February 10, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA – Henry Metal has released his 7th studio album, “Deadlift Cowboy,” which will be widely available in the coming week. “Deadlift Cowboy” is a surreal and absurdist addition to the heavy metal and hard rock canon which pushes the boundaries of style and theme while remaining true to the rock song format. The album melds rock song structure, honest comedy, metal virtuosity and the heart of the singer songwriter.
“Deadlift Cowboy” takes its time and makes its point without filler, noise gimmicks or non-sense. It’s a continually pushing musical journey which captures out-of-the-box choices and harnesses thoughts that are rarely voiced in an industry where everyone is dying to be liked and commercially viable. The internet has given Henry a unique opportunity to fit in with people who don’t necessarily want to fit in with a contrived status quo, and that following is smoldering and growing as the weeks pass.
The Henry Metal ‘labor-of-love’ project debuted less than a year ago to date and has released 7 full-length albums and a compilation album, “The Essential Henry Metal, Vol. 1.” He’s the childhood student of a well known guitar shredder and his mis-spent youth included hanging around some of the best studio musicians and metal labels in New York City. He found his voice in the heyday of rock and metal and champions uncontrived songs and a dedication to the rock album format.
