Hemlock has already established themselves as a hard working, touring band with a loyal and expanding fan base. The 'Lock continues setting examples to bands to work hard towards their goals and not wait around for a handout from the industry. Hemlock is a good heavy brutal onslaught of metal, with an arsenal of catchy lyrics, creative breakdowns and melodic hooks. The live shows are fun, rowdy, and energetic. Hemlock gets the crowd involved and puts on the show of a lifetime, every time. You can keep up with the band through the band official website www.hemlockworld.com or www.myspace.com/hemlock and check out upcoming shows, chat on the messageboard, see pics of the band, and read about the adventures on the road.

Released one self-titled EP in 2011. (9) Released one eponymous album on Deram in 1972., Featuring ex-Keef Hartley Band vocalist Miller Anderson. Drummer Eric Dillon and organ/piano players Peter Dines and Mick Weaver had played on Anderson's 'Bright City' album the previous year. The two releases also shared a producer in Neil Slaven, who produced a large selection of Deram's releases including the Keef Hartley Band albums. The music on the Hemlock album is somewhat similar to Anderson's 'solo' release, being a solid mix of folky, bluesy and country rock with vaguely progressive leanings. Anderson's talent as a songwriter, plus all round good performances and production elevate this above the average dreary 'blues rock' of the time.
