"Boston punks Over the Edge are living proof there is little distance between Johnny Cash and Mike Ness (Social Distortion). Their driving brand of American punk rock suggests that if Elvis were a teenager today, he'd be running a Les Paul through a Marshall stack. These guys have seen it all before and they have stuck with the classics." - Download.com
OVER THE EDGE
Rotten Drunk Records
Tales From thee Blacktop Burnout
Over The Edge is one of the best local proponents of one of the most vile, disgusting, revolting forms of music known to mankind, which, of course means its the best, namely punk rock.
This is there first full length CD and it doesnt disappoint from their previous EPs. From the start this platter has explosive fast rhythms and the first song, Detonate is apt as its the first of many dynamic dangerous ditties like dynamite- going off in your ears tunes guaranteed to blow you brains to smithereens. The breakneck songs like that one and Television are great but I also enjoy the anthem like One Nation, my pick for top of the charts, and the influence of 50s rock n roll in The Kids and Do the Drag. Check them out before the worlds all blown away and your mind becomes like mine. (Slimedog - The Noise Magazine)
Over the Edge features Boston hardcore veterans Fred Evicci (x-Out Cold) and Mike Mahoney (x-Blood for Blood).
With all the members of OTE having their roots firmly planted in the early punk sound, it's only natural that Over the Edge's sound is a bit more Rock 'N' Roll than a lot of today's punk bands. "the roots of punk have always been in straight ahead rock 'n' roll and always will be", says songwriter Evicci.
These influences can be heard on their 1st full length CD on Rotten Drunk records called "Tales from the Blacktop Burnout". Produced by Jim Siegel (Dropkick Murphys, Blood for Blood, Darkbuster) in Stoughton, MA.
