Melodic metal trio Heretic is an emerging San Diego band to be on the lookout for. I haven’t noticed many show dates for the band, but they have a new EP out called Greetings.

The title track is an upbeat tune with a simple guitar riff and vocal harmonies. "Mincemeat" is a darker track but catchy with subtle but effective production. There seems to be a delay effect on the guitar, which, combined with an explosive middle section, shredding guitar solo, and blood curdling scream at the close, make this the standout song. The last track on the EP, "Cold and Familiar," surprises with a Latin melody.

With their self-produced debut, Heretic shows musical ability by playing tight and clean. You can tell that each musician has put thought into his part, and the songs shine for their efforts.

Go to myspace.com/heretictrio for info and song samples.
