ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
History:
Who knew that 5 people who share the same passion in music would cross each others paths? Billy Graziadei of Biohazard has been producing bands from many different parts of the world for the past several years. While producing the Groovenics record, Singer Karl Bernholtz and Billy found that they shared many common musical interests and soon Suicide City was born. Suicide City then hooked up with New York based drummer Dan Lamagna and Groovenics/Ghost Fight guitarist AJ Marchetta. Shortly after, Billy joined forces with Kittie bassist Jennifer Arroyo which solidified SUICIDE CITY.

In a world engulfed by corruption, hatred, injustice and an overwhelming lack of originality there are a few places where only the polar opposites lurk. One of these scarce locations is set in a city, a place built of creativity, originality and uncut energy. This place is simply known as Suicide City. Defined by the band members as dark, turbulent, romantic, and despair SC has already found itself a home in my heart.

It has taken roughly 24 hours before I could even gather the words properly together to describe the intensity of Suicide City. Even now I have little faith that this review can truly express just a pulse of their energy.

The stage is set; the location is The Saint night club in Asbury Park NJ. A crowd of people wait anxiously to bare witness to the debut of a perfect collaboration of talents. Formed of ex Kittie Bassist Jennifer Arroyo, Biohazards Billy Graziadei (guitar, vocals), AJ Marchetta (guitar), Dan Lamagna (drums) and Karl Bernholtz (vocals) this city is one you will never want to leave.

This energy I speak of can be seen all around from the "physical" stage presence of Karl Bernholtz, who at times reminds me of a young Mick Jagger, mixed with a scoop of Iggy Pop based on his body moments. His voice is as well unique and can only be described as pure and raw all at once.

Jennifer Arroyo as always holds her own with her glowing passion and love for music as she moves rhythmically with every note leaving you breathless. This goddess of bass never ceases to amaze me. Her voice flows melodically intertwining with Bernholtz and Graziadei to make one of the most incredible vocal impressions of all times.

What can be said about the talents of producer, engineer, guitarist and vocalist Billy Graziadei that haven't already been said before? Watching him play makes you want to pick up a guitar and learn to play a note , test your vocals and learn to sing or just grab a white button up and cover it in blood. Thanks for the set list Billy, you own!

AJ Marchetta is as well filled with the ability to please the crowd as he gets up close and personal with everyone he sees just to remind you that he fucking owns you. The sound of AJ's guitar along with Billy's reminds you that when you work together the sounds you can create are monumental.

Look at Suicide City and you shall find its flesh, feel Suicide City and you shall find its veins, hear Suicide City and you will find its heartbeat being pounded out by the drum sticks of Dan Lamagna. Fierce, energetic and powerful are only the basics for explaining this mans talent.

The set was flawless, playing fan favorite "Undone" giving the crowd a chance to scream out loud with the band. Among the songs played (Diemonds, Marching Backwards, Not My Year, She Waits, Give me your Pity & Diluted) we found ourselves in complete darkness followed by bright blue for a musical treat, "I hope you guy's liked the Crow!" a perfect opening for a SC version of the Cure's "Burn". I almost found myself breaking out my lighter but was left motionless in a state of euphoria as I listened.

A trip to Suicide City is in fact what a music lover needs in their lives. Original, Fierce, Sexy, melodic, dark, bright & beautiful are the only words I am left with.

Can't wait for more....
I had heard some of these tracks on Suicide City's website and couldn't wait for the EP to come out. Plus the fact that it has Jennifer from Kittie and Billy from Biohazard made me want to check it out. I'm glad I did. Hope they tour behind this and then get some more tunes out. Basically, it sounds fresh to my ears and I love to hear new things. You could not go wrong with this EP.

Orgasmic
The cd is A-fuckin-MAZING!!!! It left me speechless!! I first heard of Suicide City when the went on tour with MSI. The 1st openning band, the AKA's, sucked ass. But then Suicide City came on and saved the day. Its hard to hold a candle to MSI but Suicide City's raw energy and awe-worthy stage presence make them on of the best live bands I've seen to date. I'm going to see them later this week at the Pontiac Grill in Philly and will attempt to get my hands on a copy of their new demo. GO BUY THIS CD, it'll pleasure your ear drums in ways that no ordinary mainstream noise can.

Left me speachless!
This CD is everything I expected and more. I heard the demo versions of the songs on this disc and they were amazing, but the final product is beyond words. I recommend this cd to everyone I know, and they have the same reaction. My favorite tracks would be "Give me Your Pity" (formerly known "Suicide City" when the band was known as Rodek) and of course "Undone" has always been an amazing song. I've been a fan of Suicide City since I first found out about them when they went by the name of Rodek, and been foaming at the mouth for a cd by them. I finally have it and it was well worth the wait.
