OK, I've picked up quite a few CDs after reading glowing reviews here at HH(Pyn Siren,Steelhouse Lane,etc..)and now I'm going to hope that others will listen to and agree with me on this one.If you are a fan of Queensryche,Dokken, or the Scorpions,don't walk,RUN,and pick this one up.Gary Grant's vocals are superb,and are very similar to Geoff Tates,while Orth's guitar work brings George Lynch & R. Schenker immediately to mind. Go to: http://www.wyckedsynn.com/audio.htm and download 2 full songs

"Let it Rain" and "If You Said Goodbye" plus a soundclip of "The Savior" to hear for yourselves how good these guys are. One of my favorite releases of 2003,right along with Pyn Siren,and the Darkness.Go get it!

From: M. Allen Date: October 7, 2003 at 18:19
This band is highly overhyped and the Scorpions/Dokken comparisons being made here as well as by other critics are misleading, because while this band is melodic, they mix in elements of prog-rock to their sound. Queensryche is a fair comparison, since the singer does sound like Geoff Tate, but anyone expecting a straight-forward melodic metal album will more disappointed than a nymphomaniac at eunuch convention. Not terrible, but hardly worth raving about...

Hmmm,so others are making the comparison to the Scorpions & Dokken as well....nah,must be nothing to it. Anyway, all I ask, is that if you haven't heard these guys,check out their music at: http://www.wyckedsynn.com/audio.htm and form your own opinion.You may be surprised....

From: M. Allen Date: October 8, 2003 at 0:29
Well, Whiplash, no offense, but just because a majority of people say something is true doesn't automatically make it so. Heck, a decade or so ago, the majority of the world thought grunge-metal was good stuff, but we here at Heavy Harmonies know how wrong they were, right? Anyway, you are correct in that folks should listen to WYCKED SYNN themselves and decide. Me, I still don't hear any Scorpions or Dokken, but hey, that's just my two cents' worth...

From: Dean Date: October 11, 2003 at 15:20
While I love these guys-they are def. more in the power/prog genre. Early Queensryche all the way. Personally I'm not a huge Scorpions fan so thankfully i don't see that influence at all. I'm kind of suprised Dan let these guys on here since he turned down a request for Helloween on here and some of these guys' material is heavier than new Helloween. Cheers

Ok, in hindsight, I'll admit when I submitted this cd, it probably should've been listed as Prog. rock, because it is indeed in the same vein as Queensryche; but some of the songs are very melodic,so it's kinda a crap shoot.Gary Grant's vocals are very similar to Geoff Tate's,so a Quensryche fan may enjoy this release.Ken Orth's guitar solos are VERY reminiscient of George Lynch's work(hence the Dokken comparisons)so I think Dokken/Lynch fans may enjoy this as well.And finally,even though this..

is an American group, there is a very distinct German "flavor" which I think also draws the comparison to Dokken and to the Scorps as well. Again,if you haven't checked 'em out, go download their MP3s at their website,and see what you think. Hey Dean, what do you think of the song "If You Said Goodbye"? Is it just me, or is the guitar riff in that song VERY similar to "Back For More" by Ratt??? BTW, no offense taken M.Allen;your opinion is always a good read!

From: Dean Date: October 11, 2003 at 17:39
Hey Whiplash-if you like both early Queensryche and Dokken-have you listened to D.C. Cooper? His solo album is more Dokken oriented but his Silent Force project is heavier and his stint in Royal Hunt was more Euro Prog. Either way that guy covers everything good in melodic metal. Sorry to get off the subject at hand. I didn't really see the Ratt similarity but I'll have to pull out Back for More again. Everytime i think of that tune-the intro riff gets stuck in my head.

From: Dean Date: October 11, 2003 at 17:43
By the way- i agree with the European tag- but that's just because most of the good bands in prog/power are European and even the good American ones like Kamelot are way bigger in Europe than they could ever be in America.

Hey Dean, I checked out some MP3s from Silent Force,and now have both their CDs on the way; I'm also working on getting the DC Cooper solo album for a decent price now. Great music! Thanks for the suggestion man!

From: Dean Date: December 10, 2003 at 13:47
Hey Whiplash- By the way i think it was you who suggested the Mother Metal website for locating some hard to find stuff. Thanks- i found a ton of cds i was looking for there. About 6 gig worth. Awesome.

From: Brandon Date: December 31, 2003 at 17:41
This is one of the best albums of 2003. I'm good friends with guitarist Ken Orth and actually helped them come up with their name WYCKED SYNN. Ken is an awesome guitarist and a great song writer. This album is very well rounded, with heavy tunes like The Savior and my personal favorite, In My Mind. As well it has the ballads If You Said Goodbye and the amazing Let it Rain and of course if has the rocking tunes like Till the End and Evil Ways. If you want hard hitting melodic rock, this is it.

From: Rycheage Date: February 8, 2004 at 17:50
Finally the U.S. has a genuine contender for the European power metal bands, with an effort perhaps more powerful than many of those. For a debut this is so accomplished, in every facet, that you can't imagine where there is for Wycked Synn to go, except 'up' if there is any justice.

From: Metalfan1 Date: April 8, 2004 at 2:49
WOW!!!!!!! This cd has'nt left my cd player in 3 weeks. Incredible album and I also hear they have a new one coming out this year but I can't find any place to pre-order it yet. GET THIS DISK!!!

From: Brandon Date: April 15, 2004 at 22:04
Metalfan1, It won't be out for a few months.

From: Criss Date: April 19, 2004 at 5:08
Has anyone had trouble with the last three tracks (In My Mind, Unchosen Path, The Savior) being unable to play? I have tried several players that I know work perfectly so it must be the copy I received from ebay. I am bummed because I have heard "In My Mind" is a great track. From the tracks that I heard this band is very cool right down to the 80z spelling of their name. The reason this CD does not sound like a debut is because each guy has like 15-20 years experience.

From: figgy Date: April 19, 2004 at 19:35
wow !!!!!!!!!!!! talk about a kickass band.Gary Grant leads me on a roller coaster ride of emotions and Ken orth just hypnotises with his riffs.The vision cd rocks

From: Rockhead Date: April 26, 2004 at 8:23
I hear George Lynch in the riffing-I don't really hear Queensryche, maybe the vocals are too different. A good set of rock songs with a classic feel and solid production. Definately a throwback to the early 90's (which is no bad thing). The vocals are probably the weakest.I can also hear Blackout era Scorpions as well.

From: MJ (Marla) Date: April 26, 2004 at 10:30
I like the songs.......I like the music.......I can not stand the vox...so yep...Your comparisons with Queenryche and Scorpions is probably right on, I don't like them either. "Let It Rain" has a really cool thunderstorm going on though...high point on the album for me...lol!!!

From: figgy Date: June 2, 2004 at 3:13
these guys are awesome.recently got an autographed cd,and i can't put it down.too bad lineup is changing,heard new stuff is on the way with a different vocalist

From: Brandon Date: March 10, 2005 at 14:54
Gary is Officially back in the band!!!

From: Figgy Date: April 29, 2005 at 22:54
Absolutely awesome to hear about Gary.This cd still posesses me when I put it in my cd player !Anyone know about new stuff they are doing?
