The sound of Poison Pill can be linked to metal greats such as Judas Priest, Accept on occasion and other genre titans. However, Poison Pill have a distinct and unique sound that’s all their own.
On the self titled debut album, you’ll find riff heavy songs like Call Of The Precious, where the chorus is both memorable and very raw, all leading to a frantic and unsettling bridge as an emotional climax. In Pitch Black, there is a first hand demonstration of the incredible drum playing that’s featured throughout the album. After a hard hitting intro, the haunting verse creates a feeling of eeriness that evokes deep feelings with the listener. In the slower Confession of A Liar, once again the intro riff grabs you instantly with it’s Iommi-flavored riff leading to a drum intensive verse which culminates in an anthemic chorus!
These are just a few examples taken from an album set-up and filled with intense listening experiences!
The first release from Poison Pill is the first in line of a trilogy that has already been mapped out, lurking in the creative minds of the unknown members behind the group. For all classic metal fans out there, looking for something to really delve into, don’t miss out on Poison Pill, it will be well worth your time.
The cure is here!
