THIS IS MEGA METAL MUSIC LIKE NO OTHER!
Reviewer: Saucy Muse
Close your eyes and watch the music unfold stories of inspiration! Haitz wrote incredible new music blending metal with funk? I have been lingering around the radio stations for something to hit me hard like this, though I didn't know what I was suppose to hear! Now I know! This is what I should hear on KROQ 106.7!! I haven't grooved in the car or at home and felt enthusiastic about music in such a long time. The cadences of the lyrics are dynamic and uplifting. I found myself loving the songs more and more with each listen. The music is Olympic and well written; out of the box writing; breaks away from the cookie cutter song writing that is published now! Movies and TV would love this stuff; I imagined action and suspense scenes in my head. The songs are vivid, expressive and striking and I sure hope their record label makes them giants!

“HAITZ performed a 40 plus minute show with just about everything that they had on their CD entitled Indetify. Their songs written by Richard Haitz were well written and arranged. Three songs impressed me - Deeper, Down and It’s Not Easy. Their sound was very full and round at Paladino’s…So go and check HAITZ out – you will enjoy them and they will grow before our eyes. Keep up the good work HAITZ and don’t let anyone keep you down.”

Pulse of Rock Identified
Reviewer: Kurtz Oneday - Music is the life and blood of the soul put into sonic waves crunching against the ear drum and the heart of all people. I'd have to say through several listens that IDENTIFY clearly accomplishes this, and it's clear Haitz has had the same experience in creating this album. From the first track, there is the laten, digitized whisper that the following tracks have been created through hard work and intense musicianship. From Identify and on, the crunch of brutal riffs reigns supreme. However, its the vocals from Haitz that are the biggest suprise. One usually does not welcome comparisons, but the voice we hear closely resembles Layne Staley (RIP). This is greatly welcomed. The howls and growls, the whining charisma, only is more defined and prominent as the album continues. The tracks that definitely stand out are September, Spirit Fly, Head trip, and It's not Easy. What I truly love, besides the strong voal presence, is the guitar work. Exploding into directions unforseen, uncompromised, and unflinching. Haitz tears through tracks with brutality. After IDENTIFY's conclusion, the only thing left is to see the band live, and I intend to do this. But you must intend to buy this record now, and hopefully "identify" with the passion and talent of Haitz. One piece of advice, start with the last track. It is the disclaimer, and gives the entire rationale for this rock experience. Great work and a great album!

simply the best band of the 21st century, period.
Reviewer: rod 'n' roll - this cd will launch this rockin' ass band to the massive market of rock'n'roll hall of fame, definately the best cd i've heard since the stone temple pilots, alice in chains, soundgarden, and faith no more's days; awsome production, inpecable musicianship, all major labels should be fighting for signing this kick ass band, instead of promoting pretty boys' bands that all are good for is 1 month of fame and a life of deception......the rodster.











ice cool this cd is the new millinium
Reviewer: dogcather

this band kicks arse
Reviewer: skamonkeydude - this stuff kicks arse! this band is awsome in musical terms and any other terms. Its got bitchen' lyrics and sweet guitar. i really like this cd.

tight. quality.
Reviewer: taco - This is good. Wide variety of different feelings, sounds. It brings quality guitar back today's music scene. Different groove than the Monster garage stuff, you'll dig it.

Hot, powerful guitars! Very tight band.
Reviewer: Ome Popley - Hot, powerful guitars! Very tight band. These guys are top quality musicians and it comes through loud and clear on this CD. Great pace and flow to each song and to the track selection as well. My favorites are: Deeper and Spirit Fly. These songs should be on the radio. There's lots of layers and texture to the music without making it complicated and difficult to engage-- these guys are straight-up Rock 'n' Roll. No, they're Rock with mucho Soul. Ike Turner in a mosh pit. I can't wait to see Haitz live!

Bio

This modern rock/metal outfit formed in 2002 and based out of Los Angeles, CA, is Richard Haitz-lead vocals/guitar; Lyle Simmons-guitar/backing vocals; Juan VanDunk-bass/backing vocals; Joey Tressler-drums.
, “Evolution” their 2nd CD can be described as a mix of hard rock, heavy metal, with a touch of funk. Listen to harmonizing vocals enlaced over crunching monster vocals; it’s both exciting and captivating. With heavy guitars and undeniable rhythm, their music is a combination of cadence and creative lyrics that is displayed at their live performances and captured on their albums.
Every so often a band comes around with a certain uniqueness that grabs you from the opening song, and then gets better with each listen. Every song represents a wealth of rock and heavy metal music styles. The fascination with this new breed of modern rock musicians is their instinctive ability to connect many genres of music, thereby shaping and molding it into something all of their own making.
The album captures HAITZ's unique sound, with compelling vocals, guitar riffs attacked from every angle, and addictive rhythms. Their live performances are undeniably fun and the audience is awestruck. Perfection is the word and music of this nature grows inside itself, and it will grow on you with each spin.
