ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In a city bloated by bright neon & fake breasts, a very real monster is born. The melodic hard-rock act known as OTHERWISE bring together soaring melodies, lethal guitars and bone-shattering rhythm section to awaken this beautiful beast, without losing track of their pop-sensibilities. The poet-warriors of OTHERWISE collectively sharpen their musical talons, lying in wait to be unleashed upon an unsuspecting populace. This is their story…

After innumerable frat parties, slutty sorority girls and drunken bar fights, vocalist Adrian Patrick & guitar-player Ted Carrasco finally decided to focus their post-adolescent rage and began writing together in early 2003. Over the course of that year, the two college drop-outs spent countless hours searching for the right players. Twelve months and two livers later, their musical direction would change, guided by the classically-trained fingers of guitarist Ryan Patrick. A student at the world-renowned Las Vegas Academy of the Performing & Visual Arts, the teenage guitar-major joined the group following some key firings by Ted and some crafty inter-band politicking by older brother, Adrian. Unbeknownst to them and literally right around the corner was a diamond-in-the-rough: drummer Alan Doucette. The son of internationally-acclaimed, Latin sensation Olga Breeskin, “Deuce” has the blood of musical royalty pumping through his nicotine-clogged veins. The youthful fervor of Ryan & Alan proved to be a secret, metal-edged weapon for their more experienced, alt-rocker counterparts. A year later, upon completing two overseas tours in the United States military, Sergeant D.W. King brought balance to this volatile musical weapon, a perspective that only a bass-playing, combat-veteran could provide.

So instead of breaking local ordinances, the boys have been breaking local attendance records for the past two years, firmly securing their place as one of Las Vegas’ biggest unsigned bands. Dubbed the "#1 unsigned act in America" by FOX News, OTHERWISE have been invited to share the stage with several national acts including: NOFX, the Vandals, SugarCult, W.A.S.P, Camp Freddy, The Human Value, One Thousand Pictures, Lo Mass Republic, Whitestarr, Escape the Fate,
Morningwood, Whitesnake, Living Things, Thin Lizzy, Godhead, David Lee Roth, Panic Channel, the Dreaming & Blue October.

Most recently, the lads of OTHERWISE were voted the "#1 unsigned band in Las Vegas" & were awarded the opening spot on Xtreme Rock Radio 107.5's Holiday Havoc 2006 mega-concert, featuring: The Deftones, Papa Roach, Unwritten Law, & Lost Prophets.


With the release of their self titled album, these young men plan to cast their shadow across the land, with unfurled wings of fortune and glory. On the path to immortality, OTHERWISE vow to take no prisoners. Granted a little luck and with the right team behind them, OTHERWISE sit poised to conquer the world, three and a half minutes at a time...

Amazing! incredible writting. Masters of their instruments
Otherwise is a perfect example of what happens when evolution grows while keeping in mind the foundation which it sprung from. Many famous songwritters have one or two good songs on their cd, followed by 11 tracks of crap. This is not the case with Otherwise. Each song is as inspiring as the last, yet so much different. Everytime I listen to any one song on this cd I feel an uncontrolable adrenilane coarse threw my veins. No band has ever been able to duplicate this sensation 11(12) times in a row. If you don't like this cd, than call your best friend, tell him/her to find a hammer, and instruct them on beating you in the head repeatedly until you come to your sences.

Great sound!
This was a great CD! I saw these guys in Vegas and decided to get there CD! I think that the lyrics are great and they have a great sound to them.
The only thing that could have been better was the sound quality of the CD. I think these guys could make it big with the right managment!

I promote Hip Hop, but OTHERWISE has me rethinking my business model.
Not since Megadeth or Suicidal Tendencies have I seen a band perform live, that made me want to run out and kick someone's ass! OTHERWISE brings an adrenaline packed album to compliment their live show, and they truly deserve more notoriety. BUY THIS ALBUM!!!
