"Psycle is a 4-piece rock band that is based out of Providence, RI. Psycle was formed in January of 1999 in Castleton Vermont. Playing venues all over New England to New York City and even Canada, Psycle continued to bring their energy and sound to each performance. Each member of the Psycle family has left a lasting impression on each song and show and made this band what it is today. Psycle disbanded in 2011 but has now re-emerged with longtime drummer Jay Carvalho, Mike Kaz on bass and Joe Nicolazzo on guitar.
Bringing back some favorites from their previous catalog of songs and writing brand new music, Psycle hopes to bring that same energy and songwriting that gave them their mark on the music community. A huge thanks to all the great musicians who have made the journey before and our new lineup hopes to make them proud and continue to write great music."
Alright all you rock and roll fanatics out there looking for a solid sound and high energy music, let me introduce you to Psycle. Putting Providence, Rhode Island on the map in regards to music..
Their song Face the Fire is the perfect balance of adrenaline filled rhythm and hypnotic vocals. After you listen to the song you are left with a sense of hope. Like you just had a life altering battle and you are walking out of the rubble, victorious and leaving it behind to create a much brighter future. The powerful drum fills frame the gritty breakdowns perfectly of the guitar. The execution of the song itself is phenomenal and quite impressive. It is a song that is very relatable to all people because who hasn't faced an obstacle in their life? I respect the energy in their music and how it truly empowers people to get up and fight to live.

Their song "Break" is what I would consider a hard rock anthem just in the way it was executed in regards to vocals, guitars, and drums. The intro gave you a nice mellow feeling before the breakdown hit, then it was followed with the drums which are showcased amazingly in this song. The intensity in the vocals is like that of a raging river trying to be restrained by a dam, only to be completely crushed under the power. Honestly the more I listened to the song, Break, it really did remind me of a raging river of emotions because you would have the powerful rapids that swept you away (in a good way, mind you) followed by moments of calm water where you could just bask in that moment of serenity. Similar to how life can be at times.
While the EP itself has just the 4 songs, each song is filled from start to finish with passion. The Road I'm On is yet another great song to get you really pumped up about taking on the world after a dark period in your life. To not live life for someone else but to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and live for yourself. The lyrics convey such sincerity in their message that you can tell the artists genuinely feel the music they are creating which is a rare trait in this day and age. The Road I'm On will inspire you to conquer the world and bring the light back into your life. Of course the song, Long Way Down, is a refreshing break and nice change of intensity within the EP. It has a more mellow but still edgy vibe with a really fantastic guitar solo. The song has almost a Shinedown vibe to it but done with their own special twist making it stand out from them in my opinion. I look forward to hearing more from Psycle because they certainly have the talent to make the industry take notice of them.
