Sonic Syndicate, do we like?
« on: October 31, 2007, 06:46:42 pm »
I had never heard of this band until recently. I was watching a WarCraft PvP video (Drakedog 7, awesome video to my fellow WoW players) and it included two songs from this band:

Aftermath & Psychic Suicide

I think both songs were absolutely awesome, so I was debating ordering the CD that just so happened to include both of them.

Turns out this band is from Sweden, go figure. I'll probably order the CD for those two songs alone, but I was curious of general opinions of this band.

Not really my kind of music, but they're OK.

I was fortunate enough to hear a few other songs at work via www.sonicsyndicate.com from their new album - unfortunately youtube and that kind of thing are blocked.

Unfortunately not all the tracks will play for some reason (I think it has to do with me being at work, I get this kind of stuff alot). But of the two additional tracks I heard, so far it's still got my blood going. I think I'm gunna try to find a local copy and buy the album. I'd love to find a new band and a new album where I enjoy every track. That'd be a nice change. :P

Do not like. Vocals are too metalcorey for me.

Alrighty. I tried to pick up their album yesterday but couldn't locate it.

I'll go ahead and order it, methinks. :)

Well, they are Melodic Death Metalcore, so it's not weird that it's "Metalcorey". :P

They're Ok, as some probably know, I don't like Metalcore, so yeah.

I sorta like Denied, it's kinda good, but meh, not a band I want to listen to all the time.

No, it's Melodic Death with Metalcore influences, that is, it's more Melodic Death than Metalcore. ;D

I liked it, but I showed it to a friend who loved it. The stuff is definitely more her speed. So thanks for bringing them to my (and her) attention.
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

I really hate this band... I think they're the only band worldwide to have copied the "Soundtrack to your escape" album by In Flames. They could have been inspired by the excellent early stuff of In Flames, they could have had a metalband look, but no.

They decided to copy the worst In Flames album, and to have an emo look... Oh and I've seen them live, it sucks balls ;D

I didn't even know there were two singers, they have exactly the same voice, what's the point?!

Anyway...

I've listened to their two albums, I've never noticed there were two singers, and in live it's even worse, they do have the same voice exactly. I was with two friends of mine who thought exactly the same...
