|Old Mill Blues|
Currently workin on new material. We'll be playin very soon!!!
It all started with a $400 pull-tab. A cheap abused Epiphone guitar, 25 watt amp, and a $200 drum set. That was Jered and I (Zed). Mitch soon started to jam (bass) and Corey (guitar) followed soon after. We started to learn some songs, and played our first gig at Rosies(Grafton) on Aug 18th 1998 with a set list that consisted of 18 songs!! lol We did about as well as any band that has never played a gig before. A few yrs passed and we got better, and were asked to open for the metal band Sons of Poseidon, aka S.O.P. If anyone in the band said they weren't scared, they're lying!!!! But SOP helped break the ice with some pranks, and a game of slap-ass. Over a few more yrs we opened more and more for them, then were named Opening Band of the Year.... 3 yrs straight!!!! They mentored us, happy to answer any questions we had about equipment, and the music industry. Soon we started writing our own songs. The first was called "A New Beginning". Then 7 more songs followed within the next 18 months. I'll never forget the 9th song. "Old Mill Blues". We were kickin the title around for about a year, and during break in practice I wrote the first verse and chorus, Corey soon finished with the next 2 verses, and he came up with the melody. We practiced the song about three times, and at the last minute decided to include it on our album, "First Offense". The songs on this album were written in dark times for us. Each song tells a story, of what was goin on in that point of our lives. Its been described to me as sounding a cross between Godsmack, and Metallica. To me it sounds like Felony, but you be the judge. Last Nov. we were contacted by Quickstar Productions in Baltimore MD. They heard our song "Cold" and wanted to include it on their compilation cd "Downtown Metal Vol. 16". Its a album featuring unsigned artists from around the world. We accepted the offer, and you can now download us on any digital distributor, such as itunes. The most recent news is we hired a singer, Tim Rose aka Deep Fuzzy. We are currently updating our set-list and will soon be back to playin gigs and writing more material. Be on the lookout we will be playin in a town near you.
