Sonic Syndicate – Love and Other Disasters

{mosimage}From Sweden comes Sonic Syndicate, a band that maybe rings a bell for many of you having opened the American tour for Nightwish in the past. 

Sonic Syndicate belong to the same label than Nighwish and that certainly opened them a couple of doors to tour together. Apart from that, they also counted with the help in the mixing of this new album of Roberto Laghi, a real value when facing the composition of a new studio album. Roberto has also recently worked with their compatriots In Flames, and actually both bands are hitting the road together in this 2008. What you have here is a good collection of guttural voices, killing guitar riffs and powerful drums. Love and Other Disasters sounds hammering and consistent, with the Sjunnesson brothers taking good control of the band. Fans of bands like Crematory will really enjoy them, but for some other most classic metal fans, maybe it can ending up being a bit too brutal. 

Rating 3/5.
