a garage demo, and two self released EPs Sonic
Syndicate is now ready to attack the World with their debut album
“Eden Fire”. Sonic
Syndicate may be comprised of very young members, with guitarist
Robin clocking in at only 17 years of age as the youngest, and guitarist
Roger clocking in at 22 as the oldest but Sonic
Syndicate sounds very mature and experienced and with a great
production this album will be received with open arms by many Metal fans
out there. I’m sure about that.
Fire” is comprised of ten tracks broken down into three different
segments. The praise for the band’s previous two EPs “Black Lotus”
and “Extinction” was so high that the band felt it necessary to
include the works on their debut album so all the masses could get a
chance to hear the material, since the EPs are now out of print. They
re-recorded the songs from the EPs along with three brand new tracks and
here is the final result.
my opinion this album opens with the best track of them all,
“Jailbreak” with its great drumming, powerful riffs and a very
memorable chorus… and then this album somehow die a bit. The rest of
the songs are okay but nothing really stands out in my opinion. Some songs are fast, some are not, some have a
few slow downs in the rhythms, but they all sound very similar… at
least to me. Don’t get me wrong here, this not a bad album
however I find the songs forgettable and anonymous except for a few
riffs and the first track.
If you are into Modern Heavy Metal, Thrash or Melodic Death Metal I think you should give this album a listen… maybe you are in for a positive surprise.
