"Inside Connection Review"

Sonamulate are an alternative metal band from Australia. They have a very clean, professional sound which distinguishes them from most of the screaming metal that has been coming out lately. However, that doesn�t mean they aren�t as annoyingly poppy as say Nickelback or Creed.

The three songs on their Sonicbids EPK, �Signed My Life Away,� �Sonamulate� and �One Way Ticket� are taken from what their bio describes as an upcoming 5 song EP. There was no other website other than their EPK so it is unknown whether that EP has come out as of this writing.

�One Way Ticket� was my least favorite track as it tries to do the rap-metal fusion that is very hit and miss even when done well. The singing bits are great, but I probably just couldn�t get over the tought of Australian rap.

However, �Signed My Life Away� and �Sonamulate� (which is a variation on the term for sleep walking) more than make up for it. They are easily radio friendly, listenable and extremely well produced. While not overly aggressive metal, they should appeal to the more thinking man�s alt metal crowd. Definitely worth checking out.
