    It's hard to maintain mystique in 2012.

    That wonderful elusive darkness shrouding classic bands seems almost impossible to conjure with the flurry of tweets, Facebook "likes", Tumblr posts, and other digital necessities required to "break" a young act.

    However, it still exists within Gemini Syndrome.

    The Los Angeles quintet remains the city's most intriguing, infectious, and inimitable rock outfit since Korn and Tool first emerged from Southern California's underbelly. Merging guttural guitars, intricate rhythm patterns, and entrancing vocals, Gemini Syndrome strikes the perfect balance between heavy and hypnotic. There's taut instrumental proficiency from guitarists Rich Juzwick and Mike Salerno, while the tandem attack of Allesandro Paveri's bass and Brian Steele Medina's drums proves utterly gripping. At the center of this swirling storm, singer Aaron Nordstrom delivers hauntingly gorgeous words that's instantly transfix.

    Sneak Peek: During one of the group's standout cuts "Basement", Nordstrom intensely bids, "Send me to the angels and tell God I said goodbye" and "You get fucked up just to get by" as riffs segue from pummeling to a faint acoustic hum. Then, there's "Left Out", where violent grooves subside into another heavenly refrain.

    At the moment, the band is putting the finishing touches on their forthcoming debut full-length for Warner Bros. Records with producer Kevin Churko [Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment], and you can keep up with them in the studio in the videos below.

    However, all bets are off when this album drops as Gemini Syndrome have what it takes to become the next band the world collectively worships—while preserving the mystery of course!
