This was my first time being able to catch Gemini Syndrome on tour and I couldn’t be happier that I was finally able to make it. I was pretty excited and unsure of what to expect. The vocals on the studio recordings are phenomenal, and I was looking forward to seeing how the live performance compared to the album, and rarely have I seen a band pull off such a spot on performance.

Gemini Syndrome bring an entirely new level of aggression and intensity to hard rock that has sadly been lacking in the genre. Fronted by one of the most diverse and well-rounded front men I’ve had the privilege of witnessing, with seamless transitions in a wide array of vocal styles.

The overall sound of Gemini Syndrome is that of a band that knows what they want their sound to be and how to stay true to the music they want to create. There’s nothing more blatantly off-putting than a heavy band trying to play ballads or a radio-rock band trying to put out a tech-death track, but Gemini Syndrome have perfected the craft of blending crushing riffs with soaring melodies and just the right amount of aggression before breaking into a catchy chorus.

The highlight of the night for me, and seemingly every other screaming fan in the crowd, was the performance of Stardust. A better song couldn’t have been chosen to end the amazing night of such a wide range of music from all the bands that performed. Gemini Syndrome is not a band that you want to miss. Catch them on tour with Avatar and Huntress. For tour dates go to geminisyndrome.com.
