Mushroomhead
Mushroomhead
Mushroomhead's music unfolds like a waking dream. At once surreal and vivid, intense and intelligent--and impossible to ignore both aurally and visually--the Ohio octet's Universal debut, XX (Double X), delivers a left-of-center fervor, as evidenced in such songs as XX's creepily compelling debut single, 'Solitaire Unraveling'. And the time is certainly ripe for the masked marauders of Mushroomhead to unleash their highly musical, totally unusual, fully compelling onslaught on the public. Inked to Universal in late 2001, Mushroomhead's XX was previously released independently, the updated Universal version remixed by Toby Wright (Alice In Chains) with three additional tracks added. And with the completion of the Dean Karr-produced video (Marilyn Manson) for 'Solitaire Unraveling' the always-impassioned, sometimes spooky soundscape that is Mushroomhead has reached an apex. Since 1993, when the Cleveland-bred octet formed as a side project, no other band was wearing masks and jumpsuits and purveying ultra-melodic, ultra-dramatic music as influenced by Faith No More and Mr. Bungle as it was by hardcore, metal and even techno. In XX, Mushroomhead's years of hard work and hard music have come to a fearsome fruition.
Gemini Syndrome
Gemini Syndrome
Bursting on the scene, comes Gemini Syndrome from Los Angeles. And by bursting that is no understatement. Although only officially a band since January 2010, they are poised to become the next big thing happening in music. Their spectacular live show, brilliant musicianship accompanied by Aaron Nordstrom's melodic voice that still retains that metal edge, have raised the bar in the Los Angeles rock scene.

Rich Juzwick (Guitar) - Gemini Syndrome was borne out of Rich's great riffs with an ear for arrangements and the development of the music.

Aaron Nordstrom (Vox) - His melodic harmonies prefacing clear legible growls are fantastic, and his tone, timing, and lyrics are what make him a truly talented vocalist.

Brian Steele Medina (Drums) - Incredible backbone and clean beats, that aren't over bearing. A very visual drummer with great stage presence.

Mike Salerno (Guitar) - Brilliant guitar player whose rhythms set the tone for the harmonic flow of the music, and backing vocals that make the live show sonically full.

Alessandro "A.P." Paveri (Bass) - Talented italian born bass player that lends not only exceptional bass lines to the rhythm, but his unique bass style is also vitally important to the bands sound.

Gemini Syndrome is one of those perfect storms that come along in music every now and then, to create a package that works wonders. By no means is this is "local" band trying to make it in the scene. Produced by Mikey Doling (Snot/Soulfly/InVitro), even their live show lends credence to the fact that this is a polished product, ready to conquer. Their songs are hook after hook and are radio friendly tunes that connect with listeners, regardless of what genre they follow. That is the key; this is not a metal band or pop band or any one thing. They incorporate many influences to develop their own sound that crosses over musical genres. As well produced as they are, their live performance is every bit of what is on their recordings and so much more.
