"Most sounds circulating the modern rock airwaves these days are one-dimensional at best. Not with Element57. Plenty of bands are capable of writing memorable riffs, but this one infuses their thunder with colorful melodies, atypical instrumentation, and form that goes beyond the predictable verse-chorus. With such a broad range of influences, this quintet has produced a very diverse album that’s surely worth a listen."- OURSTAGE***

A 4-piece powerhouse that has been compared to the Foo Fighters and Audio Slave. “…The band overflows with energy and still meticulously attends to melody and form. Guitar and sax rise and fall…a waterfall of sound and a pounding groove…all fed by dynamic vocals which conjure up both Peter Gabriel and Chris Cornell.” Their 2008 release, Ripcord was picked up by Portland mainstream stations KUFO101.1FM and KNRK94.7FM, 300 college & commercial radio stations nationwide and charted on over 40 CMJ reporting stations.
