Beta State is a new very talented band with the two members, Ryan Hernandez and Adrian Robison from Strata. Together with Justin Kastner and Matt McDonald they’re forming a real strong quartet, whose debut "Stars" is a must if you like emotional modern rock ala Jimmy Eat World. One could also compare them with a U2 and 30 Seconds To Mars influenced Dredge with great melodies but with an odd little twist.
If you read their biography so you can find that they were looking at one year after a singer before finding Matt. But they must be very happy that they were so accurate since he is truly an awesome singer. Like his sensitive yet strong voice that fits superbly into their atmospheric modern rock and that takes them to a new level.
Just listen to the fantastic "Stars," "Right Here With You" and "I Will Remember You" and you will understand what I mean. This is a very competent album that must have a proper release if there is logic in the music industry. Ok, there’s no logic at all as you knows, but Beta State is too good not to get signed!
