Notes to the Editor:

 

About Cassandra Syndrome: Hailing from Maryland, Cassandra Syndrome is a strikingly unique act comprised of Irene Jericho on vocals, Chris Kackley on lead guitar, Jen Tonon on rhythm guitar, Joe Cariola on bass and Jay Jericho on percussion. This passionate, engaging group blends elements of metal and opera to scathingly good effect. The band is currently touring to support their album ‘Of Patriots and Tyrants.’ Praised by reviewers around the globe for their dramatic, energetic music and socially conscious lyrics, Cassandra Syndrome remains a metal-based call to arms.
www.cassandrasyndrome.com

 

About White Shadow: White Shadow's particular brand of industrial rock cannot be easily likened to the work of others in their genre. Because of this, they easily fit alongside artists in other genres such as metal, dance, alternative, and the avante garde. Formed in 2006, the group has undergone many changes as they continually polish and refine their sound. The band mixes the realms of theatrical vocals and soundscapes of futurepop/goth with blistering guitars of metal, all while combining it with eccentric, danceable synth textures and subconcious bass grooves. With a stage performance infamous for its energy and theatrics, White Shadow is not a band to miss.

About Dharmata 101: Dharmata 101 has gone through myriad stylistic & organizational changes since its inception back in 1997 by frontman/composer JSun Bruner. What began as deeply programmed electronic rock music permutated into hard electro & synthpop through the years, before coming back to its synth rock roots. Currently, D101 is performing as an exciting, not-to-be-missed theatric one-man act live supporting the intensely spiritual rock opera, "The Five Shackles" (due to be released in late 2010 on Radio-Active-Music)
http://www.myspace.com/dharmata101

About Machines of Living Death: Hailing from Baltimore, Machines Of Living Death creates “cybercore,” a fusion of industrial and extreme metal with the grooves of drum and bass. Many will compare them with phrases like “Skinny Puppy meets Slayer” or “Fear Factory meets Orgy”, but listening to them unmasks a sound that is much more complex, and much more cohesive then the typical attempts to merge metal, industrial, and electronica. M.O.L.D. maintains enough headbanging accuracy, synth-etic prowess, and bone-crushing stompability to satisfy the most jaded rivethead to the death and black metal fan. http://www.machinesoflivingdeath.com

Cassandra Syndrome in No Apologies Magazine [19 Aug 2010|03:03pm]

irenejericho
[ mood | calm ]

So this one's from quite a while back, but I finally got my copy today :)  No Apologies magazine sent a reporter and photographer to our show with The Dreamscapes Project back in February as part of the Twelve Days Project.  The bulk of the article talks (quite rightly) about TDP and the Project.  Here's an excerpt that specifically talks about CS:

 "Though both bands used the same lyrics and similar melodies, the two versions were unmistakably unique.  The Dreamscapes Project took a "folk-core" approach to the song, with soothing melodies dancing from a tin whistle, cello, and violin, whereas Cassandra Syndrome performed it as operatic metal.

 The bands may seem like odd partners, but Irene Jericho, lead singer of Cassandra Syndrome, says that their excited and expressive personalities are what brought them together when they met years ago.  "We first shared the stage together at a festival and both their band and our band have a tendency to engage in a lot of banter on stage and to be kind of silly, and so I think there was an immediate sort of like 'Oh!  You're as weird as we are; let's be friends."

 Though Cassandra Syndrome's members are lighthearted on stage, their music is much deeper and more serious than is typical for their genre.  The heart of their music lies in the ancient myth from which the band gets its name.  Jericho explains, "Basically Cassandra was the famed seeress of Troy, and she was cursed to see the future but no one would believe her, mainly just cause Apollo was pissed off at her family.  'Cassandra Syndrome' means that you have these dark visions of the future but no one will believe you, and our music is sociopolitical and a lot of it is kind of alarmist in tone.  We try to draw attention to different issues that we cover: racism, and the environment; we cover politics, we cover the gap between the rich and poor in third world countries, so we tend to focus on that."

 Cassandra Syndrome's set was intense and powerful."

 

I don't think I realized how much I use run-on sentences when I speak.  LOL

 Anyway, hope you enjoyed it :)

 ~Irene

Hey all!  Here's a recording of 'Shackles' from the Masquerade Ball last night. Please forgive the sound quality--it was just my little point-and-click digital camera.
