Review: Heavy AmericA – ‘Motor Honey (Peace)’



Based in the beating heart of Boston, Massachusetts, Heavy AmericA have built their sound from a diverse range in influences and rock idioms. Leaning on the expertly performed progressive rock circles to the edgy and incisive sounds of alternate rock rebellion, their sound covers a wealth of classic and experimental rock styles that fight to transcend the generic, rock-by-numbers sound. Proudly defying classical categories and labels, the band present an arsenal of sounds and moods that are infused with a spark of natural ability to dedicated hard work.


Their latest release in a series of fiery, uncompromising sounds is ‘Motor Honey (Peace)’, a visceral rock single that easily dominates the mainstream rock scene. Built on a full-throttle attitude and a series of screaming guitar chords, damning bass lines, and a hard-hitting percussion that relentlessly pushes forward.


Calling out to an age of classic rock where heavy, fractured guitars and snarling vocals rallied like war-torn battle cries, ‘Motor Honey (Peace)’ speaks to the more primal side of rock, capturing the energy and sounds of bands like Guns ‘n’ Roses, ACDC, or and Queens of the Stone Age. Offering glimmers at heartier heavy metal that are swept aside by a more pronounced, melodic edge, Heavy AmericA’s new track is a bellowing, rumbling, pedal to the metal anthem.



Defiantly bringing the danger and soul back into rock ‘n’ roll, ‘Motor Honey (Peace)’ is a deft slice of timeless rock that fans of both old and new can enjoy. It’s rough, ready, and not afraid to carry a few hard knocks, making both the song and the band, something to behold.
