音乐风格: Nu-metal / Alternative metal / Hardcore
在myspacecom的介绍是hardcore,不过感觉是Alternative metal,听他们的歌,我感觉听到了drowning pool,linkin park,disturbed,Sevendust等等很多乐队.但是他们的风格是独一无二的.并不是模仿.
老外的评论:"我们谈论的是一只融合了 brutal numetal 和 classic hardrock的乐队, 歌曲"Stand down" 开头仅仅用了点简短的riff,但是听起来却相当不一般.感觉让人想到了Vanhalen(著名吉他大师.michael jackson的beat it里面的吉他就是van halen弹的),更黑暗的一首 "Lie awake" 可以说感觉就像是Deftones 翻唱的U2歌曲, Media Lab 翻唱的 "With or without you"是我听过翻唱过 U2 的歌的里翻唱最好的.相当重的 "As the stars melt away" 基本上应该被评在每个最佳新金属乐队的专辑里."
这张专辑由前 Machine Head/Soulfly 的吉他手 Logan Mader 的公司出版发行.
今年可能出新专辑Media Lab - TBA - (2007/2008) ,乐队已经改名为AIZEN.介绍里的的新myspace网址不对(www.myspace.com/aizen),找到的新网址在下面.

Since their inception two years ago, there has always been an instant air of importance surrounding the explosive San Diego-based band MEDIA LAB. The band members can feel it, the rabid fan base they have cultivated can feel it, and, with the band's debut album, Bleeding Memory, to be released by Sunland Records in January 2006 , the whole world will soon feel it too.
Produced and mixed by former MACHINE HEAD and SOULFLY guitarist Logan Mader, the 13-song album is as epic in scope as it is ferocious in attack, flawlessly alternating between the brutal riffs and memorable melodies that have become the band's trademark. Without a doubt, songs such as album-opener "Embers," "Hate Me Again" and the title track serve as a testimony to the band's heavy roots. But it is their attention to melody in songs such as "Come Alive," "Save Me" and their blistering cover of the classic U2 hit "With Or Without You" that raises MEDIA LAB head and shoulders above their hardcore contemporaries and broadens not only their musical vocabulary, but their fanbase as well. As such, MEDIA LAB is one of the few metal bands that have been embraced by women as well as by men, due to the heartfelt tales of lost love belted out by singer Sean Nelson, a charismatic performer who bleeds for the audience through his words, and the dynamic musicianship of Alexandria Reyes, a female guitar player who, together with former SPRUNG MOKEY guitarist Will Riley, creates a crushing wall of sound.
In a live setting, MEDIA LAB has to be seen to be believed. The band projects a confidence usually found at the arena level, a status they are destined to achieve. Already they have seen attendance at their shows to over 1,000 people in some Southwestern markets as they currently enjoy airplay on San Diego radio stations 91X, Rock 105.3 and 94.9 FM as well as on KOMP 92.2 (Las Vegas). Along the way they have racked up endorsements by Evil Threads & Tribal Clothing, Devious Industries, Sick World, Pearl Drums, Soul Tone Cymbals and Platinum Collectibles. The band was also nominated for Best Hard Rock Band at the recent 15th Annual San Diego Music Awards.
