A great CD no one has heard of

"This was a really good CD, which had the short lived single Shuttergut (Caroline). Shuttergut was the track that got me to listen to the album, but songs like Me Compassionate, Transcindental Drift, Aphrodight, and Street Monkey keep me listening to it. Definately worth picking up, even though the price has gone up."
A hard-hitting, intense musical experience.

"Soak, an up-and-coming band out of Austin, TX, is sure to be a huge success. Their music is a combination of rock/funk/heavy metal/industrial rhythms, sure to make the true music lover tap his feet or headbang. The running bass lines lend a funky groove to the sometimes industrial sounding samples, while Jason Demitri's voice can, at the same time, be rough and throaty and beautifully strong and clear. The music on this CD is great; very powerful rhythms combine with a wide background of musical tastes to create a sound that is uniquely Soak! In their first release, "Me Compassionate," Soak uses a very hard-hitting drum beat to get the listener going. The listener is then thrust into a multi-layered musical experience, with heavy bass guitar and sampling. In my favorite song, "Aphrodite," Soak switches to what would be considered a slower mode for them, but it definitely expresses that these guys have talent, influenced by funk and jazz alike. The middle bridge of the song is a very funky segue into a jazz-like riff, which eventually leads back into the original funky sounds of the song. Another great song on their album is "Shutter Gut (Caroline)." This is probably the most heavily sampled song on the CD, and was supposed to be their third release. This is definitely a very heavy tune, with power riffs and double-time drumming taking center stage. A "must listen" for anybody who loves heavy metal. But the best thing about this debut CD is that is appeals to many different music lovers in the alternative genre. Check it out and let me know what you think!"
Soak rocks!

"If you like alternative and industrial, then this album is for you. Their music really relates to Gravity Kills, so if you like Gravity Kills you will love Soak. Their live show is also really great because the singer loves to dive off the stage!!!"
