"This band’s name well describes the type of music on the CD: it is big, powerful, and moves mass at a steady pace. The opening track, “Angry Sunday,” sets the tone for the rest of the album, and the song’s title alone will give you more than a hint of where it’s going. The meter isn’t fast, but the bass and drums push hard underneath sizzling guitars and throaty vocals. Much of the album follows in this way, and by the end, your ears will indeed have been thoroughly plowed. What’s interesting about this Milwaukee group’s self-released debut is that while it’s as hard as the name implies, it seems to defy categorization. Certainly, heavy metal would be the easiest bin in which to drop it, but it also has elements of punk, especially in the lyrics and vocal style, and the occasional synthesizer bursts lend a trippy characteristic that makes the group sound more like Pink Floyd at their heaviest than anything else." - Maximum Ink Music Magazine (March 2008)

Dad The Plow is a three piece rock group from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Their style emerges from such influences as Tool, the Foo Fighters, Seether, Chevelle, and various other hard-rock groups. With such inspiration Dad The Plow’s sound can be described as a mix of hard hitting riffs with melodic overtones. The band pools from all four members’ creative talents to write their material in hopes of capturing unique yet familiar hard-rock music. Chris Howard fronts the band with bass & vocals, Remo brings in his own flair with hungry guitars and keyboard overtones, and Mike Runge provides a solid rhythm on the drums. The band has played numerous shows over the past four years, ranging from local lounges with the likes of local heavy weights Bad Boy, and Spiral Trance, to venues with national acts such as Trouble, Bang Tango, and Pretty Boy Floyd. Dad The Plow continues to perform throughout Wisconsin and Illinois on a regular basis.
