HTD is the band to watch in 2004!
 
With a new album out, inclusion in several extreme videos...
and a distribution deal and music video in the works...HTD
is destined to take the music industry by storm in 2004!
The band plans to tour extensively throughout the year
promoting their newly released album, "Healing Through
Distortion."
 
HTD, brewed in September of 1999, is hard hitting, 4 piece
band that quickly adopted the Baltimore music scene as its
home. HTD's sound is an infusion of Kight's driving metal
riffs, Welsh's slap driven bass grooves, Knight's
thundering percussive antics and Berry's raw throaty
screams.
 
While HTD has no agenda, and writes with the intentions of
therapeutic self-release, HTD's hard-hitting delivery
combined with raw aggression and unparalleled energy has
been infectious with local concertgoers and both domestic
and international fans abroad. HTD delivers uninhibited
rage and fury while seamlessly capturing the audience's
desire for melody and composition.
 
Capturing their passion and aggression, HTD released "HTD -
Happiness Through Drinking" in August of 2001. This first
full-length CD has been widely received and embraced by a
growing fan base. HTD continues to receive rave reviews of
their first recorded initiative. Through full utilization of
the Internet and its vast medium of resources, their debut CD
has received praise from fans throughout the world. While
staying true to there instincts, influences, history and
roots, HTD's music has managed to appeal to the masses.
HTD has received such recognition as Megakungfu.com's
"Artist of the Month" and received the Megakungfui award
for "Best New Artist" and "Album of the Year" for 2001.
HTD has enjoyed sharing the stage with many of their peers
in the unsigned market as well as national acts such as DRI,
Nonpoint, Nothingface, Dry Kill Logic, Bile, Overkill, Nile,
Hoods, Dog Fashion Disco and Five Pointe 0.
 
We would love to send you the band press kit and demo. Please
let us know where we should mail the package too, along with
who we should address the package to personally.  
 
You may also feel free to visit us on the web at
www.htdmusic.com or www.cmtproductions.com
 
We look forward to hearing back from you.
Many Thanks,
Tammy Darrow
