Valley of the Sun: Electric Talons of the Thunderhawk

Valley of the Sun - 'Electric Talons of the Thunderhawk' is available from Fuzzorama Records.

If you enjoy earth-shattering rhythms, dark and soulful melodies and heavy blues-metal with a bit of Seattle grunge tossed in for flavor, then I strongly recommend that you check out Cincinnati's Valley of the Sun and their album Electric Talons of the Thunderhawk, from Fuzzorama Records.

Electric Talons of the Thunderhawk is the first full-length release from the band and follows on the heels of two very successful EPs, 2010 and The Sayings of the Seers. Talons picks up right where Sayings of the Seers left off with epic-length pieces rife with driving riffs and adroit changes in both tone and rhythm that display great talent and attention to composition and dynamics.

The lawyer for indicted juvenile court judge Tracie Hunter has asked the judge in her case for a change of venue, saying he doesn't think Hunter can get a fair trial in Hamilton County.

Hunter's lawyer, Clyde Bennett II, told WVXU that he filed a change-of-venue affidavit with Hamilton County Common Pleas Court judge Norbert Nadel. In it, Bennett says there has been so much adverse publicity in the Hunter case that he doesn't think it is probable to find jurors who haven't made up their minds.
