SONIC SYNDICATE is a Falkenberg melodic Death Metal band, originally founded as FALLEN ANGELS and centred on the Sjunnesson brothers, singer Richard and guitarists Roger and Robin. In the Spring of 2002 the siblings found themselves without a band as their previous act, Power Metal combo TUNES OF SILENCE, had just folded. FALLEN ANGELS was crafted that Autumn, going on to produce the demos 'Fall From Heaven' and 'Black Lotus' in 2003 with 'Extinction' being delivered in 2004. That year bassist Magnus Svensson was replaced by Karin Axelsson.

The band switched title to SONIC SYNDICATE, signing to Florida's Pivotal Rockordings for an August 2005 album 'Eden Fire', recorded at StudioMega in Varberg. SONIC SYNDICATE joined forces with fellow Swedish metal artists AVATAR and INEVITABLE END for the 'Sweden United Metal' tour commencing in late January 2006. SONIC SYNDICATE parted ways with drummer Kristoffer Bäcklund in early February. John "Runken" Bengtsson of DØDZ stepped in as replacement.

The group made the news in July when SONIC SYNDICATE scored a contract with Nuclear Blast Records, winning a band contest comprising 1,500 entrants judged by a jury consisting of the Nuclear Blast staff and representatives from European magazines. SONIC SYNDICATE entered Black Lounge Studios in Avesta on November 20th 2006 with producer Jonas Kjellgren to cut album tracks. 'Only Inhuman' arrived in May 2007.

'Love And Other Disasters', the third album from SONIC SYNDICATE, was released in Europe on 19th September 2008 and North America on 14th October via Nuclear Blast Records. Digipack versions hosted two extra tracks. CD-signing sessions in its home country during September featured the band members performing short acoustic sets. A promotional video was shot for the track 'Jack Of Diamonds' with director Patric Ullaeus.
