Biography

Cartel is the name of at least six different groups:

1. Cartel is an American pop punk band from Conyers, Georgia that formed in 2003. The current members of the band include vocalist/guitarist Will Pugh, lead guitarist Joseph Pepper, bassist Nic Hudson, and drummer Kevin Sanders. Their four studio albums are titled Chroma (2005), Cartel (2007), Cycles (2009) and Collider (2013).

2. Cartel is a German hip-hop group which have mostly Turkish members, who released a self-titled album in 1995. For the “Cartel” project, three bands got together: “Da Crime Posse” , “Erci E” and “Karakan”. This album was released in 1995 and soon after the bands went their separate ways. The album gained immediate popularity in Turkey when it was first released and stayed at top of the lists for more than 13 weeks.

3. Cartel were also a band from Bristol UK they released an EP called Glowing Hairdo in 1998 with the songs 1.Glowing Hairdo 2. Do you love me? 3. Past lives

4. A collaboration between trance DJs John Askew and John O’Callaghan, who released the song “Moments” under this name in 2007.

5. Underground producer Cartel, one half of the Hoodgrown Productions duo, makes his debut with a throwback album of sorts. Combing hard beats provided by him and “real” lyrics from some of illest new upcoming artists on the scene, Cartel’s Prepare For Glory represents a time when hip hop was still about “beats & rhymes”.

    They haven't released a bad album but they haven't also released a fantastic album front to back yet. I hope the best is yet to come. Band is consistent I guess.

    I think that no matter how "mature" our taste gets, this is that one band that we'll always go back to. They've been so consistent with impeccable pop melodies that it feels criminal to compare the albums. I'm in love with Collider. It's perfect. It's great to see the band grow in the best way possible. Now if you don't mind, I need to listen to Thin Air for the millionth time.

    Okay why are people comparing it to Chroma, there's their self-titled and Cycles, you know. I think all Cartel albums are really different, but they're all good in their own way. If you don't appreciate it, don't listen to Cartel. I'm still checking out Collider.. and so far i say its pretty slow-tempo and more poppy... but that doesn't make it boring. It's just a different direction they took. I do love their pop punk up-tempo songs but eh, in life you can't always get what you want. Learn to appreciate whats given to you.

    Cartel didn't try to outdo Chroma, and they certainly didn't try to write those songs filled with layers all over again(whaa?) Why would they anyway? They succeeded in writing a catchy, melodic, straight up rock record. The hooks on Collider are the best they've ever written. Hands down. It's a shame people aren't talking about it more and there's only been a few shouts here since its release.

    New album is super boring :( Tempos are way too slow and the compositions not as full of many layers and tone like Chroma was. Disappointing
