Album Review

Since heavy metal is often thought of as the chief musical choice of teenage rock fans, it would only seem natural that there would be bands comprised of members still in or barely out of their teenage years. Case in point, Sonic Syndicate, as several members of the Swedish sextet had not yet passed the "20-year-old mark" when their debut full-length, Eden Fire, appeared in late 2005.

That said, it is impressive that a band possessing such young members could easily match up to the majority of the competition of the early 21st century metal world.
