Recent Reviews for Moonless Night:
Now here's a tune that's going to go down as an absolute treat for classic rock enthusiasts! (Myself included). Rich Schock's riff-fueled, Hammond-organ-soaked "Prophecy" serves as an irrefutably charming ode to the rock genre's glory days and Rich has cooked up a truly delectable smorgasbord of tasty guitar licks, crunchy hooks, fist-pumping grooves, and soaring vocal elements, resulting in an anthemic, melody-injected piece of songwriting that's full of both feel and personality. Having been brought up on classic rock myself, it's always great to hear artists such as Rich Schock continuing to keep the flame of the style alive, and thanks to the committed performances, authentic sound, and solid arrangement, "Prophecy" captures the spirit of the genre perfectly.
Opening with the timeless sound of crunchy overdriven guitar and the warm expressive tones of the Hammond Organ, "Prophecy" wastes no time in establishing its undeniably classic 70's styled rock sound as pioneered by the likes of Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, and Black Sabbath to name but a few. The energy that the performances bring to the table is palpable, helping to draw you further into the music with ease whilst managing to create a feeling that this is a completely live and refreshingly raw performance, eschewing the over-produced tendencies that the genre has become accustomed to over the years. It's the synergy between these performances that helps infuse the writing with a sense of both vigor and character, allowing every attention-grabbing lead guitar moment, melody-drenched vocal hook, chest-rattling drum hit, and electrifying organ flourish to feel both impactful and soul-stirring. Whilst the arrangement follows a standard structure, it's no less effective, and its free-flowing nature ensures every distinct section feels strongly inter-connected with one another, allowing the music to move in a way that feels wholly organic and continuously engaging.
Target Audience Appeal
"Prophecy" is most definitely a tune for classic rock lovers and I'm sure it will strongly appeal to fans of the genre.
rock to the stick-Impressive work Rich! This rock anthem has an infectious energy that grabs hold of you from the very first note. The soaring vocals and powerful guitar riffs create an electrifying experience.
mp3hugger-Those beats set the tone but it is riffs that fill us in on the classic rock machinations of Rich Schock and boy does take on the role with relish to a degree that Moonless Night has the gusto of something that has endured through the decades... Rich is about to raise the stakes higher and higher the more the track proceeds. Something for the open air shows over the summer when all we need is a taste of the grandiose values of yore.
