Lionize in Detroit

By Krash Kiten

Lionize is a Maryland-based band that never stops amazing fans with every album released. Their new album, JetPack Soundtrack, released Tuesday February 18th, was recorded August 2013 at Machine Shop Studios in New Jersey. Compared to their past work, this one is sure to please fans old and new as this album gets funky.

The tracks have something different this time around. On the JetPack Soundtrack, Lionize had the great opportunity of having Jean-Paul Gaster, the drummer from Clutch, co-produce this new album, along with produced Machine (Fall out Boy, Lamb of God). This is Lionize’s first album released on Clutch’s label, Weathermaker Music.

The collaboration resulted in Lionize’s new funky rock style that will make metal lovers stop and take notice. “Reality Check” is the first single released off of JetPack and has a hip, upbeat feel with a lively chorus.

Lionize is always a pleasure to see live; they are such a great group of talented young guys. Being a fan myself, I give this album a big thumbs up and urge you check them out. New music this great is a rare treat.
