Feeling a bit camera shy


mnemonic (ne mon'ik): helping or intended to aid the memory. Mnemonic is a three piece, heavy, alternative rock band. Device is the debut, independent release of this talented trio from Reno, Nevada. It is an emotional and intense work of undeniable potency guided by melodic vocals over heavy guitar driven rock. Mnemonic first took shape in Reno in August of 2001. Predictably, the band didn't quite fit the mold of most others lingering around the region. They quickly gained recognition through energetic and engaging live performances throughout the Northern California and Nevada regions. Influenced by a wide-ranging collection of artists, the band released "Device" in April of 2002. Mnemonic immediately began to establish a reputation through consistent airplay of the single "Spineless" on Reno's alternative rock station KRZQ 100.9. Device was tracked in Sacramento with producer Eric Broyhill (The Deftones, Cake). The album successfully finds that intangible balance between lush beauty and primal heaviness. Lyrically, Mnemonic explores dark, introspective themes of relationships, desperation, and despair. But the group insists its fundamental message is a positive one. "The point of this band is to let people know that they're not alone in dealing with bad feelings or pain. Music is the perfect vehicle for release in a positive manner." says Stoudt, who pens the words. "It's rewarding to have someone identify with something I've gone through, and have the music we create help them through their situation." Live, Mnemonic captures an audience with their energetic stage presence and hold them while transitioning through an intricate set-list of cutting edge original music. "We're very sincere about what we do. We give a 110% every show regardless of how big or small. It is our release, and we take it very seriously." said Stoudt. In a very short period of time Mnemonic has achieved many notable accomplishments. Mnemonic was a showcasing artists at the Eat'm 2002 conference in Las Vegas. The band was used for an episode of NBC's popular sitcom "ED". Their single "Spineless" was retired from the steel rock cage match on 100.9 KRZQ, after defeating major label bands Stonesour, Puddle of Mudd, P.O.D., and Theory of a Deadman. The songs "spineless", "dying", "heredity", and "nothing" were used in the soundtrack to the motion picture "slammed". In addition to 100's of shows big and small, Mnemonic has also shared the stage with Taproot, Adema, Smile Empty Soul, and Powerman 5000. Presently, Mnemonic has finished recording 4 songs with Sylivia Massy-Shivy (Tool, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Sevendust, and Johnny Cash to name a few) and will add those songs to the follow up to "Device", currently in production.
