Raw Image brilliantly mixes heavy and catchy riffs with melodies that rival the work of more well known acts such as Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. Singer Eric Johnson belts out vocals that make you wonder why he isn't internationally known, while guitarists Mike Paytas and Mick Morris come at you with a dual attack that features shredding, harmonies, and riffs that take you back to the glory years of heavy metal. Not to be forgotten is drummer Lenny Doss who, after all these years, still attacks you with a battery that rivals his more well-known (and younger) counterparts.
For the metal inclined, this is a show not to be missed. Raw Image holds down the old-school local metal sound with the best of them. Also, word on the street is that there may be some Toxic Waltz(ing) going down. Bring your earplugs!
