Mongrel, by definition, is a mixed-breed, and this female fronted band known as ?The hardest working band in Boston? (Metal Edge) lives up toits name. Fronted by Jessica Sierra, who has drawn comparisons to great vocalists ranging from Janis to Otep, the band mixes its hard rock, punk, and metal influences to rave reviews. With Evolution, the band members? diverse styles come together better than ever. Evolution was recorded by Jim Foster (POD, Nullset, Sully Erna), mixed by Dave Fortman (Slipknot, Soil, Otep, Evanescence), and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Pantera, Metallica, Soundgarden), bringing Mongrel?s songs and sound to their next evolutionary level.

1."Mongrel is more then punk, more then metal, they tread the line somewhere in between...a rare musical hybrid that brings the listener into their dangerous and heavy world. Then keeps them there, with beautiful, unapologetic force."
 - Dan Nelson (BlackGates, ex-Anthrax) 

2."If anybody knows about musical car crashes it's me! Mongrel embodies all that is great about punk rock. Their music sweats pure angst, driven by an audible destruction that is in rare form these days. And then there's the live show....wear a helmet!"
  - Piggy D., bassist, Rob Zombie 

3."Mongrel is hands down the hardest working punk rock machine in New England. With their aggressive work ethics, high-energy live shows and pure dedication to the mission, Mongrel's latest release "Fear, Lies, and Propaganda" will surely bring them to new levels of much deserved success. Even nuclear war could not stop these guys....check them out!" 
- Joe O'Brien, Owner, Rat Pak Records 

4."Mongrel go for the throat quicker than the bastardized canine from which they sequester their Hancock. The sobriquet under which they banner their aural beatings could not be more fitting. Plus, I hear they eat babies." 
- Argyle Goolsby, Blitzkid 

5."Mongrel take the DIY ethic of Black Flag, the anthems of the Misfits and throw a low slung Les Paul on it like Gn'R!" 
- Acey Slade, ex-Dope/Murderdolls/ Trashlight Vision/Wedenesday13/Amen 

6."Mongrel will bite you, then kick your ass musically in a way that you are going to love."
