Your work comes in as a peer to the other bands. The great use of guitar effects, The combo of vulnerability and assured tones of the vocals is powerful. -Taxi.com

I trace this type of melodic hard guitar sound back to CREAM's studio work in 66-68, and then picked up by MASTERS OF REALITY and finally to QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, and now, you guys have a place in the evolution of that sound. The songs are both, quirky, and yet immediately relatable. The hooks are all strong, and the laconic, understated vocal approach is an appealing combination. The band plays well, with good energy, accuracy and imagination. Good work all around, boys. - Taxi.com

Bio

Vancouver BC locals are set to release their second EP 'Love Hate Machine' April 2008. The fruition of this powerhouse 4-piece unfolds on the stage after two years of fine tuning their own style. Dozens of demos, a previously released EP in December 2006, and dozens of showcases around Vancouver have led to them to an accomplished two years together. 'Love Hate Machine' contains 5 original tracks showcasing their true talent at etching their skills into the evolution of a classic yet original sound.

Cosmedic is an independant, Vancouver based 4-piece. The backgrounds of these seasoned musicians include a long list of recordings, radio & TV play, and 100’s of shows between them. Its no wonder ears perk when their unique flavour or rock catches them.

Fronted by Chris Denhartog's "laconic understated" vocal stylings , Chris moved to Vancouver from San Bernardino, California, where he developed his writing style with Allan Levy, original member of Hollywood Records '40 Foot Echo'. In Vancouver, he wrote with Mark Radloff and Blaine Braun, who later went on to form the successful act 'Tourist'. After two years honing his skills with Mark and Blaine, Chris left to start his own project. He found Brett Drury; the accomplished drummer of Vancouver's accomplished 'Girl Nobody'. Guitarist James Jeffrey, of Toronto had just moved to Vancouver to work with Sony/Daylight artist 'Rider Jones', when his dissonant, exotic riffs immediately caught the attention of Chris. After leaving his Toronto based band 'Rye' with Moist's Jeff Pearce, Robert Shaw made his way back to Vancouver to complete the band.

The albums first single, a seductive hit “Without Eyes,” hits you with its freaky guitar lines, memorable choruses, and Cosmedic's eccentric sexy grooves; a good example of what to expect from 'Love Hate Machine'. From there, they explore an agressive, yet pensive flavour of rock, summed up tastefully in their title track 'Love Hate Machine'. Their second EP draws a full circle around their dynamic, groove oriented style. In their short time together, Cosmedic has already achieved radio play, TV show placement, and a publishing deal through SWV Enterprises in Los Angeles, CA.

“Their sound comes to life with their powerful and passionate live shows. This latest release is a true demonstration of their talent and unique sound.” -Vandala Concepts. Comedic plans to head out on the road, hitting shows and festivals this summer throughout Western Canada.
