Harmful

This German band has been making the rounds for a number of years, releasing several albums since debuting in 1995. They've attracted some recent interest due to the interesting addition of former Faith No More bassist Billy Gould on guitar, who produced their recent 7 album and then decided to sign on as second guitarist. Style-wise (based on '06's Sis Masis), they blend the hardened guitar sound of, say, Helmet, with the more quirky pop-metal edge that invariably brings Queens Of The Stone Age to mind. Though rarely do they get seriously heavy, they do have a refreshing hard rock style that, apart from the aforementioned influences, is pretty original. Gould announced his amicable departure from the group at the end of 2007.
