With a singer who draws comparisons such as “a modern day
Janis meets Otep” and a unique blend of aggressive rock
influences MONGREL has been on a roll since their change to a
female singer 3 years ago. Called “the hardest working band in
Boston” (Metal Edge), MONGREL has released 2 EPs and a full
length album since 2010 and is gearing up to release their next EP “Evolution” in early

2014. “Evolution” was recorded by Jim Foster
(POD, Nullset), mixed by Dave Fortman (Slipknot, Otep, Mudvayne,
Evanescence, Soil) and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Metallica,
Pantera, Nirvana, The Cult). The lead off track and first single from
the EP entitled “Snakes” is set to be released in October 2013 at
the 10th annual Rock & Shock Festival in Worcester, MA where
Mongrel will share the stage with Danzig, Doyle, Otep, Butcher
Babies, and many more.

Mongrel has toured extensively in the US, repeatedly sharing
stages with rock, metal, and punk luminaries as diverse as
Godsmack, Halestorm, Korn, Gwar, The Misfits, FEAR, Sepultura,
Otep, Fu Manchu, Mindless Self Indulgence, Dizzy Reed
(Guns N’ Roses), Vision of Disorder, Prong, God Forbid, Trashlight
Vision, Piggy D’s Evacuation Plan (Rob Zombie bassist), Warrior
