ROCK: Hard Rock, ROCK: Classic Rock
TERRITORY- stakes its claim.
From the first throat clearing blast of guitars to the last fade of feedback, TERRITORY, "Is a hook heavy blend of modern and classic hard rock. The production is awesome!" Says REVELATION Z a webzine from Germany.
TERRITORY is an eight-song, six-string shotgun affair of moxie and melody. Lots of meaty guitars, it''s an emotional collection of aggressive and honest lyrics to sink your teeth into.
PLANETA ROCK RADIO in Argentina says TERRITORY has, "Ripping guitars, and contagious songs".
THE BOX 101, a 100,000-watt powerhouse rock station and ROCK AND A HARD PLACE MAGAZINE from the U.S. mid-west calls TERRITORY "A Dark, Heavy and Majestic sound."
KTD, the group that cranked out TERRITORY is a Boston hard rock guitar band, and if vintage Led Zeppelin, Stone Temple Pilots and an arena rock mix of classic Aerosmith and Van Halen guitar shredding is the music you love, then this CD is for you.
MEDDOZAROCK a magazine from Switzerland says TERRITORY reminds you of the "Guns and Roses, appetite for destruction era, you can hear (the great playing) on every song on this record".
STUBBLE MUSICZINE of Boston notes TERRITORY "infuses elements of the BEATLES, ALICE COOPER, JAMES GANG and LED ZEPPELIN with some good old fashioned blistering guitar to create an edgy pop/rock sound that''s all their own".
Alternate tunings, chunky riffs, an Eastern flavor meets Deep Purple with an edgy late 70''s vibe, TERRITORY is a true rock CD that is proud of its musical roots complete with monster riffs and guitar solos. If that kind of CD is in your collection, then TERRITORY will fit right in.
So who is KTD?
It all started many decibels and a few moons ago when we played in the Boston band Axminster. We had airplay, a few regional hits, headlined clubs, got great reviews and did gigs with Metallica, Extreme, Twisted Sister, Molly Hatchet, Foghat and Lita Ford. We played everywhere they let us! By the early 90''s melodic rock was all but banished from the airwaves in favor of the Seattle sound and after a grueling tour and showcases for all the major labels Axminster went on hiatus.
The millenium came, and an independent record label based in New York City, got a hold of the Axminster master tapes, signed the band and released a CD that spanned the group''s recording career. At an outdoor concert, before hundreds of fans, the band played a reunion show. The response was so overwhelming that the nearly original roster of Steve Sera, Mike Lamm, Benny Fiorentino & Danny Callan decided reform the group. Yes, the band was back together.
Although the group had a successful track record, "We wanted to try some new musical ideas. We didn''t want to rehash what we did in the 80''s." Notes Fiorentino. "We called ourselves Kick the Dog, a sort of wake-up call for us to get it going again."
"KTD is a metaphor for breaking free of the grind. We jammed and wrote songs that reflect where we are now as people and as musicians, this dog still has a few new tricks, just needed some room to run" states Sera.
KTD recorded and released a CD that gave them the space. TERRITORY on Hydrant Records explores new ground for the band, a musical departure. Alternate tunings for alternate egos. It''s a new crack in the old fault. KTD added Dave Q, to the band, mixing in his unique brand of piano, synthesizer and keyboard licks to get that full arena sound and to expand the boundaries.
Songs off the CD are getting airplay and both regional and international magazines and webzines have been raving about the "new" band.
NEW ENGLAND ENTERTAINMENT DIGEST writes, "TERRITORY is a welcome punch of reminiscence. Filled with hot riffs and cool downs in all the right places. This CD EXPLODES...
ADRENALIN ''ZINE of Europe reviews "I love their attitude. The guitars are above and beyond, fantastic! Mid-tempo, melodic and transcending."
"We marked our spot, this is the music we like". Says drummer and vocalist Mike Lamm. KTD is guitar driven rock and roll, with no apologies for the roots from which it came. Fans of vintage and modern hard rock love this band.
So here we are, and here it is. We''re still making music, playing for anyone, anywhere they want to hear our songs. We had a blast in the past and we have the scrapbook, battle scars and the road kill to prove it! But more importantly, it rocks, we like playing together and we look forward to making music in the future!
TERRITORY is modern rock songwriting with a classic feel.
