What some people are saying about M3;
      'HEAVY-META' What IS M3 anyway?
      It's "Post-Contemporary Semi-Non-Retro-Futurist Heavy-MetaLatin-Celtic- FunkEgyptoReggae-Folky NeoJazzic Pop" -or so they say...
      ' M-3 (sic) describes their sound as 'Brave new music on frightened old instruments " -When I pointed out that some of their gear looks quite new they hasten to add that 'Some of the music dates back to 1988 or earlier, so it's also some Frightening old music on brave new instruments'. Drummer Mag is rumoured to wear a special suit in case of spontaneous combustion, and well he should considering the ferocious intensity with which this 'Band' attacks their original music, with it's heavy use of radical invented scales. The Bassist appears to interweave drum and guitar parts within his bass lines, the drummer also layers syncopated (virtual & actual) percussion parts into his daring odd-metre grooves -verily, the guitarist (who sometimes plays faster than you can see or hear), will digitally drop an octave to cover the low end when the bass is up on his sixth, or tenth(!) string.
      But what kind of music IS it, really? If You put Nine Inch Nails, the Chieftains and Earth Wind & Fire into a blender and pressed 'Chops' You might have an inkling (Or just a huge bloody mess I suppose), Just don't call it 'Fusion', (no one likes the 'F' word). The band is seeking a daring & open- minded, imaginative female vocalist, so they can call themselves 'Alternative' instead of 'Instrumental', Good luck lads, You are unique'
      -Fatchna FickShonnell, Glasgow New Muzik Zine.

'Energetic and intense, dynamic and precise, and elaborately neoteric- they run on atomic power!'
      -Sharynne NicMacha of The Moors

'The most happening new band in the country'
      -WCUV FM radio DJ Captain P.J.

'I never thought I'd hear music like that again!'
      - a fusion fan in Harvard Square

'You guys sound like the Turkish army coming over the hill'
      -the King of Harvard Square

'Our bass player is afraid of you.'
      a band whose name we won't mention.

We also got an excellent review in Soundcheck Magazine, which I'll post here shortly, ah here it is now, see, that didn't take long.
     the following review by L.A. Joe appeared in the May 2000 issue of Boston Soundcheck magazine, three stars! (out of a possible four)
     M3 - 10-song CD
Produced and Arranged by M3; Executive Producer Bob Melpignano; Recorded and Mixed by Bob Melpignano at Energy Recording; Mastered by Jonathan Wyner, M3, and Dave Merullo at M Works
     Three-piece band; guitar bass and drums. Let's call it rock/fusion, vaguely reminiscent of Chick Corea's Return To Forever days without the keyboards. No vocals - just riffed up songs and some jamming. Bass player and guitar player are over the top, but the drummer is world class. My compliments to all. Geez have you guys practiced or what.
      Fave songs? Well I like the melody stuff on 'The Machine' and 'Mr. Radio' reminds me of something nice that Joe Satriani did, but I'm going with 'Impossible Figure (for Su)/Another Viking Victory at the Green Midget Cafe.' Hell the song title takes up half the review and it's a whopping nine minutes and twenty seconds. That deserves some sort of mention doesn't it? No? O.K. then I won't mention it. Other titles: 'The Mad Hatter,' 'Conviction,' and 'Sharon is Happy.' So is Joe. ; - L.A. N4 ***
