Great Review

Sons Of The Addicted - Fractal World
2008, Phantasma Music

Ridgway, Colorado (pop. 750) is home to Sons Of The Addicted, a ready-for-primetime Modern Rock Act with a distinctive sound and a drive to succeed. Their debut album, Fractal World was released in 2008 and hits all of the right notes for Modern Rock radio. Led by writer/singer/lead guitarist Stosch Dembitsky, Sons Of The Addicted are carving out their own piece of the angst-driven hard rock pie.

Influences of or similarities to bands such as Incubus, Primus, Tool, Joe Satriani, Queensryche and Stone Temple Pilots are apparent through Fractal World, but Dembitsky's creative guitar styling and distinctive voice keep Sons Of The Addicted from falling into a sonic rut. The disc opens with guitar rocker Hold Onto Me, featuring Dembitsky's frantic guitar and vocal style. Lyrically dense, the song is almost a melodic rap tune. State Of The Union sounds like a laid back Queensryche tune, with Dembitsky even getting the same vocal intonation as Geoff Tate.Heroes Of Time hits on an Living Color style guitar riff and builds into an epic story song with its roots in Progressive Rock.

Your New Deal shows off the compositional and guitar-style choices that are somewhat unique to Dembitsky and Sons Of The Addicted. There's almost always something interesting going on in the guitar lines of each song on Fractal World. On this tune in particular Sons Of The Addicted remind me somewhat of the ill-fated collaboration of Les Claypool and Alex Liefson, Victor. Other highlights include Cheaters, Never Again, Grey Matter and Fractal World.

Sons Of The Addicted has a sound that is highly commercial yet musically challenging and unusual. Fractal World is a good start, although perhaps a bit uneven at times. Stosch Dembitsky is an unusual talent who is likely to be a fixture on the Indie music scene for years to come. Fractal World is a strong intro to Sons Of The Addicted. - Phantasma Music

Bio

Sons of the Addicted is a new rock band that draws from four decades of musical landscapes woven together with a unique and quirky twist. The sound is fresh with flashback moments of Zappa, Incubus, Primus, Tool, Satriani, Jean-Luc Ponty and others haunting the memory modes of your brain’s opiate receptors into believing that you’ve heard this music before… but where? Nowhere! That’s because Sons of the Addicted’s melodic songwriting and hypnotic rhythms are distinctly their own and sounds like no other music being heard today. Founded and formed by their freaky and ultra-talented lead guitar player, singer and principle composer Stosch Dembitsky, he is joined by long-time friends Bailey Vince on drums, percussion, lyrics and rap, and Joel Waller on Bass. These three have played together since their early teenage years and have developed a sense of spontaneity with one another that is often spooky and thrilling. Michael Scherr brings his eastern keyboards and vocal harmonies raising the sound ceiling to beyond.
