Album Notes
137 -

New York's 137 was originally forged in 1997 by vocalist / bass player Keith Baughman in the remote woodlands of Northern Michigan. A metal concoction consisting mainly of Sludge, Doom and a touch of Death became the eventual result. 137 has since issued a 5 track EP entitled "Product Of The Environment" as well as numerous compilations such as the latest 7" split vinyl release with Cincinnati's Elusive Travel. Keith, partnered with sister Denise on guitar, has built an effective line up completed by drummer Andrew Close of High Volume Components and guitarist Carlos Ameri formerly of Bone Shelter. 137 recently returned to the studio in early 2005 and recorded a new four track EP. The final result was the band's latest "Force Controlled Culture" released this summer in conjunction with Watchmen Records.

This is some rocking shit , BUT I only give it 4 stars because the singer sounds like hes trying to throw up but can't!! the music is great any way!!!


Keep On Chuggin'.
Now these are the type of slow songs I dig; nice and heavy. Also, they shouldn't say they have anything to do with death metal, cause death metal never sounds this good.


Big Ol' Raisin' Pie for 137 . Right On !!!!
This cd has been in my truck cd player since the day i got it , prolly be there for a couple more weeks too...(note to self... Headbanging and driving Do Not Mix....).
Keep On Keepin' On... 137...
