"The brainchild of Meridian, Mississippi's Michael S., this instrumental rocker seethes with a growling guitar attack backed by post industrial rhythms. You feel the influences of Ministry and Ramstein, kissed with guitar work that can range from punked up squawk in "Just Don't Give a Damn" to hair metal shred in "Runnin' Amok." With fresh song writing approaches, Michael proves you don't have to be an arpeggio master to create intense rock guitar instrumentals."

Five reviews of my work:
"'Howl At Tha Moon' sounds like a Viking Throwdown. Despite no melody, this track manages to be entertaining on sheer energy and heart. This could be the new Indian music, transcendental and good for dancing or meditating while you're ripped out of your brains. The tribal rage will never die. Your playing is all heart and embodies the spirit fully. The style is rendered without the need for fantastic solos or parts. If there were some awesome breaks or beats, differing instruments or passages of different music, there would be more opportunity for glory. But it rocks as is. This is the most straightforward music I've encountered in this genre; call it 'Wordless Rock Groove'."

"A good rhythm and beat is crucial to a song and is a fundamental to lovemaking. So when my head went to bobbing to this cd my girl said it ranked pretty high on the richter scale. It RAWKED, BROTHER!! In fact I think I knocked something loose. Oh wait...There was already something not right about my head! Too much hairspray and 80's Rock will do that to you, I guess. But now about Seismic Anamoly. I have before me 2 separate CD's and one common fact; both are hard to classify. At first I think Heavy Metal, and then I think Dance music.....HUH, you say?! Well, I can see it being both really. But to top it off, it's Instrumental Rock. S.A. has a style very much his own that's technically Metal with nice volume and velocity. I can see myself listening to this music on a long drive when I want to do some thinking without hearing somebody screaming over the music. S.A. has done very well for himself in the way of promotions. I have seen numerous websites that feature his music and several that have him ranked high on their list. He now ranks high on mine. Check it out for yourself."
