Poison Headache will be touring in support of their recently released self-titled debut. Produced by the band’s own Phil Sgrosso (vocals/guitar/bass), mixed by Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues), and mastered by Brad Boatright (Black Breath, Inverloch, Sleep) of Audiosiege Mastering, Poison Headache is a 10-song monster: a heaving, teeth-bared mass of anger, violent intent, aggression, and terrible certainty. One part Entombed Wolverine Blues, one part Motorhead Ace of Spades, and one part Converge Jane Doe, Poison Headache is crossover for the new age. To purchase Poison Headache, please visit metalblade.com/poisonheadache or http://poisonheadache.com/shop, where the record is available in various formats.
Read on for some reviews of Poison Headache‘s acclaimed debut:
“…the San Diego trio’s self-titled debut rips and tears through a gnarly mix of hardcore, thrash, crust, and general bad vibes, and you can just tell that they’re going to slay live once they get out of California.” – Noisey.Vice.com
“If you dig insanely well-written corrosive hardcore with a knife-sharp metal edge to it – and who amongst us doesn’t? – you’re gonna dig Poison Headache.” – MetalSucks.net
“This shit is so violent you almost can’t listen to it sitting down, which is a testament to the music’s energy.” – MetalInjection.net
“…if you like music like Nails, or Twitching Tongues, you’ve got a new band to add to your list of metal/hardcore bands to keep an eye out for.” –MetalInsider.net
“Poison Headache play dark and aggressive hardcore with a little twist of gothic melancholy thrown in. Their album will fit nicely in my library on the same shelf as Integrity, sandwiched between The Banner and Harm’s Way.” – InvisibleOranges.com
