SONIC SYNDICATE
ONLY INHUMAN
NUCLEAR BLAST

Upstart Swedish sextet Sonic Syndicate go for broke on ONLY INHUMAN, summoning their quadruple vocal assault to conquer the hills and valleys of their blend of electronically enhanced melodic Swedish metal. Staggering the atmospheric breakdowns between mid-paced metal madness ("Blue Eyed Fiend") while trudging up their best remembrances of Children of Bodom and HIM ("Enclave"), this band clunkily travels from Soilwork to Bullet for My Valentine before spurting out heard it all before riffs and underdeveloped ideas that get lost in the band's constantly shifting styles, making this 11-track rollercoaster ride a bit short on the thrills.
