BUTTERFLY: Melbourne, Australia.
Melbourne based hard rock band Butterfly couldn't have picked a better title for their self released debut album. Doorways Of Time contains nine tracks that are like a portal to the past, the seventies and sixties to be more specific, a time when hard rock music ruled the earth.
This vibrant outlook on Doorways Of Time (Self-Released) is further reinforced by some fun musicianship. The guitars draw the most attention, constantly interjecting harmonies and solos in Thin Lizzy tradition with riffs that are tight without losing a sense of swagger. The rhythm section is also rock-solid as the drums are busy without getting too intricate and the bass is consistently beefy. These elements can make the vocals easy to overlook in comparison, but the melodies are engaging, and the occasional falsettos do a lot to flesh out the otherwise workman delivery.
