Hard rock/metal act Poison Pill signed on to Sliptrick Records for the release of the self-titled album coming November 7th.
Poison Pill was formed around the ambition to link hard hitting metal with unique verbal expressions of human frustration. This first release is a statement that has developed from three musicians of diverse backgrounds getting together sharing their visions of a modern, revitalized metal sound. The band felt there was new ideas to create in relation to the range of more traditional metal influences.
Poison Pill wants to reinvent and challenge what has become stereotypical words, expressions and messages flooding the genre. There are more subjects to touch upon than beer, babes, rock’n’roll, and on the other hand hell, war and monsters. Like the faceless external forces that surround us Poison Pill is a statement that’s not based on faces and names. It’s not a matter of individuals forming a line-up to promote their own careers, it’s about staying true to the artistic expression without getting stuck in a cult of personality. The music, the lyrics, the songs are what is important and it is also, in the end, what will attract the listener.
Stay tuned for more information on the album.
