Sweet, Sweet Poison

These 3 Poisons is a band that I hold near and dear to my heart. Residing in Orange County, NY, Alex, Brendan, Brian, Mike, and Ryan are guys you want to have a beer with (or ten beers) all the while getting the vibe that you’re on deck with raucous, yet refined pirates. And of course you want to pop in one of their CDs and rage until your limbs fall off. I’m serious. Combining metal, hardcore and rock, they have a sound that cannot be pinned under one musical genre.

The most recent show I attended was on April 30th with Senses Fail at The Chance in Poughkeepsie, NY. After taking an elbow to the jaw while in the mosh pit, I realized not only do I need to brush up on my windmill, but also that these guys induced a ferocity upon the crowd that could only come from masters. Take a listen to one of the tracks off their latest EP, Three Sides to a Story, Your Side and tell me you don’t feel it too. “Sweet Needle of Death” has got to be my favorite, but you need to hear them all to know for yourself. Check out These 3 Poisons’ website where you can find out where they’re playing next, how to purchase their albums, and, of course, to see their lovely mugs. (You can also check out my sister from another mister, Mama Poison, who takes the raddest shots of these swashbucklers) Yargh, matey!
