SONIC X picture
From the Great White North of Toronto, Ontario comes Sonic X, a band that plays well crafted melodic hard rock music in the same vein as bands like Skid Row. The origins of Sonic X began in high school where the rhythm section of Joseph Cumbo (bass) and Michael Marquez (drums) quickly befriended each other and joined forces in a local cover band called Aftermath. Guitarist Lawrence Falcomer was soon recruited but the group soon fell into limbo when Falcomer headed south to Los Angeles to study at the Guitar Institute of Technology. Upon the guitarist's return to Toronto the trio hooked-up once again with a new vocalist and renamed themselves L.A. The final piece of the Sonic X puzzle appeared when Triumph's Gil Moore encouraged Cumbo to go to Florida and check out Rage Of Angels singer Adam Troy. After viewing Troy onstage Cumbo knew he was read more...

Another attempt to dig up the hard rock grave apparently was a fruitful effort. Z records found a long lost valuable treasure which had been buried for 20 years ago. A set of demo recorded by a Canadian rock quartet was lifted and cleansed before they released it for public consumption in 2004. Sonic X played a mudkicker, in-your-face rock n roll, like an illegal intercourse of Skid Row and Whitesnake.

From the very first, "News For You", Troy madly scream the lyrics accompanied with Falcomer's blazing riffs, a promising start indeed. He sounded like a gentle blend of Sebastian Bach and Sweet F.A's Steven David DeLong, gritty but gorgeous. "City of Sin" shot a gigantic rhythm to the sky before flying back with a ground-stampeding solo. I can feel a spine-chilling melody in "Two Sides To Every Story", a bit of Zeppelin's touch but the 80s glam weight is still heavy. "Lonely Heart" and "Obsession" both possessed a commercial potential to become a breaking hits if these were aired in the 80s. "Seasons Change" is an unsappy heartmelting power ballad with a clever acoustic opener before richly poured with an incredible solo passage and moving melodies. The last two tracks might be less-interesting for me but they still got their own charming strength.

Sonic X is a surprise catch, I remember blind-purchasing this several years ago and got hooked with their real hard rock outfit without compromising their premises with any pop influence. The production department is a low point as it's probably very hard to upgrade the sound quality from an old dusty tape, but I'm glad that they have been found, a hidden gem of the history you need to check out.
