—Sonic Syndicate, Denied
Sonic Syndicate are a Melodic Death Metal (despite some claiming them to be Metalcore) from Falkenberg, Sweden, formed in 2002 as Fallen Angels, a name they dropped in 2005. The band started gaining significant momentum with thier second release Only Inhuman and followed it up a year later with the similar sounding Love and Other Disasters album. After this the band fell on hard times, clean vocalist Roland left due to personal reasons and new singer Nathan was hired. With Nathan came more than a new voclaist, namely pressure from their record label to adopt a more comercial sound, the resulting album polarized the fans and eventually pushed Richard to quit the band.
