Interestingly named after the creator of Dungeons And Dragons, Gygax is in a sense the continuation of Gypsyhawk, a band who released two albums in 2010 and 2012 before breaking up. Vocalist/bassist Eric Harris brings along the Thin Lizzy influences from that band here, as heard on the 2016 debut Critical Hits. There's not a lot of surprises here, as the band is content to rock out 70's style, a style they nail to a T.
