God, another band that tries to combine heavy guitars with electronic dance music… guess what? It still doesn’t work!

This Dayton, Ohio outfit  uses plenty of chugga chugga riffs coupled to screeching screams, cookie monster vocals and a good deal of clean vocals (in the choruses of course… where else?) and couples it to synths and beats. This results in songs that are all over the place and I can just see people at shows scratching their heads when The Paramedic switches from a mosh-inducing breakdown to a clean-sung chorus with sweeping synth sounds in the blink of an eye. Feel free to skip this one!
