Meka Nism / Press

"Orlando Weekly Best of 2013 has ranked Meka Nism the #3 Metal Band in Orlando,"- Orlando Weekly 2013

"When it comes round to mixing different music styles to create something it can be a tricky business, but bands like Meka-nism make light work of it, instead they lauded the foundations of metal and rock music with a plethora of different elements including electronic music, opera, Japanese pop, folk, etc etc - basically experimental music. 'The Dance At The End Of The World' serves well as the band's latest release and explodes in a radioactive spectrum of colorful sounds, from the blackness of the evil vocals that drive the red-hot riffs and drumbeats, whilst the icy blue chilling atmosphere serves well for the green fading away on the heart monitor, after all this Floridian four-piece are the more softer and sharper kind than their fellow countrymen Deadstar Assembly, none the less it's a breath of fresh air." ​

"Meka Nism's newest EP is an example of what happens when artists come together and create something unique and engaging. The four track release is a showcase of the bands ability to take you somewhere you've never been. That's what The Dance At The End Of The World is, an artistic journey. If you fancy your music more on the side of different and daring then you will probably find plenty to like here. The EP starts out heavy with the track "Tyranny Reigns" and goes through a range of different styles before reaching its finale with the song "Rise". The vocals are brilliantly done and possibly showcase everything that can be accomplished with a set of vocal chords. From screams to growls to songs with clean vocals, Meka delivers mightily. I really enjoyed this release and think that those with open minds will too. While maybe not for everyone, Meka Nism has created a journey worth taking. An original piece of art that deserves to be heard. Give it a listen and let it take you somewhere

“After an extended warm up/sound check, in which we were granted audience to her operetta-esque vocals, Meka Nism took stage with seizure inducing strobe lights ablaze to frame the show's darkest metal of the evening. During the first break, she asked the attached video's final question of the audience and was granted a similar response. Later, I asked her if she agreed that the band's sound was reminiscent of “an early System of a Down with a female Serj.” to which she joyously accepted and agreed. Her part of the show contained even more crowd involvement, which acted as the catalyst for, and resulted in, the greatest response of the evening. For the final song, she invited all of the other band members and all of the females in the audience onto the stage, which led to an intense tour-de-force of dark metal finale.”

“Next up was Meka Nism. Their sound is defined by crushing metal chords, melodic undertones, and female vocals. The band consists of several extreme influences collected in one band, truly something you’ve never heard before. Vocalist Meka’s voice carries those opera-like notes, and then she turns around and releases some gut-wrenching growls. The band’s image is fun but intimidating, you can see Meka’s bright red dreadlocks from miles away. The crowd response was some of the most positive out of all of the bands that played. This is definitely a band that you should pay attention to and check out if you haven’t!”

“What more can be said about this group of sound artisans lead by the most dramatic, audacious, streak of pure energy you will ever see grace any Central Florida stage. As always, Ms. Meka brought you up, pulled you down, and pummeled your soul with her incredible vocals and dramatic stage presence. This band is an eclectic mix of components that are as amazing to watch as they are to hear. In a little girl’s room chat, we learned that they will soon be on tour in Japan. But, fear not, their new recording should be available to us before they go….(this way we won’t miss them so much here at home while they’re out and about in the big world). Ms. Rose’s favorite moment of the night; being able to get on stage with Meka Nism….priceless”

"A fresh breath of air in a sea of copycats and formulaic bands. If your one of the people pleading for bands to take the road less traveled and try something different, Meka Nism might just be your cup of tea.."
