Birch Hill Dam

Birch Hill Dam


Stoner Metal/Rock in the same vein as Corrosion of Conformity, Kyuss, Black Sabbath, High on Fire, The Sword and just good old fashioned rock 'n' roll with a heavy dose of metal thrown in the mix.


Birch Hill Dam is best described as “Good, Old-Fashioned, Beer Drinkin’, heavy rock and roll”. Their unique sound is a varied mix spawning from the beginning of heaviness the likes of Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, & Led Zeppelin, and the beginning of stoner - Kyuss, Fu Manchu, & Corrosion of Conformity. The 4 piece which hails from Central Massachusetts delivers a straight forward, fuzzed out, blend of rock & metal that is sure to get your fists ready to pump, and your feet ready to stomp. This music style remains evident within all five tracks of their demo cd, which was recorded early 2007.

The initial idea for the group came from months of deliberation between Barrett & Nygard, who were looking to start playing music again. They had set out on a mission to fill the rhythm section with like minded musicians – and that’s where Joe and John came into the picture. After a brief jam session the two new they had found a good match. The newly created foursome was able to put together some quality heart pounding music and began playing in small local clubs. They quickly developed a following and in no time at all were invited to perform larger venues such as The Middle East Downstairs and The Living Room with other well known acts such as Seemless, Genuflect, Haloburn, Frozen, Kanerko, Blitzkid, and Trashlight Vision. In late 07 thier drummer John left the band to focus more on his personal life. In steps Matt Neely. A seasoned drummer who is no stranger to playing live for many years with such great acts as Rattle Battle and Headed For The Smoke. Playing to nearly almost sold out crowds in Cambridge, Worcester, and Providence they are ready to destroy every stage they hit! With a new member and a new drive there's no telling where this will go. Music driven with passion from the heart and a desire to push it as far as it will go. There's no stopping this train of good 'ol heavy rock 'n' roll!
