On the day of our CD release party, Bill O’Neill featured “Red Planet”:
“Red Planet,” the Vital Might (Magma Music) ***
The band’s Web site says some fans have compared it to Rush, others to System of a Down. Seems about right. What really sets Vital Might (a Boston trio that includes Cape native Andy Milk on guitar and vocals) apart is its lyrical creativity. The band’s press release describes “Red Planet” as the tale of a man who tries to rescue his lover after she’s kidnapped by Mafia thugs and held at the home of a mob boss — on Mars. Now that’s entertainment.
