HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED – Delivers Their Third Lethal Dosage With New EP, “Allergy”

Harmful If Swallowed  Photo Shoot

Los Angeles Punk Rock Band Is A Hit With MTV And KROQ

_______________________________________

Los Angeles, CA – Equipped with a recipe of hard-hitting beats, thought-provoking lyrics and chart-worthy hooks is the Los Angeles punk rock band, Harmful if Swallowed. The band is releasing their six-song EP Allergy containing the hypnotic singles, “Sabrina (Little Angel)” and “Allergy,” available now on iTunes. Since the release of their acclaimed debut Serverthe band has garnered a faithful following with tracks appearing on multiple MTV shows and are frequently spun on the world-famous Los Angeles rock station KROQ. Harmful If Swallowed is preparing to raise their bar even higher with their best work to date, Allergy.

Fronted by vocalist/guitarist Greg Martin, the band’s lineup is made up of Josh Loren (drums), Carlos Nieto III (bass, backing vocals) and Brian Martinez (rhythm guitar). The latest EP, produced at the hands of GRAMMY award-winner, Matt Hyde (Slayer, Porno for Pyros, No Doubt), delivers an impressive range of subject matter, rhythm and sound. Allergy is a smooth evolution from previous records; charged with a fiery energy, stellar vocal chops and real-life situation lyrics.

“Sabrina (Little Angel)” hits hard at the opening with witty lyrics, propulsive drum kicks and enticing electric guitars all supported by strong vocals and ear-pleasing harmonies on the hook. The title track “Allergy”, written about an ex-girlfriend, moves listeners in a similar fashion with canny metaphors and raw emotion. The song compares an ex-girlfriend who makes you so sick whenever she reappears, like a bad allergy.

Harfmful If Swallowed - Allergy - promo cover pic

Songs like “Hateful” and “Recession” are a little more provocative but still feature the Harmful If Swallowed mainstay – head-banging instrumentation. While the track “Lindsay” has it all – catchy hooks, witty lyrics and is penned about the queen of trouble, Lindsay Lohan. Each song is a seamless introduction to the next, while keeping listeners intrigued and entertained. Allergy was recorded in Hollywood, CA at Sunset Lodge with the fine-tuned and crystal clear sound achieved with the help of engineer, Chris Rakestraw  (Bad Religion).

Harmful If Swallowed quickly realized their instant chemistry and it ignited a supernatural musical collaboration. Boasting their suggestive band name, Harmful if Swallowed released their debut album Serverwhichwas handpicked for a selection of MTV shows and caught the attention of radio DJ Kat Corbett (KROQ) who is an avid fan and supporter. Taking full advantage of their increased exposure and growing fan base, the band embarked on a slew of performances including co-headlining concerts with some of the industry’s biggest names such as KoRn, Green Day, Weezer, FEAR, Bad Religion and numerous others.

Harmful If Swallowed - band pic promo - #3

The band’s follow up album The Chronicles of Losing was released in 2009 and again caught the attention of industry professionals and fans alike. Determined to further develop and improve as musicians and artists, Harmful if Swallowed was inspired to create a new sound and take a new direction.Allergy is a graceful, intelligent departure that proves to fans their evolution is still rocketing.

It’s only a matter of time until heads are banging to the new sounds of Harmful if Swallowed. The name of the band hardly describes their music – so don’t be afraid to take a mouthful of the new EP, Allergy. Keep up with Harmful if Swallowed, at www.HarmfulifSwallowedband.com.

Speakers will virtually melt as a torrential downpour of “Devil’s Rain” engulfs the senses, catapulting you front row center into a jam-packed house of horrors.

The diverse set of modern-day Misfits classics included range from current hits like “Land of the Dead” and “Curse of the Mummy’s Hand”, on through all-new live versions of earlier-era material like “Scream!”, “Dig Up Her Bones”, “Helena” and more—recorded live, with a level of precision and intensity garnered in over three decades of horror business. In addition to 13 fiendish faves from the band’s cryptic catalog, the live set also includes a cover version of the anthem “Science Fiction/Double Feature” (from the cult-classic “Rocky Horror Picture Show”) performed by the Misfits for the first time ever on any release!

On Ugly Animals

“Retox owes its real allegiance to classic L.A. punk – imagine the Circle Jerks forced into San Diego’s noise-rock woodchipper.” – Revolver

“Animals crams 11 slamming defibrillations into a mere 13 minutes, bolting through its furious post-hardcore convulsions so quickly that your brain barely has time to register each song before the band moves on to its next speedy freakout.” – SF Weekly

“The cumulative effect of Ugly Animals feels like you’ve fallen off a skyscraper, stopping in intervals to smash through 37 sheets of plate glass. But you’ll want to get back on the elevator to the top floor to take the trip again.”  – Alternative Press

POISON IDEA – Southern Lord To Reissue Seminal Titles From Hardcore Punk Legends

Posted in hardcore, hardcore punk, Music, Punk rock, punk rock albums, punk rock bands, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on December 15, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

Southern Lord Recordings are proud to be officially re-releasing several incredible, seminal titles from Portland, Oregon’s explosive Punk/Hardcore kings, POISON IDEA in 2012!

Southern Lord will be releasing CD versions of several POISON IDEA reissues that TKO Records are currently re-releasing on vinyl. All of the material is being re-mastered by Jack Control (World Burns to Death) and each release includes new, extensive liner notes as well as never before seen photos and previously unreleased bonus material.

This POISON IDEA reissue series kicks off January 31st, with the re-release of Darby Crash Rides Again: The Early Years. Boasting twenty-nine tracks from the band’s earliest days, the album includes the 100% previously unreleased Boner’s Kitchen demo from 1981, the complete Darby Crash Rides Again demo from 1982, the complete uncut live-on-the-air set from the 1983 KBOO radio benefit, and outtakes from the Record Collectors Are Pretentious Assholes recording session.

Much of this material has either been out-of-print or never before officially released! All the recordings have been meticulously restored and mastered by Jack Control at Enormous Door Mastering. The booklet contains liner notes, old flyers and tons of previously unpublished photos from the band’s beginnings. This is a complete no-brainer for POISON IDEA fans or any fan of the early days of American Hardcore Punk.

Following Darby Crash Rides Again in January, Southern Lord will also re-release The Fatal Erection Years (Pick Your King/Record Collectors are Pretentious Assholes), War All The Time, Ian Mackaye, Feel The Darkness, We Must Burn and Last Will & Testament throughout 2012.

Turkey Day Album Suggestions From Metal Odyssey

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, holidays, metal odyssey, Music, Punk rock, punk rock albums, rock music, rock music news, thanksgiving with tags , , , , , , on November 23, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

Happy Thanksgiving America! It’s been a weird 2011 thus far for weather, that is for certain. (I just had to blurt that out). There are many reasons for my being thankful this Thanksgiving. My family, friends, Metal buddies (worldwide) and of course all the bands I listen to and write about I give thanks for. I’ve decided to compile a list of ten “listening suggestions” for anyone who is in need of an album title with “turkey” in it for Thanksgiving.

No, this is not a list of Heavy Metal albums, instead these are diverse titles that I discovered and at times rediscovered while researching for this post. Honestly, how many Heavy Metal albums are out there with the word “turkey” in the title anyways? Hopefully you may find these suggestions beneficial for your turkey festivities. Without further delay, I am very happy to present to you, the following ten turkey album suggestions for your ears:

Terry Lieberstein – Turkey Burps And T-Ball

I dunno. I found this album cover and it looks kinda fun. Um, it may be geared towards toddlers I would imagine. Then again, any politician out there should find this as a listening adventure for it’s slightly above their intellect.

John Lee Hooker Jr. – Live In Istanbul Turkey

A multi-grammy nominee and son of the legendary/late John Lee Hooker. This album looks pretty cool. I don’t own it nor have I listened to it… and I’m sure I’ll track it down eventually.

100 Miles Per Hour – Backsliding Turkey Kuts

I have no idea. If someone does know, please share your knowledge on this mystery album. If you like to experience Turkey Day in the fast lane, this seems to be a logical choice.

The Arrogant Worms – Christmas Turkey

A musical comedy trio from Canada are The Arrogant Worms. Apparently they parody music genres too. Sounds like a cool party to me.

Wild Turkey – Battle Hymn

Formed back in 1971 by former Jethro Tull bassist Glenn Cornick. Last I checked, Wild Turkey is still around too. By the way, any Wild Turkey album shall suffice as a suggestion. Drinking some Wild Turkey on Turkey Day is always another option.

Dre Towey with Sugar On Top – Turkey Bop

Once again, I dunno. Well, if you like turkey and want to bop, then I strongly urge you to give this one a serious listen. Metal be thy name.

Julia Marvel – The Turkey Sessions

Um, whatever. Is this a spoken word CD? A band? Stop the presses! I do know what “The Turkey Sessions” is all about! This is about the recent Deficit Reduction Committee! You know, those scholarly & economic versed politicians who were overpaid to find ways to cut U.S. government spending… and they accomplished… TURKEY!

National Lampoon – Gold Turkey (Radio Hour/Greatest Hits)

Obviously this album’s title sums up what you are going to hear. Comedy I imagine. Gold Turkey quality too. It must be pretty decent, as I have always enjoyed the National Lampoon movies over the years.

The Turkeys – Every Night’s The Same

This is the debut album from The Turkeys. The genre is Rock Americana. The Turkeys style: Bluegrass, Folk Rock and Blues. This album was released in 2007. That’s it, no more gravy about The Turkeys. I’ve given you enough information already and don’t want to spoil your turkey surprise.

BEKI BONDAGE – COLD TURKEY

All right now. Now we’re talking. Finally a suggestion I feel psyched about. I guess I’ve saved the best for last here. Beki Bondage and her solo album released in 2000: Cold Turkey. This album boasts 13 cover songs, from Thin Lizzy (The Boys Are Back In Town) to Nirvana (Smells Like Teen Spirit). Beki knows a thing or two about Rock ‘N Roll & Punk Rock. Take my Metal word for it…  the legendary Beki Bondage ROCKS. Beki is the singer, songwriter, guitarist and founding member for Vice Squad.

LONG LIVE THANKSGIVING.
