Two years have passed since blues-rock and classic metal outfit Gunpowder Gray’s self-titled debut arrived via Atlanta metal stronghold Boris Records. Since then, the group has gone through a few lineup changes. Original drummer Joey O’Brien’s blistering tour schedule with Biters opened the door for Justin Smith to join. Lead singer Nate Godbee also left the band, shifting guitarist Chris Heffernan to the forefront.
“Straight to Hell” offers the first look at a second EP the group is shopping around to record labels. The song’s soaring riffs and choruses give a nod to a bygone era for metal, when the system catered to rock stars who told sordid tales from life on the open road.
