Album Notes
American Dog has always had Bite, but "Hard" not only bites it rips the skin off your bones. The cd has twelve Ass-Kickers that show a band that has matured with each cd without mellowing, an almost impossible feat.

Michael Hannon's wry witty lyrics combined with Steve Theado's Guitar Wizardry and Keith Picken's drumming have cooked up the best American Dog cd yet, which is saying quite a lot.

This is the deluxe version of the cd, which ships with an American Dog Iron on patch and sticker.

The Dog Bites Again!
American Dog has smacked another one out of the park with their latest, Hard. This is a leaner, meaner Dog than we've heard on previous releases, with not quite as much guitar flash, which allows the whole band to shine, rather than your attention being riveted on Steve Theado the entire time. Some of the band's absolute best songs hail from this CD, like "Sometimes You Eat the Pussy ...," "Rock 'n' Roll Dog," "Spell On Me," and the aptly named but very cool "Little Short." I don't know if Hard is better than Scars-N-Bars necessarily, because I really dig that album too, but it's a very worthy follow-up in every way, and I've really got no complaints.

DOG hits so HARD, your name's gonna drop outta the phonebook!
The newest release by American Dog, shows that they still bring the Bite on such tracks as BOCK,NO PITY, SOMETIMES YOU EAT THE PUSSY, and ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE. For me the favorite had to be the closing track MAGNIFICENT BASTARD, but the whole album is great! This is a band that grow with each album..THIS DOG WILL HUNT!!!!!!

headed in the right direction
If Nashville Pussy were an all-male trio, this is what they would sound like. I can certainly see how Europe would go nuts for this band.


Everyone Needs To Get "HARD"!
Best Hard Rock Album of the Year! "Long Time Comin" and "Rock and Roll Dog" really stand out. Only thing better will be to hear it live. CAN'T WAIT!

Take notes kids...THIS is rock at its finest
I don't take the review process lightly - telling a band what you think they wanna hear ain't gonna help any potential buyers of the cd. That being said....CAN I GIVE HARD MORE THAN 5 STARS???? A+++, 5 star, 2 thumbs up. Whatever you wanna rate it - it gets the highest possible score from yours truly. The beer drinkers and hell raisers from Columbus OH had the inenviable task of trying to top their no bs, beer soaked, rock n roll classic back catalog and with 'Hard' they did just that. Nearly ten years into their journey, Michael "Master" Hannon, Steve Theado, and Keith Pickens (in his swan song) have released a disc that will stand the test of time. ITS THAT GOOD KIDS! The production quality is top notch - if you're an audiophile you'll be in for a treat. If you like in your face Lemmy-esque bass then you're gonna dig this. Hard hitting and intricate drum work? You'll find it here. And if you want to hear one of the greatest undiscovered guitarists around then this disc is for you. The title is an apt one - this is certainly the hardest and heaviest American Dog disc to date. But don't be fooled, the inclusion of acoustic guitar (thats right, I said it, acoustic!) and some subtle piano and keyboard work on a couple tracks shows the continued growth of the band. Tracks such as 'Sometimes You Eat The Pussy' and 'Rock N Roll Dog' show that while the band has matured, they proudly haven't grown up. 'Hypnotized' is a HUGE track that showcases Theado's guitar prowess as well as the production skills of their long-time associate Joe Viers (John Schwab Studios) . 'Beatin Broken Etc' is similiar in feel to AC/DC's 'Rock N Roll Aint Noise Pollution' and 'Magnificant Bastard' can simply be described as an instant classic. Throw in the fact that in this day and age of paying more to get less...the band has offered up a limited deluxe edition of the disc that comes with a sticker and an iron on patch all at no extra cost. The extras are a nice touch - but believe me, the music is more than enough. Long time die hard fan or 1st time listener I've only got one more thing to say....GO BUY THIS CD NOW!!
