Still simmering, but almost ready to boil, is the Phoenix, AZ, based Six Sided Halo, who I’ll predict will have taken the national market by storm come this time next year. The unique hard rock quartet only has this 5-song E.P. out at this time, along with a new single (a cover of the Cranberries song “Zombie”).

What immediately struck me about this E.P. is the interesting instrumentation and creative use of effects, which sets them apart from most other melodic metal bands on the radio today. A song like “Fugitive From Reality” can rock really hard, but still keep the listener engaged and at attention. All five of these songs are radio-friendly yet outside of the box in terms of their arrangements.

One example could be “Through The Divine” with it’s serpentine rhythms establishing an individual identity, much in the way early Tool did. Singer Dustin “D.C.” Carrison has the chops to hold his own aside iconic front men like Dave Grohl or Shinedown’s Brent Smith.

“Apathy” and “Breakthrough” are perhaps the most emo tracks, with the type of appeal that both hardened rocksters and their girlfriends might appreciate - a sing along chorus and HUGE production. “Apathy” also features ripping lead guitar runs care of founder Jay Avarice, that seamlessly segues into a more mellow, reflective bridge. Label A & R dudes and radio programmers: take note!
