Sonic X / Press

“Fall From Grace is one of the rare recordings that bridges the gap between the glory days of 80s hard rock and the modern sound that is prevalent on Active Rock radio today. Powerful, driving rhythms, brilliant guitar work goes beyond pure shredding, Wearing his emotions on his sleeve, Troy channels anguish and rage into his impassioned delivery as he breathes life into lyrics that clearly hit close to home.Lawrence Falcomer’s brilliant guitar work goes beyond pure shredding (although there is plenty of it tastefully displayed throughout the EP).Powerful, driving rhythms (courtesy of bassist, Joseph Cumbo and drummer, Joey Greco)”

“Simply put -- this is a great CD. Sonic X's second CD, Thirteen, is a great melodic hard-rock CD that builds on the sounds of the late-80s and early 90s but still sounds fresh and relevant today. A lot of reviewers have compared this disc to Bon Jovi and, while I can hear the basis for the comparison, I don't think it accurately describes the band's sound. Imagine a harder-edged Bon Jovi (without the keyboards), pre-1988 Whitesnake, the harder side of White Lion (and guitarist Lawrence Falcomer can hold his own against Vito Bratta), or the John Corabi fronted version of Motley Crue and you should get a sense of what this band sounds like. The majority of the tracks on this CD could and should get frequent airplay on the rock radio stations around the country. Guitarist Lawrence Falcomer also plays some incredible leads throughout this disc. It is probably inappropriate to compare Falcomer's guitar work to Zakk Wylde's work on the latest Ozzy CD(still thinking about my recent review”

“Sometimes an album needs several spins until it gets to you, until you get a grasp of what a band wants to say & accomplish with their craftsmanship in tunes. One of these particular albums is delivered by Chavis recording artists Sonic X, a band that can count Final Frontier’s Lawrence Falcomer as one of their members. All members from this Toronto, Canada based band are masters at the art of playing their respective instruments, including the singer. As previously mentioned, it took me a couple of spins to realize that the boys have found some common ground between Hardline, late Bon Jovi, Harem Scarem & a dash of Union. In simple words: 80’s melodic hardrock with an updated sound. Great record all-over with random highlights ‘Seeds Of Thunder’, ‘If Only’ & ‘Carried Away’ & the truly glorious ‘Disgrace’. My favorites could be totally different tomorrow, though… According to the bio this is the band’s sec”

“Check out all the songs on the Jukebox or visit www.reverbnation.com/sonicx but you are going to want to buy this one. Also watch for their next release due out this fall. Sonic X is 100% ass kickin, aggressive, in your face melodic hard rock & No punches pulled, no bubble gum, no glam and no wimps!! Sonic X is Rock N Roll!!! Reviewed by Kathy ”

“Sonic X hits hard with THIRTEEN, mixing Hard Rock from the ’80s with today’s musical trends. Great musicianship from all the members and a strong vocal performance from Adam Troy, who shows he can pull off some different styles. The band performs well, the songs are well written, and there is a catchiness to the music that makes the listener pay attention. Lawrence Falcomer’s guitarwork really hits the mark showing that bands today should actually PLAY their instrument rather than bang away at it. Favorite songs here: ‘Crawl’, ‘Carried Away’, ‘Shine’, ‘Seeds Of Thunder’ and ’Breathe’. All in all, a solid album by a band to watch closely…..THIRTEEN is a great listen. ”
