METAL: Industrial Metal, ROCK: Hard Rock

tv:616 are a true Post-Modern Hard Rock band. Their debut C.D. Poison Blanket combines the relentless 4/4 drive of Electronica''s raved up beats with crushing drop tuned guitar and barbed vocal hooks. "It''s kind of like Chemical Brothers in a menage a tois with Nirvana and Ministry" adds drummer Brian Lehfeldt.

tv:616 was formed out of the ashes of San Francisco''s Grotus and Portland Oregon''s Sweaty Nipples and Threscher. Their rock meets rave live shows (led by frontman vocalist Scott Watkins) caught the attention of local Indie label Elemental Records who put them in the studio along with sample/drumloop whiz Dave Merrick. The result is infectiousley catchy hard rock tunes laced with Hip Hop loops and a techno pulse. Poison Blanket parlays these aesthetics in grand fashion. Sickness and Now Your Gone (2 of many could be singles) contain bitter sweet chorus'' and Dig is dark and sexy in a tug of war with whipery vocals, and anthemic keyboards. The songs Poison Blanket and Deep Cut chug along with a Hard Rock disco fashion and the track Frozen should turn on the Hip Hop Rock sect with it''s mid tempo groove and scathing vocals.

All in all Poison Blanket contains influences from New School Hard Rock to Old School Goth and New Wave genre''s. Even organic alt rock purists will appreciate tv''s raw pop sensibilities, something the band tirelessly worked on to separate themselves from all of the tuneless, over digitized industrial metal currently on the scene."

The machines work for us - not the other way around " states guitarist Keith Brown. Indeed tv:616''s use of electronics serves to add to the band, not to fill gaps left by lack luster songwriting. See and hear for yourself on the debut C.D. from tv:616 - Poison Blanket on Elemental Records.

"TV 616 Side steps the old "industrial vs metal" question by claiming to be neither. Instead, like Filter, the power-chorded quartet plains its hard rock battle strategies around whatever weaponry is at their disposal - and if it means detonating gunpowder-packed drum loops like shrapnel grenades and piercing heavy metal armor with laser-hot synthesizer burns, all the better. Its simply rock for the 21st century. Get with the times."
-John Graham, Willamette Week
