New band alert: Gemini Syndrome

GS_Photo1 (2).jpg B&@ blurToday I received a press release and links to a video for a new band signed to Warner Bros. records called Gemini Syndrome.  Now, I get a few press releases every now and then but anything I don’t particularly like, I won’t push on my page.  After watching the video, which you can watch below, I really, really dig this band.  This is a pretty bad ass track, if you like metal.  Have a look at the video here:

And have a look at the press release, which also has tour dates, here:

For Immediate Release:

GEMINI SYNDROME KICK OFF TOUR WITH MUSHROOMHEAD

ON FEBRUARY 8TH

LISTEN TO NEW TRACK “PLEASURE AND PAIN” NOW

            

February 1, 2013 – (Burbank, CA)–  Gemini Syndrome encapsulates both ends of the spectrum. The band conjures ethereal alternative melodies and then tempers them with gnashing, guttural distortion.

These five musicians—Aaron, Rich, Mike, AP, and Brian— all from diverse musical bands and worlds converged when the guys discovered that the spiritual musings of Aaron melded with Rich, AP and Mikes taste for dark and melodious rhythms. It was when Aaron’s fascination for the illuminati and mysticism caught Brian’s attention and sealed the unbreakable bond that would then extend between each of the members. They began residing under one roof, to live, sleep, and breathe music together communally as a band in the truest sense.

After some early demos and cutting their teeth on the road, the group retreated to Las Vegas to complete what would become their first offering with Kevin Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, Ozzy Osbourne, In This Moment).

Their progressive fascinations bare resemblance to their musical ethos. Aaron will reference clandestine secrecy of “The Enlightened” in the same breath as espousing the merits of Eastern Buddhist ideology. At the same time, Brian speaks of his Freemasonry studies and owns a collection of literature any occult scholar would envy.

Songs like “Pleasure and Pain” rail with coarse riffs and haunting words, “In all of us is a sin that begins and doesn’t end until we syphon the last breath”. The ties that bind us all are the most vibrant and volatile. “Pleasure And Pain” Click here to listen to “Pleasure And Pain, ” and Click here to view the lyric video.

“Gemini” in Zodiac represents “The Twins” and “Syndrome” which has meaning of a person’s “innate condition” form together to represent the duality within all of us.

There are bonds to everything at the end of the day—from the music to the message. Now, it’s up to you to uncover the meaning for yourself.
