"Send In The Hero" by Shaun Mykal Walker
A heroic song for trying times
I had the opportunity to review Shaun Mykal Walker, a multi-instrumentalist who created his own unique genre he coins "Alternative Soul." After treading this description, I was intrigued. I had no clue what to expect, and I was eager to find out.
SEND IN THE HERO embodies much more than just the description of "Alternative Soul" - it also just straight up ROCKS! The track starts with a sick guitar riff, followed by intense, rocking drums with echoes of old-school ska. There's a bit of the best elements of early 2000s alt-rock/emo bands which is awesome. The bridge takes a turn with a more eclectic guitar solo around a harmonic minor scale. It grabs your attention and doesn't let you go.
Shaun Mykal Walker's soaring vocals sounds like Thirty Seconds to Mars meets Panic! at the Disco, meets Sublime. It's really unique and you have to check it out to fully grasp it! SO QUIT YOUR READING AND START YOUR LISTENING!
