"SiOP on Garage Band"

Phoenix, Arizona--March 31, 2005-- Something very rare is blossoming in the desert. Five talented musicians are coming together as one true sound. SiOP delivers a punch that catches the listener off guard. Their music portrays a positive message to the world. This is a collaboration of tireless artists who own the patent on work ethic.

SiOP breaks down the constraints of one specific genre. They are intense, heavy and they bring their art to the people. In a sense, their music mirrors the attitudes of each member of the SiOP family. This is an extremely diverse alliance of artists. SiOP offers a sense of unity that some bands find difficult to ascertain.

Conceived in 1999 and enjoying a tremendous amount of regional success the band understands that the sky is the limit. SiOP is enjoying the fruits of their tireless promotion efforts by touring throughout Arizona, California and New Mexico. Regionally SiOP draws particularly well packing venues with 1500 fans.

SiOP is comfortable with the national spotlight performing with Papa Roach, Taproot, Breaking Benjamin, Thornley, Static-X, Lo-Pro, Soulfly, Illnino, Slaves On Dope, Dope, Motograter, Twisted Method, Kicking Harold and Gilby Clarke. SiOP has also played the 5100 Nokia Core Tour Extreme Sports Festival. The band will keep a national focus by performing dates for Luckyman Productions based on the West Coast.

SiOP's debut single, "Beside Myself," receives numerous spins on Active Radio Play lists including KHST in Pittsburgh, KS, KXGE in Dubuque, IA, KZRC in Bay City, TX, WQZK in Keyser, WV, KARZ in Marshall, TX and 92.9 KRWN in Farmington, NM. In addition, their single, �The Reason� is consistently picking up several spins. Recently SiOP battled and defeated both Linkin Park and Revis on Z-98 in Sioux City, IA. SiOP expects to see many more promising stations to follow in the near future.

Additional singles, "Glass House" and "Two Faced," receive numerous spins on specialty radio including 98 KUPD's Red Radio Underground in AZ, KXTE X-Treme in Las Vegas, NV, 93 KTCL in Colorado, WBER in Penfield, NY, WKGB in Dunmore, PA, WAITT in Omaha, NE, WXSR in Tallahassee, FL, WARQ in Columbia, SC and 104.6 in Germany to name a few.

Do yourself a favor and check this group of musicians out. Go see them live. Go buy their CD. And experience what has left many picking their jaw off the floor.

"No other heavy progressive style comes close to their ability to rock you and mesmerize you at the same time."

"SiOP on Garage Band"

PRO!!! PRO!!! PRO!!! The use of your supa effects with the general melody meshed perfectly! The driving beat behind you song makes it hard to believe what I'm listening to. You sound similar to Crossbreed but not quite. Performance is awesome. Rap works well but I'm not a fan of it. Song is surged with force. Overall A- Breakdown is fantastic!!!! Production and tone is without words.

"SiOP on"

SiOP is the real deal! They are a very unique-sounding band that hails from Phoenix, Arizona. With the recent release of their new CD Abnormality, they only continue to rock out hard and garner new and loyal fans form all around the world. With frontman Craig Daley’s original singing voice, Scott Ertelt’s and Stitch’s amazing ability to play the guitar, Bekie Gantt’s stellar timing on the drums, and James Moncol’s steady bass playing, this five piece band makes up the perfect combination for some great music.

The first track on the CD is an intro titled, “Intro” which leads up and into the first song “Save Yourself.” The first thing I have to point out with this song is Bekie’s unique drum beat. Take the time to listen to it and you will be surprised at how little other drummers would use a beat like this. The guitar and bass are nothing too special in this track (not to knock the song at all), but I feel that the drums are far more important for this tune.

My favourite track on the CD is number eight, “Gift.” I personally love this song because it just gives me a warm feeling inside. The song is about a member of the band’s daughter and how he watches her growing up, asking for God to always take care of her even if he isn’t able to himself. I love to see a religious band who tries to bring some form of God into their music (without preaching about it!). Furthermore, even if the lyrics are not something you can or want to relate to, the music makes up for it. Although a great tune, I can’t help but feel that it lacks a certain something.

The last song on the CD is titled “Voices.” It’s only the 11th track on the album, but the last track is only an outro which literally tells you that, “The CD is over and to leave.” “Voices” is probably the heaviest song on the album in terms of the instrumentals and with it they finally show you what they are capable of with their instruments. I love to hear a nice-sounding track that vocalists, drummers, bassists, and guitarists can all listen to and be pleased with what they hear.

Overall, I loved SiOP’s newest record. Every member of the band is talented at what they do, even if they don’t show it at all the time. I feel that this is a great band for most hard rock fans, especially if you like bands such as: Linkin Park, Papa Roach, System of a Down, or Sevendust. I would have to give SiOP’s Abnormality a 8.1/10 for they have a fantastic foundation with which to work. Good work boys and girl… keep it coming! - Brad Hoath

Displaying unique vocals with in your face lyrics, raging guitars and a pumping bass complimented by a strong, solid with a groove style back beat. "No other heavy progressive style comes close to their ability to rock you and mesmerize you at the same time." John Foxworthy Garage Radio
