Rhett Mays New Youtube Video Creatures of the Night Rocks Like Queen

In a recent review by Razorfish (http://razorfishreviews.blogspot.com/#!/2017/04/rhett-may.html) Rhett May’s brand new album “Creatures of the Night” was described as, “one of the most vital rock releases you’ll hear in recent memory.” This is just the beginning of a glowing review that highlights all the incredible components of Rhett’s new album.

 

Rhett May has been playing music and performing for forty years now from his first band at fifteen years old. In that time Rhett has gained an incredible amount of experience and mastery of the rock genre. This album showcases the work of a true professional and the clarity and complexity of his guitar solos are a testament to this.

 

This thirteen-song album is especially remarkable because of the cohesive intent with which it was written. The songs flow into each other seamlessly and, instead of a collection of singles, it is a complete work of art that is more thought-out than most albums in recent history.

 

With the album, May also released a fantastic Youtube video to the title song of the album “Creatures of the Night.” You can watch the video on his YouTube channel.

 

To get a taste of what the album has to offer, head to Noisetrade where Rhett is giving away a FREE DOWNLOAD of “Lexxi May”. If you love what you hear, then head to iTunes to get yourself a copy of the album.

Rhett May Releases Exceptional Creatures of the Night Rock Music Video

Rhett May has successfully written and released an album that challenges the cookie-cutter landscape of rock music today.  Rhett was originally born in Calcutta before moving to Australia.  He showcases the culture he was born into with his Sitar playing and also leaves no doubt about his love of classic rock.  His melodic lines are engaging and played with impressive mastery while still balancing perfectly with the distorted guitars and vocals.

Mays lyrics are top notch as well.  His observational writing is incredibly successful and, lyrically, his songs are all more than satisfactory.  If you enjoy the cohesive album writing of classic rock, Creatures of the Night should definitely be on your listening list.  Though the songs vary heavily in stylistic intent, orchestration and lyrical content- the album maintains an outstanding flow and will satisfy you from the first note of the first song until the reverb ends on the final track of the work.
