This is one CD I have been waiting a while for . I had the chance to see this band perform at 2013’s Rock on the Range and was given a sampler at the time . However I have been anxiously awaiting this bands full length release . Well the wait is almost over for the release and I could not be any happier . The album “ Lux “ which will be available on Warner Bros Records on Sept 10,2013 is one of the most anticipated albums of 2013 . The song “Pleasure and Pain “ opens up the release with hook driven guitars and a strong melody with the great vocal range of singer Aaron Nordstrom's powerful lyrics and performance . “ Basement “ is the next song which covers the human experience in all its agony and ecstasy . This is the musical equivalence of a great novel with heroes and villains , self doubt and finally redemption . In addition the track “ Resurrection “ follows the suit with what seems like two separate singers however its all Nordstrom . The bands consists of Aaron Nordstrom, Rich Juzwick, Mike Salerno, Alessandro Paveri, & Brian Steele Medina . “ Mourning Star “ which is a radio friendly song but with enough pure metal appease even the toughest crowd .I like the line the “ Enemy is everywhere “ The album contains twelve songs all of which are top notch . Some of my favorites are “ Left of Me “ “ Babylon ‘ and “ Lux “ The band will soon start a fall tour in support of Five Finger Death Punch . To see if they are coming to a city near you please check their official website at http://www.geminisyndrome.com/ and be prepared to rock !
