Adverse Reaction

A flowing, mind-altering dose of psychedelic electronic rock, dubbed "Psychetronic Rock". Think Pink Floyd meets the Legendary Pink Dots meets Ozric Tentacles, with a dash of Nine Inch Nails, plus...

Album Notes
Specimen 37 is an immersive aural experience - blending elements of electronica, modern, classic, and psychedelic rock into a unique sound.

Specimen 37's debut CD, Adverse Reaction, is a chronicle of the mind of Specimen 37.

Adverse Reaction garnered some very positive reviews:

"This must be the month for new sounds because the creative six members of Specimen 37 are continuing the trend of engaging, original music with their album Adverse Reaction. Cleverly blending techno rhythms, mesmerizing rock riffs and over-the-top sound bytes, Specimen 37 constructs alluring tracks filled with bounding energy.
The musicianship is stellar as is the production of this intriguing body of work. Specimen 37 reflects the sum of it's parts and it shows as these songs soar with a power not yet common to the masses. This is another album that will have to be experienced to be appreciated, but my guess is after one listen, you'll come away with a remarkable aural experience you won't soon forget."

"It's hard to put a label on Specimen 37. The best way to describe them is 'electro-goth-metal-techno-raver-ambiant with a strong '80's feel.' I still haven't decided if this album is a work of genius or just incredibly pretentious...

...Some of the songs are slow and some are fast; some have lyrics and some do not. Each is unique. Even the parts of the individual songs are unique. This is an album complex enough to keep you listening over and over again."

"Man some creepy stuff. I hit play and ran and hid in the closet... just in case. Space-scapes of the nether worlds abound. Synth bits go woosh and ping and someone speaks softly or knashes the vocals through EQ and distortion (when there is a vocal). Bass feel meanders beneath pseudo club beats with lots of electronica zing. (Must I continue?) O.K. so we like to experiment. We're sick of guitar pop. We want to do it our way (like Frank the Sin-atra). Good by me, dude. Drop a few of your favorites and when the rush ensues, you're here. Space, the final frontier. Don't be scared, read the song titles; I'm here with you; 'First Contact', 'Luminescence', 'Silent Sorrow', 'Enlightenment', 'Worm Hole' and 'Sanctuary'."

I'm telling you guys..this cd fucking owns! buy it..worth it too..sweet music...later


There's so much in this CD that you ain't ever gonna get bored!
How did you guys manage to cram five albums worth into one? Talk about value for money! Not to say this album is overly long or rushed, because it's not, there's just so much in there! I know I ain't ever gonna get bored with listening to it! Took my senses, one at a time, and then stretched, twisted, and caressed them into a new, and interesting combination. After only the first listening I felt a better man for the experience! Believe me, you will too!!!

Holds nothing back.
Those who like this CD might call it "uncompromising." Those who dislike it might call it "self-indulgent." Both descriptions would be accurate. There is no compromise here, and the musical style is hard to describe. Think Pink Floyd, but not the late, commercial, Waterless Floyd - not even the transitional "Dark Side of the Moon" Floyd. Go back to the days before "Ummagumma" when Pink Floyd used guitars and electronica and drums and every other means of making sounds that they could think of to create visionary images in audio form. The difference here is that many things have happened in popular music in the 40 years or so that have passed since early Floyd. We've seen grunge, thrash, crash, and all sorts of other mini-movements rise and fall. Specimen 37 draws on those influences in places, giving them a somewhat broader palette than the 60's and 70's provided. "Adverse Reaction" shows a raw power and the ability to translate a vision into music. It shows a musical talent that is still developing and promises more and better things to come. I recommend that you get this CD and future releases from this group to see how that development proceeds. It should be quite a ride.
