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 that’s ideal for the Canadian sextet, who coalesced through a mutual passion and drive to make music a lifetime job. Merging “clean singing with technical music,” 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,” says Ciccia. The band plan to release their first full-length in 2013.
