“The vocals are strong; the singer really knows what he can do with his voice and gives it all. The guitar riffs are great; each song has a core melody that carries throughout the song. The solo in “Masks” is definitely one to listen to. The drums maintain a steady beat that unconsciously makes you want to move your body to the rhythm. Memory Of A Melody is a talented band that I recommend to anyone with a love for music.”
"They say everything is bigger in Texas. That bodes well for Memory of a Melody because they’ve got what it takes to be the next big thing on the modern hard rock/metal scene. But that’s not just because they call Texas home. No, MOAM earn the right to be given a shot at the big time based solely on the merits of their music, a slab of sonic muscularity that straddles the gossamer-thin line separating hard rock from metal."
“After the FRS article on Memory of a Melody, we were able to ask front-man, Mario Galdos, a few questions via email to get a deeper insight into what is really happening in San Antonio! Take a look below: [FRS] When asked about your band, how do you describe your music? Mario: Heavy, melodic guitars and bass with pounding, energetic drums and catchy vocals. [FRS] Why the name Memory of a Melody? Mario: We feel that the music we offer is something that sticks with you, ingrained in your mind. ”
“ Combining formulas of various alternative and radio-friendly genres/artists into short songs with bite, force and grit has never been done so successfully. Memory Of A Melody is cited to be the missing link between the underground and the mainstream, and that is indeed true for their sound, because on the scale of catchy, Things That Make You Scream is on the guilty pleasure level, and yet it doesn't lack quality at all.”
“If you´re in a band that has decided to head out on the highway of active rock, you better be prepared with a load of strong material and also lots of attitude. Otherwise, it´s pretty easy to get lost in the modern rock jungle. The San Antonio based rock/metal band Memory of a Melody knows the importance of these things and has delivered a really impressive debut album in "Things that make you scream". The production sounds expensive and the songs are massive, at times they remind of a mix between Nickelback and Iron Maiden, while in other moments MOAM bring thoughts to Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace. Lead singer Mario Galdos is a pro at both clean vocals and screamo, we´re dealing with real hard rock here if you just listen to tracks like "Break away" and "Till death do us part" or if you´re a sucker for radio ready modern rock, you will get your share with songs like "Things that make you scream" and "Pieces". Highly recommendable! ”
