Album Notes
HEAD was borne of the twisted psyches of misfits and outcasts.Their collective histories hint at the slightly skewed nature of the music.

HEAD is dark, but highly-charged. HEAD is controversial and edgy. HEAD is a Vancouver band and it's what might happen if you mixed a little Tea Party with Garbage and Nine Inch Nails. Coquettish vocals; electro-slash guitars; mood altering keyboards; intoxicating rhythms laced with dark, erotic lyrics.HEAD is rock. A little industrial, sexually moody, heavy, but melodic. HEAD is... Lyric, Stone, oD, The Phantom, Styxx.

HEAD's “Afraid to Sleep” was launched Feb 20 2016. "Afraid to Sleep" was recorded at the Warehouse and Zed Productions, Produced by Stone, HEAD and Sheldon Zaharko. Mastered by Andy VanDette Engine Room Audio New York.

“Afraid to Sleep” is an Industrial/Rock concept album that will take the listener on a myriad of dark emotions through the life of a woman named Alberta. The story behind the album will be released on HEAD's website in March 2016.

Many have live a troubled past; few have come through it so well. A survivor of alcoholic parents, an abusive father, kidnapping and death threats towards her family, Lyric exorcises her demons onstage through song. “I use my past as a vehicle for ascension through music”... and that she does. Whether it be the song’s subject matter, her yearning, soul-searching voice, or while she’s seductively whispering to the audience as one, her stage performance will leave you feeling as if you’ve known her all your life and at the same time as if you’ve never seen anyone like her...

It started with a concept. Stone was there. The concept took its first flight in song. Stone was there. If Lyric can be said to be the soul of HEAD, then Stone is the heart... literally a “heart of Stone”. But, while Lyric uses her voice to share her pain, Stone was never much for conversation. Steeped in orchestral music and always drawn to darkness, his keyboards were his voice from an early age. His moods, the richness of texture, intensity and depth are what binds the music of HEAD together and the shackles that capture and hypnotize the listener...

The first thing most notice about Od is his peculiarity, and while a pronounced strangeness is definitely present, first impressions being what they are, it falls significantly short of the mark. From the initial razor-slash of his guitar, to alternate stringed soundscapes, to his versatility on keyboards, to stage antics constantly vying, beckoning, luring the audience to follow him at their own peril, on a journey only he knows... Od force feeds the grit and the drive, as well as a slight unpredictability and chaotic wildness, leaving his followers wondering how they arrived here... hmmm... that’s Od...

The Phantom:
Nobody knows too much about The Phantom. He materializes for shows, rehearsing and recording, but the times between those events? No one’s really sure. It’s not clear where he goes, what his history is, how he arrives... even who he is beyond... he’s The Phantom. What IS obvious is the pulse and enchanted rhythm of those trench-ripping, dark bass lines that drip from his long fingers, compelling audiences to sway with him... to follow him down the next black passageway... to be led anywhere... resistance is futile...

Being locked in the cellar for most of his youth... that changes a person. Styxx took his frustrations and abandonment issues out on anything nearby that could withstand his constant punishment, beating on the very foundation of his prison, learning to channel his anger and violence in rhythm. Deep, primal, primitive rhythms that pulse and drive the music irresistibly forward... Styxx became the very foundation that imprisoned him, finally breaking out and emerging like the beast reborn... into the musical enigma that is HEAD...
