"" Live" CD Review"

Blister harkens back to the late 70's NYC punk sound..... a little Patti Smith and the Ramones, as seen through 90's Cobain prescription sunglasses... Loud and tight, dropping out for the spewed vocal rants. The lyrics are intense, by turn bitter, sardonic, angry, spitting from the heart. See you in the mosh pit. - J. Esch Orange Street Press

""Moments" CD Review"

Blister comes right at you with sharp, biting tunes and pained psyche damaging lyrics. Their garagy/punk inspired songs are tight and powerful. Where this band really shines however, is in the lyrical department with honest, angry, thought provoking images and words that convey a depth of feeling few bands can muster. Yes, even today poets hide behind the veil of rock 'n roll and Blister is living proof.... if you are not inspired and provoked by these words, you're not human. - Eric Walls, Editor faZe 3 Magazine

""Live" CD Review"

Raleigh's Blister are back with more songs of venomous verbiage and quirky punk riffage. They seem to have gotten a little noisier and a tad heavier than their last effort, but tha's a good thing. - Eric Walls, Editor faZe 3 Magazine

Blister, recipients of the 1999 Jim Beam Bourbon B.E.A.M. Music Grant Program and B.E.A.M. representatives for the 2001 Atlantis Music Conference, quickly developed their distinctive style of music, progressive punk. Complete with thick, biting guitars, a primal rhythm section and powerful vocals laced in honest thought provoking lyrics and silvery melodies. Blister is that rare band that blends an unconventional form of rock music with lusty hooks that are sure to ensnare the masses.

After being together six months, Blister got it's first nod when they were chosen as semi-finalists in the Musician Magazine's "Best Unsigned Band" Contest. Next they made the list of "Best Bands in North Carolina" in Faze 3 Magazine and chosen "Most Wanted Band" by WDCC 90.5, a CMJ reporting radio station. Information Magazine selected Blister for an "Indie Spotlight" and the legendary rock venue, The Caboose, included them on Volume II of their "Best Bands of The Caboose" video series.

Critics have written that Blister's sound is a blessed union of the late 70's NYC punk scene and the best of the early 90's Seattle grunge scene. Blister has won over the underground with intense and passionate performances, which of course would mean nothing without the bands strongest distinction, good songs.
