Formed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the Fall of 2016, Jakethehawk is a band with feet firmly in two camps. Their time on stage in direct support of acts as diverse as Italian doom giants Ufomammut and Maryland soul-rock riffsters Lionize illustrates this. The heavy-riff oriented style hearkens to the heavy rock and metal scene that pervades the underground. Shunning the in-your-face barbarism of modern mainstream hard rock, Jakethehawk takes a cue from bands of years past, focusing on emotive, colossal riffs that appeal to both the heavy metal fan and casual listener equally.
Looking beyond the simple, low end fuzz of so many of their forefathers, Jakethehawk feels kinship with modern psychedelic and post-rock movements. Soundscapes, layers, and textures color the music; driving the wall of sound onward inexorably toward some distant horizon.
