Synopsis

Amazon.com
More than just a straight nu-metal collection, Sonic Jihad is a journey, lyrically and musically, through human emotions. The luscious, slo-mo cinematic strains of "Casualty," with its dragging beats and Bond-esque strings, is an homage to longing. The Phil Spector-inspired production of "You and Your Friend" and the ultra hi-tech aching of the Cure's "Love Song" encapsulate love and obsession. And the concoction of drum & bass, cheesy lounge elements, and demonic guitars on "Somebody Hates You" makes a convincing stab at--not surprisingly--hate. And their distressed and blissfully aching cover of the Smiths' "How Soon Is Now" is nothing short of staggering. With femme fatale Tobey Torres vocals in the fore and the entire group creating drama and attitude, Sonic Jihad is the triumph of passion over technology. --Dan Gennoe

CD Reviews

The Female Marilyn Manson
James E. Mullen III | North Carolina | 08/23/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"As the title states, this group is the epitome of what I think Marilyn Manson would sound like if he had been born a woman. I love this group in almost every aspect there is to love in a song. The music is definitely catered away from people that see no need to find the end-point on their volume knobs. Listened to quietly, or even, simply, not loudly, makes these tracks sound no better than a techno/goth/Avril Lavigne.

I am a person who has a massive appreciation for music. I have, on more than one occasion, come to blows with good friends because they insisted on trying to talk during "Freebird," and as such, I am generally not a fan of simulated instruments or techno, but this CD will open your eyes to a very coveted genre (female techno-goth rock).

If you don't believe me, turn up the volume on your computer, lean in close and stream "Lovesong" off of Amazon, or somewhere, and you have my promise that the first 10 seconds of the song will have you sold.

I recommend this highly to anyone who likes Marilyn Manson, female vocalists and the Matrix soundtrack."
