Harsh Toke

Fabio sends this one in "appreciation" of the fact that we loved "Arctic", this is the other band of Arctic guitarist Figgy Figueroa.......again I will quickly seek out some info is possible........well, here's a bit:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Psychedelic rockers HARSH TOKE explore sound and spaceTHROUGH music. On the San Diego Acid Rock band's debut album Light Up and Live, loud, heavy guitars, swimming bass lines and smashing drums warp to full throttle, working together to launch the group's "Haze Maze" of unapologetic psychedelic-blues into interstellar overdrive. Recorded by Brian Ellis (also of the prog-rock band ASTRA) and mastered by Carl Saff (Earthless, OFF!, Unsane), HARSH TOKE's Light Up and Live will be released on November 19 via Tee Pee.
Led by ripping pro skater and rip-roaring guitarist Justin "Figgy" Figueroa, HARSH TOKE are equal parts atmospheric and anarchic, merging raging, blind fury musicianship with unprecedented white-knuckle volume abuse. Tense and surreal, HARSH TOKES' songs slowly build from hallucinatory haze into grand overtures of noise and feedback; a cosmic buffet of pounding, pummeling and punishing planes of sound. Heavy. Cosmic. Kinetic.

HARSH TOKE lay down sizzling grooves with every needle on the soundboard pinned to the red. If Blue Cheer could be called "Louder than God" in 1968, forty five years later, HARSH TOKE can easily be pegged as "Louder than Satan." RunFOR YOUR lives - into the din.
