On their sophomore release, "Armageddon Party," Melt incorporates a variety of styles and melds them together, combining elements that are dynamic and jarring, yet still accessible and melodic. Likened to Siouxsie and the Banshees, Evanenscence, and Portishead, Melt exhibits the ability to transition flawlessly from foreboding and heavy to sweetly melodic. Live, Melt are often joined by classically trained multi-instrumentalist Mel Fitzhugh, sitting in on several songs, adding violin, glockenspeil, and even trumpet.

Melt’s "Armageddon Party" is a hard-edged collection of wit, humor and integrity, with soaring vocals, sparkling guitars, and thunderous bass and percussion. "Armageddon Party" is sure to attract fans of the tensions that are trademarks of goth and punk.

Melt keeps that tension building with dynamics that swell to big crescendos. Dan Inzana’s guitar sound is a combination of alternative and atmospheric, while still maintaining a soaring driving feel, and Ben Lyons’ and Paul Pipitone’s versatility on drums and bass, respectively, bring rhythms from all over the globe while sounding authentic and powerful. Lead vocalist Lindsey Kyte seamlessly transitions from a Cherie Currie toughness to the haunting style of Amy Lee throughout "Armageddon Party," putting a spotlight on her choral and theatrical background.

The fast-paced “Draggin’ Me Down” is the highlight of this 7-track EP. It rocks from the title track--the dark carnival that is the “Armageddon Party”-- to the brooding, “Sleeping Butane,” closing with a bonus live track, “Glory Box.”

Melt is Paul Pipitone (bass), Dan Inzana (guitar/keys), Ben Lyons (drums), and classically trained soprano Lindsey Kyte (lead vocals). "Armageddon Party," Melt’s second album, was recorded at 1867 Studios with Chris McLaughlin (Mean Creek, Township).
