O-NYX / Dead or Alive (2018) / Hey Jack (2018 - 1st Album - Dead or Alive)

Rock guitars are alive and well

Hey Jack is the first song I listened to, by O-Nyx, but this band has a large selection of recordings and they’re worth checking out. Recording and producing music is no easy task. O-Nyx has definitely put a lot of effort into their body of work and it shows. On first listen the most striking thing about, Hey Jack is guitars in your face and it’s good. They did a nice job getting the guitars to really rip. From there on things fall into place well, revealing a very cool song. The band is very tight and cohesive and the lead vocals are strong. My overall feeling, and it carries through a lot of their tracks, is that the finished product falls just short of sounding like a real record. This band deserves professional record production. Without a decent budget a lot of groups are in the same conundrum. Professional mixing and mastering would probably help give their sound the polish of a great record. After all, the goal of record production is to provide an exciting listening experience. Listening to, Hey Jack is definitely a good listening experience and I have a feeling, O-Nyx will be taking things to the next level.

O-NYX...Hey Jack

Great track from the off very professional sound good recording great guitar work some talent there .add to your road trip play list beast listening with larger speakers as you then can feel the beat . Nice busy bass line again much better with real speakers or larger head phones lead breaks are amazing and the sounds that come out of those guitars are amazing good job all the best Stephen press Play

Hey Yeahhhh

One of the things I enjoy most about Number One Music artists is the newfound ability to hear music from around the world by singers who I'd never have the chance to listen to otherwise. That, in itself, is a great thing. Here, with this song O-Nyx delivers another passionate rock and roll blow out that should be heard around the world. Very 90's radio friendly and well mixed and produced.

HOW ROCK SHOULD SOUND

This is how rock n roll should sould sound, straight in your face! agressive and at the same time melodic so that you can flow with the music, nice vocals, great guitars and a nice overall rock n roll!!!!!

Very good

Very good song, I like the sound of the bass and the force that the guitar prints. Good melody and good voice. Good interpretation, The first guitar is powerful, this song sounds very good. My congratulations.

Great Job

There is so much here that I like. the drums and bass make love in this. it creates such a tight pocket. the rhythm guitar has that stamped raw kinda the off springs vibe. the recording is near perfect. also love the direction you took for the lead guitar. it really skips across the music like a perfect stone that skips 9 times across the water. I know this is lame site. I really hope you guys try to get a local radio station to play this. you guys are really good. you guys have that old classic 90's vibe but with a new take on it. the heart is missing in todays music, but you guys have heart. peace, and good luck. Joe Garrison

Nice 80's Glam Rockstyled song...!

Initial start of this song, nice guitar riff (Always catches my attention)! Has a lot of 80's glam rock influences, with the guitar. The lyrics a sung very 80's glam rock 'esque as well. This is a catchy song overall. Nice harmonies vocally, and the guitar riff rolling through this song,plus with very good guitar solo(s), to give it that "true" 80's glam rock feel. It could use a few tweaks in the recording, here & there, but overall... this is a song that I have listened to three times already, so it does catch you attention! This is a very good song, so definitely listen to it, especially if you are into Glam Rock/Metal! Thank you O-NYX!

Rad hard rock song, great musicianship!

This song is a great hard rock song! Great musicianship, the instruments all sound great- powerful drums, shredding guitar tone, solid bass. The vocals are awesome too, great classic rock style voice with power. This song reminds me of a classic 80s style hard rock song but updated to the current era. Definitely inspired by the great classic rock and hard rock bands but bringing a fresh perspective. Give it a listen!

Studios and engineers 80"s

Hey guys I listened to Hey Jack and the first thing that caught me was the low quality mix, the next thing is that it reminded me of the 80's rock which isn't such a bad thing since that is 28 years ago. It might be your time...music always comes back. have a great day and good luck.

Nice tune!

"Hey Jack" is a classic, in your face, rock song that works out great. I really miss hearing this style of music on radio stations. I really dig how the bass line carries the song during parts of the verse and gives the song some breathing room. The guitar work is really good and there's a nice tasty guitar solo in the middle. This is straight up rock and this is the stuff I miss. Nice tune!

I LIKED It!

HEY! O-NYX! Thanks for sending this to me for review. It kicks ass, man. The intro is very catchy and hooked me quickly. Nice ride all the way thru it. The breaks are 'spot' on with the triple Bass lick in there making it kick very nicely. It teased me making me waiting to see what was coming with the lead guitar solo. It was worth waiting for, and you 'delivered' a good one. It's rare for me to give a '5' to someone's music, but you earned this one, man. Send me some more like this. Good Luck on your music adventure my friends ~ Keep ON ROCKIN'!.........gizzmow, Bonham, Texas

Great Production

Excellent guitar tone and recording. Nice dynamics. Good composition. 2nd verse probably needs some guitar parts to build excitement and distinguish it from the 1st. Nice guitar solo... Vocals are right on key... Final thought: Ask yourself why a Van Halen song is really cool and your song is just "Nice". Even with all the great points, it still needs that "One Thing". The elusive "Thing". TrashDay
