there, but on this release it is only scratching the surface.
