Check Out: The Mandroid Echostar EP
Mandroid Echostar "probably spend more time in a room together than most grown men should," according to vocalist Michael Ciccia, but thatâ€™s ideal for the Canadian sextet, who coalesced through a mutual passion and drive to make music a lifetime job. Merging â€śclean singing with technical music,â€ť they seek to exploit the melodic potential of a three-guitar band. "Essentially, our musical ideal is to bring aspects of melody, technicality, orchestration and pop music fundamentals into the wonderful melting pot that is metal,â€ť says Ciccia. The band plan to release their first full-length in 2013.
