It’s easy to see how a band with a million and one influences could fail to succeed due to ADD or “too many cooks in the kitchen” syndrome. If the band is The Syncope Threshold, however, all of the ingrediants seem to work. Like (and equally unlike) most rock and metal bands out there, they strike the perfect balance between extremely varied influences. The Syncope Threshold handle all aspects of their sound, from soaring leads to crisp breakdowns, with complete mastery in their song “Exodus.” If you’re a fan of progressive hard rock/metal, intricate vocal lines and guitar work or the band Protest the Hero, then you should definitely check out this song. It will rock your socks off.
