Formed in 2010 around the talents of vocalist Aaron Nordstrom (formerly a guitarist with Otep), drummer Steele Medina, guitarists Rich Juzwick and Mike Salerno, and bass player Alessandro Paveri, the Los Angeles-based mainstream metal quintet Gemini Syndrome spent their formative days opening for bands like Nonpoint and Murderdolls on the Sunset Strip.
As their reputation within the L.A. hard rock scene grew, so did their audience, and soon after the release of their 2011 debut EP, the band inked a major-label deal with Warner Bros. with plans for a debut long-player. The resulting Lux, which has drawn comparisons to bands like Disturbed, Stone Sour, and System of a Down, was released in 2013. Following a switch to Sony-affiliated Another Century Records, they began working with Canadian father-and-son duo Kevin and Kane Churko to produce their follow-up, Memento Mori, which was released in August 2016. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
