"Radio Testimonials of the Coming Apocalypse: Voodoo Pharmacolagy destroys the world"

BALTIMORE- Voodoo Pharmacology does it again with Radio Testimonials of the Coming Apocalypse.

Their latest album weaves a dreamy dystopia where grinding chords meet exotic drones. RTotCA gets experimental without going completely mad scientist and losing some of the sound that makes Baltimore's Voodoo Pharmacology unique.

"Rooftop Samsara" is a twisted big tent revival long after society collapsed. Weaving exctatic chants and hymnals, the real "Voodoo" kicks in with crunchy cords, tight picking and signature deep, dark vocals to rain fire and brimstone on nonbelievers.

About that picking: Voodoo Pharmacology threads plucked banjo (or mandolin) in a few songs to great and distinct effect. In "Asphalt and Tumbleweeds," the picking is front and center. Without getting twangy, they give the track an almost western sound. In "Pilgrim's Moon," the picking is present but sharp notes give an almost Irish folk feel to it, evoking caravans over foggy moonlit moors.

"The Fanaid Grove" takes that theme a little further with a short, beautiful solo by a female vocalist who is at once hopeful and mournful for a future that will not be.

"MayFly" is a powerful funeral durge for the end of civilization. If the world ends, I hope it sounds like this.

RTofCA subtly stalks you on the horizon like hungry wolves and then rushes in with the fury of mad highway bandits. If Firefly had this soundtrack, it might still be running. It's that good.

"Rock Band 2 Features Voodoo Pharmacology"

I was driving home from work one day and I received a text message from my good friend Ryan Romano, drummer of “Voodoo Pharmacology”, and that simple message made my day.

Basically, this unique local band is getting more exposure thanks to Rock Band 2 selecting their song, ” Minnesota” into their latest game.

I think everyone who is attending this weeks Voodoo Pharmacology show in Sonar( Baltimore) this Friday should give them a huge shout-out for earning such a huge accomplishment.

"Voodoo Pharmacology's new album brings ubridled talent and depth to the Baltimore, MD music scene"

http://www.examiner.com/x-13937-Urban-Arts-Examiner~y2009m8d3-Voodoo-Pharmacologys-new-album-brings-ubridled-talent-and-depth-to-the-Baltimore-MD-music-scene

In their self-titled release with Jam House Productions, Voodoo Pharmacology is somewhere between Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode and Oingo Boingo. The album mixes crunchy, grungy synths and driving chords with haunting, plucked acoustic strings in a broad range of addictive tunes that are each distinct, but united by the band's unique sound. The album starts strong and doesn't need to fight for your attention - Voodoo Pharmacology's powerful music and evocative lyrics grab you, throw you in the back and take you for a ride.

"The Legend of Pete Bombascinto" is a spoken tale over loud, bluesy riffs that tells the story of a Vegas Boss that glitters with neon, and booze-laden poker room noir and then, somehow, transitions effortlessly into the next track "Asphalt and Tumbleweeds" which quietly muses with a banjo and violin and evokes the desert at night. The simple, excellent track balances urgency and discretion, hauling ass away from a bad dream with the top down and the wind and stars to wash away the sound of Bombascinto's gunfire.

"The Mannequin Ballet" is a kiss from the mind of Tim Burton and deserves to be in his next feature film. Haunting, soft and sweet, it's a dark music box melody that caresses you away from whatever you were doing and gently, insistingly, commands you simply stop and listen.

Voodoo Pharmacology's style, substance and immense skill are a force to be reckoned with. The Baltimore, Maryland band is immensely talented and has the technical prowess and production values to back it up. Keep an eye on them, Voodoo Pharmacology is going to go far! - Baltimore Examiner
