Review by Chris Fox
With a sound the resembles a mix of modern hard rock and the classic days of heavy metal with just a touch of bluesy funk, The Motherhive Syndicate delivers headbanging drive and emotion for 58 minutes on their album, “Negative Spaces.” Soaring vocals with just enough grit, and a guitar that rides that fine line between rhythm and shred are the carrying sounds of this album. Turning down the treble, reveals the solid percussion and groovy bass lines that really drive this music. Clearly drawing on influences from all over the musical world, these guys are a Madison band to be watched.
