(2002 – aktuell)

Sonic Syndicate ist eine schwedische Melodic Death Metal-Band aus Falkenberg. Die Band wurde 2002 als Fallen Angels gegründet. Zu den größten Einflüssen zählen Bands wie In Flames und Killswitch Engage. Die Band selber nennt ihren Stil „(Un)true nuclear metal“

Die Brüder Roger Sjunesson und Richard Sjunesson und ihr Cousin Robin Sjunesson spielten im Jahre 2002 mit Schulkameraden in diversen Bands. Da die drei ein eigenes Projekt mit einer anderen musikalischen Ausrichtung starten wollten gründete das Trio die Band Fallen Angels. Zum damaligen Zeitpunkt spielte die Band traditionellen Heavy Metal, der maßgeblich von Iron Maiden und Helloween beeinflusst wurde.

Im März 2003 spielt die Band ihr erstes Konzert im Rahmen eines Talentwettbewerbs an ihrer Schule. Den Wettbewerb konnten sie zwar nicht gewinnen, dennoch war die Band mit den Reaktionen des Publikums und der Konkurrenzbands zufrieden.

Innerhalb eines Jahres nahm die Band drei Demos auf. Das zweite und dritte Demo wurden im Studio Mega (u.a. Lake of Tears, The Crown, Beseech) eingespielt. Die Fallen Angels spielten im Anschluss viele Konzerte in ganz Skandinavien.

Im Dezember 2004 unterzeichnete die Band einen Vertrag mit der US-amerikanischen Firma Pivotal Records. Zu dieser Zeit machte sich die Band viele Gedanken über ihren Namen. Letztendlich änderte die Band ihren Namen in Sonic Syndicate. Der neue Name passte nach Meinung der Band besser zur Musik.

    I can't really get into the new album as a whole, honestly. I dig the verses -- all the songs have kickass verses... But most of them also have really shitty choruses. Which are supposed to be the best part of the songs. Only "Unbreakable" had a really good chorus, imo. Though I must say I REALLY like that one. The chorus in What We Shared has two parts, where the first part is boring, but the second part, which plays for the first time in the second chorus, is really good. Aside from that, there are the choruses in Black Hole Halo, Before You Finally Break and Diabolical Work of Art, which are okay, and then the rest are crap. A couple of them are even astoundingly bad...

    Burn this City EP was the last good thing they did imo. However, they kinda went downhill every release since they formed.

    Can't they just leave this band rest in peace? Why do some of their members plus that new guy still release some kind of crappy music under that name? How about making a new band? It's worse than what happened to Mayhem back then. Eww.

    I also think Nathan is a very good vocalist and I really enjoy his vocals a lot. Still I think the new album is a metal-wannabie mess. I want them to play pop again.

    I dig Nathan. He's a cool dude. As in nice. And he's a good singer and harsh vocalist as well. People's hate towards him is totally unfounded.

    I know most of you guys hate Nathan, but you gotta admit that profile picture is pretty badass.

    The new album is great and much better than We Rule the Night. Maybe even the best Sonic Syndicate album for me but will have to listen more to confirm that.

    The new album is pretty good. The choruses annoy me. They all sound the same. The versus sound different from each other and most of them kick ass. It has a nice mix between the old stuff and We Rule the Night. So if you want something better than We Rule the Night, I think it's worth a listen. IMO I think We Rule the Night was better but I know anyone who doesn't like Nathan will definitely disagree with me on that.

    I expected a complete trainwreck of the new album, but it's actually not that bad. I quite enjoy it. It's not "Only Inhuman" but that's no surprise. [2]

    I really, really wanted to like this album but it just doesn't do anything for me. It saddens me cause it really sounds like they tried their best but this music simply isn't strong at all. The fact that now they only have one singer doesn't help at all cause the vocal dynamics got a lot more boring and predictable (of course this doesn't apply to Before You Finally Break which is a great track). Hate to say it but unless I'll find it at some ridiculous price I ain't gonna buy it.

    That's a quote from Dr. Strangelove, couldn't help it. For me all the songs sounding exactly the same is a huge weak point. And I really think old SS didn't sound any more different from other melodeath acts than any other melodeath act. They had their style but it still was generic. I've stopped listening to MDM because of all those simillar bands boring me to hell.

    Also, I don't agree that old SoSy was boring. Sure, the formula was was not exactly anything special, but their sound was distinct and entirely their own. Largely because of Roland, I believe. There really isn't any other band that sound like old SoSy. The closest one would come would be the "Alive" and "Tomorrow Is Today" singles by dEMOTIONAL.

    Where does the "mein fuhrer" part come in? If there is a weak point in the album, aside from the songs overall being pretty similar (though still distinguishable), it's that the choruses generally aren't very strong. Only "Unbreakable" has a truly great chorus. Though on the other hand, the verses are fucking awesome. On all the tracks imo. Very catchy while still being heavy.

    Took a listen to a few songs from the new album and I'm dissapointed. I don't give a crap if a band sells out or not (hint: metal is already mainstream. Sorry, listened to too much underground music to deny it). SS swapped their boring (if solid) melodeath sound to actualy kinda' unique style on We Rule The Night. Sure, it was a sell out album, but it was interesting at that, much more so than the generic music they played before. And now, thanks to as always wonderfully tolerant metal community that shits at every band's attempt at changing sound, they sell out again. Unfortunetly seems like attempting to please the metal massess resulted in a boring-ass mix of trying-too-hard-to-be-METAL-MEIN-FUHRER-I-CAN-GROWL!-verses and hey-we're-still-catchy!-choruses. I still have to take a listen to the entire album but from what I've read here.. What a dissapointment.
