A musical route leads from Austin to Nashville, which is now standard in the USA. The quintet Scorpion Child came together from many parts of the country in 2006 to form and gain live experience in Austin, Texas. The self-titled debut album was made in the music stronghold of Nashville, Tennessee. From the first note on the band makes a powerful alarm here. Memories of the first two Led Zeppelin-soaked albums of the German-American Kingdom Come are coming to mind. The pre-release single "Polygon Of Eyes" sounds like Rainbow in the Dio era, who have set their sights on a Manowar track. Singer Aryn Jonathan Black has this high siren voice, which we unfortunately hear less and less in Hardrock and Metal lately. Scorpion Child have learned their seventies and eighties lessons diligently, but that doesn't mean that they are now turning every song into a tribute. It's got a lot of life of its own in it. Especially when they really get into a groove mood. And "The Secret Spot" offers a Southernrock touch despite its metallic orientation.
