When the Canadian 6 piece band Mandroid Echostar write songs, they don´t look at what´s selling on the charts. These guys blend whatever inspiration comes in mind, all from 80´s rock to progressive rock and even modern metal. They´re technical, heavy, melodic and quite groovy.
Think Nothing More meets Extreme but also traces of Fair To Midland and Dream Theater, the Rich Ward-like riffs are awesome and also the cream of the crop here. Put on your headphones and enjoy some classy progmetal til your ears bleed, and if you want more - Mandroid Echostar released a self titled album in 2012.
I´m excited as a kid on christmas eve.
