Just like the Jurassic geologic period all good things truly must come to an end. For five or six years Heat-Ray has been the Juggernaut flying the flag for the Hull metal scene playing up and down the country. Though in a cruel twist of irony, such success is what led to Heat-Ray becoming defunct – it simply became too expensive for the band to carry on. And whilst they may now be gone there is no reason why one cannot still go through old videos or listen to their demo tracks and enjoy their awesome repertoire featuring songs such as Devil Killer or The Last Ride.
Each song packed with soulful yet extremely technical and insanely fast solos and charged full steam ahead by Chunk’s thunderous vocals. Their motto “High energy British heavy metal fuelled by beer, bbqs and good fun times” demonstrates their approach to metal – an approach which shows metal shouldn’t take itself too seriously (though they certainly didn’t have a lax attitude) .

A band of their calibre, and one that has left such an impressionable mark on the underground scene can never truly die. R.I.P Heat-Ray.
