ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If you like your hard rock/alt metal totally raw with emotion, unrestrained, loud and artistically violent, SMEER is a band you don't want to sleep on. SMEER will appeal to fans of Godsmack and Disturbed, with their incredible crunchy guitar sound layered with full bodied, strong melodic vocals.

Conducive to speeding tickets, causing inflated senses of personal power and meeting your own personal held-down, festering angst, "Loud & Clear" is an album that will move through you and take you over, and like a scrub-brush, will have all those greasy pockets of "I've-had-enough!" worked out of your system in one listen. Simply put, if it's powerful, crushing, hard rock you want, search no more.


Recent Achievements of SMEER's include:

SMEER has received word that "Seed", the third single off their debut CD Loud & Clear, was ranked #3 in the CFAI's (New Brunswick) "Song of the Year 2003" voting. Evanescence's "Bring Me to Life" and Audioslave's "Like a Stone" were the only songs to receive more votes than "Seed"! Pretty good company by any standards!

SMEER has been approached by an extreme motorcycle stunt video group to have SMEER music featured in an upcoming video production. The video is scheduled for a springtime 2004 release - more information to follow.

SMEER's song "MOTHER" earned 2nd place in the world renown International Songwriting Competition competing with over 7000 entrants with the judging panel including Matchbox 20's Rob Thomas, Raine Maida, lead vocalist of Our Lady Peace, as well as record company executives Monte Lipman (President, Universal Records) and Jimmy Bralower (VP A&R, Atlantic Records).

SMEER has signed a European record deal with Lion Music out of Finland that will see not only SMEER's debut CD released and distributed throughout the entire continent but also the follow-up CD that SMEER will be recording during spring 2004 - stay tuned!

SMEER are featured in the January 2004 edition of "Metal Edge Magazine" as part of an ASS-9 Records promotion. SMEER is happy to be affiliated with US label ASS-9 and will continue to foster and enhance their mutual working relationship.

Derek Silvers, the founder of the successful www.cdbaby.com, (a website that sells independent artist CD's) had this to say about SMEER recently - "I love your "Loud & Clear" CD so much I'm going to feature it on the FRONT PAGE of CD Baby for a few days. We're REALLY picky about what goes on the front page. We get about 75 new albums a DAY coming in here now, (about 30,000 total), and yours is one of the best I've ever heard."

SMEER put on an incredibly energized performance during the 2003 Canadian Music Week at the Hard Rock Café in Toronto. Reviewed by Chart Music Magazine music critic Jenny Yuen, "SMEER is progressing well towards world domination" with their refreshing sound that Jenny describes as "Soundgarden meets Metallica meets Nickelback".

A recent live performance review by DJ Tim McKay from the FOX in Fredericton - "SMEER came out of the gate with full force and never looked back...they literally pinned you against the wall and made you wonder why these guys aren't already HUGE?!!!"

Southern Ontario's flagship rock format radio station, 97.7 HTZ FM chose SMEER as one of 15 2002 ROCKSEARCH finalists for the 2nd year in a row!

SMEER is attracting the attention of important music industry players. Recently accepted into www.TAXI.com and being featured recently as part of www.demodiaries.com April 29th presentation of upcoming, noteworthy bands - they are presently receiving interest from major labels, management and lawyers from around the globe.

SMEER has entered into a licensing agreement with Sencit Music out of the USA that will see SMEER music globally promoted to film, television, internet and other commercial ventures.

Metal like a Bad-A** truck down main street!!!
Yall know what I'm talkin 'bout. This is monstrous metal. Crushing. Seering. Angst-ridden. Yet tender in its own way. I hate to say it because I hate country music, but this is like "Bad-A** cowboy metal". Cool as hell.

snakeeater

great indie cd
this is one of THE BEST indie cd's ive heard all year. absoloutly great from top to bottom with very strong lyrics and melodic overtones. these songs hit you where u live. check out "mother" this sounds gay but i almost cried when i heard it. im serious.great work guys. rock on

Tamara Turner, CD Baby.com


I have to wonder if this band is ever misspelled as "smear" because with their grinding, aggressive, agitated and tastefully abrasive sound, it sure as heck sounds like *something* is being pulverized. If you like your hard rock/alt metal totally raw with emotion, unrestrained, loud and artistically violent, Smeer is a band you don't want to sleep on. Conducive to speeding tickets, causing inflated senses of personal power and meeting your own personal held-down, festering angst, "Loud & Clear" is an album that will move through you and take you over, and like a scrub-brush, will have all those greasy pockets of "I've-had-enough!" worked out of your system in one listen. Simply put, if it's powerful, crushing, hard rock you want, search no more.

Its ok.
Too many bands just like this. Any weekend in Phoenix you can see 50 of them. Overall, good production, but just too much like everything else out there. Something needs to change. Maybe some old school hard rock would be a nice change.

vince

Hatchet

Throw down! Thats what they do.
Hard hitting music like I want it. Great tones on that guitar man. Love the power chords as the sound melts away the cold lethargy of my mind. Vocals are good and I anticipate the lyrics. Mother is a fantastic song. Great band. Soon as they get more in here at CD Baby I'm get'n it.

sounds great guys!!

This band will be huge.
I bought the first CD this band put out last year and when I received this one I was totally blown away. It kicks ass in every sense of the word and the songs are killer all the way threw. If you like great honest and emotionally charged music do not pass on this CD. Get it today and spread the word, these guys are the real deal.
