STEREO TRANSMITTED DISEASE are a new band hailing from Philadelphia that play an interesting combination of the sleazy hard rock from days gone by and mix it up with a bit of a modern radio rock sound that ends up sounding somewhere in between Nickelback and Buckcherry.
The band plays an intricate and interesting brand of modern alt. rock that is covered in a sheen of progressive rock and a little smidge of the attitude of heavier punk pop in places, and really have done enough to stand out from the modern rock crowd with a fresh and invigorating sound that while totally radio-friendly…
Hey guys, have you heard of CLONECIRCLE? Don’t worry, until this album came across my desk neither had I. I was first struck by the awesome artwork on the digipack that is actually credited to the bands Vocalist/Bassist/ Keyboarder Martin Hellgren.

Saints and Sinner hails from up north in Rhode Island and I had not heard much from this outfit until I received their promo material.

When first receiving the Lord Volture promo package I was expecting it to be another typical power metal release with the same up tempo rhythm and shifts that dominates the genre and to be honest makes it more redundant then ever, but enough about what is not and let’s talk about what it is hey? Lord Volture plays heavy metal in a very traditional manner, in fact vocalist David Marceli’s voice is what gels the music together here so well…

Sweden’s native sons of Melodic Death Metal return with their 8th studio album titled “The Panic Broadcast” and it follows the same nu-metalcore death metal style that the bands ha been introducing in the past releases of “Stabbing The Drama” and “Sworn To A Great Divide”.
