Love & Opium / Press

" Sunday, January 29, 2012 Recently, I had a chance to sit down and listen to the self-titled debut album from the band Love & Opium. This is one great album! It’s put together well, and recorded with greater quality then most famous bands. This is definitely a band to be reckoned with. Their singer, Joey D., was nice enough to mail me out a copy of their CD. I’ll hopefully be checking them out at some upcoming shows. I hope you can check them out too. From their eponymous album, Love & Opium , “Bloodflower” is a songful trip down harmonies reminiscent of STP or Aersomith -inspiring. I believe the word, bloodflower, is in reference to a flower that is both beautiful and poisonous. According to Wikipedia, “Dogbane containscymarin, a cardiogenic toxin that causes cardiac arrhythmia in humans”. It is aptly named, being written close to the heart. " - MassBands.com (Jan 29, 2012)
