The Making Of
 

“Did anyone order a soul crushing, female fronted metal band?” – Idobi Radio

" It’s honest, heavy and packed full of some of the most amazing elements of metal music infused with some of the most versatile, controlled and distinct vocals in metal music today." -- Diane Webb of Global Metal Mayhem

 “A little bit of keyboard, a thumping drum beat followed by roaring riffs leads into the blazing hot title track. A track that mixes modern metal with operatic style scope. That element comes from the incredible range on singer Ms. Meka. She can go from huge soaring melodies to heavier shouts and screams in an instant. Incredible.” – Games, Brains & A Head-Banging Life

"One of the most promising new names of the Orlando metal scene strikes again with an electrifying EP of modern-day Alternative Rock and Metal. The band’s eccentric frontwoman showcasing an amazing vocal performance... thrives with both her demented growls and her clean vocals...pointing to a bright future ahead for the band’s red-haired shaman " - Gustavo Scuderi of The Headbanging Moose

“Full of energy, this band never fails to strike a chord with everyone sharing the stage from the audience. Meka’s vocals are the antithesis of the ever-present smile on her face that lights up the room. This lovely woman genuinely smiles with her eyes. The entire band is simply memorizing. Meka Nism is one of those bands that must be seen live. Don’t hesitate to meet them either. All of them are engaging, genuine and make you feel like the rock star! ” – Metal Nexus

"The truth of the matter is that Meka Nism created something new. A juicy and crunchy record, out of a genre that many believed deflated some time ago. With a lot of flourish, astute know-how, and a certain swagger that is very difficult to resist." - Rock Music Raider

“While there’s a distinct modern metal feel to Meka Nism, the key to what makes their sound more unique and engaging is the pool of influences that they draw from…they have managed to find their own style within it – one that you will have a hard time forgetting once you hear it. A band that could easily find themselves on the rise as word starts to get around.” – Dead Rhetoric

When it comes round to mixing different music styles to create something it can be a tricky business, but bands like Meka-nism make light work of it, instead they lauded the foundations of metal and rock music with a plethora of different elements including electronic music, opera, Japanese pop, folk, etc etc - basically experimental music. 'The Dance At The End Of The World' serves well as the band's latest release and explodes in a radioactive spectrum of colorful sounds, from the blackness of the evil vocals that drive the red-hot riffs and drumbeats, whilst the icy blue chilling atmosphere serves well for the green fading away on the heart monitor, after all this Floridian four-piece are the more softer and sharper kind than their fellow countrymen Deadstar Assembly, none the less it's a breath of fresh air." - Rhys Stevenson/Global Metal Apocalypse

“After an extended warm up/sound check, in which we were granted audience to her operetta-esque vocals, Meka Nism took stage with seizure inducing strobe lights ablaze to frame the show's darkest metal of the evening. During the first break, she asked the attached video's final question of the audience and was granted a similar response. Later, I asked her if she agreed that the band's sound was reminiscent of “an early System of a Down with a female Serj.” to which she joyously accepted and agreed. Her part of the show contained even more crowd involvement, which acted as the catalyst for, and resulted in, the greatest response of the evening. For the final song, she invited all of the other band members and all of the females in the audience onto the stage, which led to an intense tour-de-force of dark metal finale.”
Orion Christy /Girls Rock, Backbooth

“Next up was Meka Nism. Their sound is defined by crushing metal chords, melodic undertones, and female vocals. The band consists of several extreme influences collected in one band, truly something you’ve never heard before. Vocalist Meka’s voice carries those opera-like notes, and then she turns around and releases some gut-wrenching growls. The band’s image is fun but intimidating, you can see Meka’s bright red dreadlocks from miles away. The crowd response was some of the most positive out of all of the bands that played. This is definitely a band that you should pay attention to and check out if you haven’t!”
Stephanie Jensen - Metal Extravaganza/Mayhem Magazine

“What more can be said about this group of sound artisans lead by the most dramatic, audacious, streak of pure energy you will ever see grace any Central Florida stage. As always, Ms. Meka brought you up, pulled you down, and pummeled your soul with her incredible vocals and dramatic stage presence. This band is an eclectic mix of components that are as amazing to watch as they are to hear. In a little girl’s room chat, we learned that they will soon be on tour in Japan. But, fear not, their new recording should be available to us before they go….(this way we won’t miss them so much here at home while they’re out and about in the big world). Ms. Rose’s favorite moment of the night; being able to get on stage with Meka Nism….priceless” - Rose's Damned Opinion 

"A fresh breath of air in a sea of copycats and formulaic bands. If your one of the people pleading for bands to take the road less traveled and try something different, Meka Nism might just be your cup of tea.." - Mark Kilmer/Beneath the Grid Music
