Album Notes
"When we come into this world, some believe we make our own destiny,and then there are some who believe that we have a path that is chosen for us. No matter which you believe..." the lyrics in Elements of the Paw will make you understand that we all suffer the same shortcomings in life. We are all on this planet to live significant lives, or less fortunate ones. But beauty always lies in the eye of the beholder. We all have that one person that we feel has taken something away from us as the lyrics suggest in "2nd best" one of the albums more aggressive tunes. Lyrics that marry disgust with anger, such as "Take a look at what I have; you will never be like me. Twisting minds to get your way; like a pest, I wish you'd just go away" make it clear that we are never safe from the mindless pilfering that threatens our happiness.

The album is not full of anger and dismay; there are many tracks that deal with love, devotion, bliss, and forgiveness. "Paradox" is a perfect example of one of these songs, the hard driven guitar chops, mixed with an ominous keyboard lead give this song a very seductive and erotic charm that often entangles us with love. The title track "Elements of the Paw" raises the question towards the meaning of our existence. We are so caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, that we just focus on the negative aspects of our lives. But the upbeat flirty rhythm of this song is almost like that of a child taunting a bully in retaliation of the unwanted demeaning actions taken against him. This is made obvious with words like "... pain, sadness, love and death. Nothing will ever get above me... never!" Overall Elements of the Paw is an hour long tour through the life of a soul that has lived out many of the shortcomings of life.

This album is a MUST have
Only a few groups have made such an impact on their fans as Sub-Level 03 has!! This album is a testament to that. I can't stop playing "Elements of the paw". They almost have the sound that I loved to here from Depeche Mode, in the early years, but with a deeper meaning, much deeper. This album is a must have for anyone who enjoys this genre of music!!

Star Bright Ventures

Have seen them live - lots of energy and lots of FUN!
Had the opportunity to see them live and in person over the 4th and they are full of life and really rock! Have the comfortable feeling of Pink Floyd, Metallica and others of the 80's. Great original stuff.


Diverse mix of progressive metal, techno, and harmonic vocals
Sub-level 03 features complex and meaningful lyrics sung in a range of styles that pay homage to Goth, Rock, and Depeche Mode.

The music ranges from instrumental interludes to dance floor hits with a pleasant progression and structure to each song.

Definitely worth checking out.
