This is HARAM’s second full length and features the new expanded lineup. Few current acts can match the intensity and vibrancy of HARAM. The band first assembled in summer 2004 and played their first show in January 2005 to coincide with the release of their demo, which they released themselves. One year later, Jim Siegel recorded their first, self-titled LP, in Stoughton, Massachusetts. On their spectacular debut, HARAM mined disparate facets of punk and noise to conjure something wholly cohesive and engaging. Matt Michel (ex-Majority Rule) and Mike Taylor's (ex-pg. 99) dual guitars roil and churn, while Kevin Lamiell and Andy Gale form a kinetic and explosive rhythm section on bass and drums, respectively. Kevin Lamiell amicably left HARAM shortly after the album's completion, but longtime friend Jeff Kane (ex-CITY OF CATERPILLAR) stepped in and blended into the group seamlessly. In 2006, the band toured the United States and Europe in support of their first album. After this, the band took a much-needed break and wrote new songs while reworking old ones with a new bass player and an additional guitarist (Kevin Longendyke and Ben Tankersley, respectively).
