Blue Mesa- Origami

If You’re Like Me…
Then you don’t just persist on ​one​ ​genre of music.  And if that’s the case, then maybe, like me, you enjoy European power metal, as I’ve previously stated!

If the above statements are true of yourself, then you should probably go out and pick yourself up a copy of Origami, by DENVER BAND, Blue Mesa!

We saw them at the Lion’s Lair on Colfax, on Jan. 5th. It was a chilly Friday night with SMOKIN’ HOT music and good times shared by all in attendance!

(Was that too cheesy? Did that read like a bad impression of Wolfman Jack? Sometimes, I just like to share my post-completion re-read thoughts, because I think my inner dialogue is funny… I guess, if the readers think it sucks, someone will eventually say something…)
The first thing that grabbed me about the performance was their diversity in apparent influences, ranging from Led Zeppelin to Queens of the Stone Age, and was anxious to sit and listen in the comfort of my own couch.

What I was treated to, sounded like Leave’s Eyes or Evanescence, with maybe a splash of Rise Against.  Well-balanced guitars, solid drum work, and seamlessly complimentary basslines accompany clean, talented, Pop-ish female vocals reminiscent of Adele.

​All in all, Blue Mesa is a band that you’ll certainly want to see in person, and while you’re there, you definitely won’t be disappointed with this album, should you choose to obtain it!
