Review The Artist (53)
-Jared Leto (Vocals and guitar)
-Tomo Milicevic (Guitar)
-Matt Wachter (Keyboard and bass)
-Shannon Leto (Drums)
30 Seconds To Mars started out as a small family project started by Jared and Shannon Leto. Things started to pick up and Matt Wachter joined the band as a bassist. The bands first two guitarists (Kevin Drake & Solon Bixler) left the band due to issues primarily related to touring. Tomo Milicevic auditioned to be one of the guitarists by the three band members and is now the guitarist.
30 Seconds To Mars' first self-titled album, produced by Bob Ezrin, was released in 2002 to critical acclain, but only achieve sales of just over 100,000. The bands second album, A Beautiful Lie, was released on August 30th, 2005. The album was produced by Josh Abraham whose producing credits also include Orgy, Velvet Revolver, and Linkin Park
Beacause A Beautiful Lie was leaked 5 months before its release, the band decided to include two bonus tracks: "Battle of One" (an original song that was also set to be the album's title track when it was first announced) and "Hunter". To furter promote the album, the band also enclosed "golden passes" in a select number of copies, which grant their owners access to any 30 Seconds to Mars concert free of charge, anlong with backstage access.
Their music is filled with emotions and are very personal to them (their songs are based on real life experiences) This band is not about fame, money, and any of that stuff. They are all about the music and they sing from their hearts. Jared never used his title as an actor to promote his band and never will. Their unique style of music and heart moving lyrics fills the listeners heart with so much emotion.
Echelon is a street team for the band 30 Seconds To Mars, which helps in bringing friends to the shows, convincing friends to buy band merchandise, phoning local radio stations to request the band's songs, putting up posters, posting to band forums or related bulletin boards online, and maintaining zines or websites dedicated to the band.
Please promote this band!! <33

30STM forever my favorite | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/24/12
I love 30stm, I don't know where i've been these last 40 years but here I am loving everything these great guys put out. I cannot wait any longer for their newest album. PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE make another one soon?!!! Whenever I want to get my spirits up or just want to feel alive I listen to either Abeautiful lie or This is war. I cannot say enough how awesome these guys are. For now I guess I'll have to suffer and just ware out my only two cd's, hoping the next album comes out.

My cousin introduced me to 30 STM a little while ago and I have not really kept of with there new songs. When kings and queens came out I downloaded it from iTunes and was listening to it all the time. Some how my grandma heard it and really liked it so I put the song on a cd for her, she listened to it constantly and it became her favorite song. Soon after she was diagnose with a brain tumor and was given weeks to live. When we got her home from the doctors she walked over to her cd player and played the song kings and queens one last time. When it ended she put the cd back into it's little case gave to my 12 year old cousin and said "ok im ready". She passed away not long after that day. Now everytime I hear that song I think of my grandma an how happy she was. 30 Seconds To Mars thank you for being there for my family.

PR | Reviewer: Trinity | 5/17/09
I love 30 STM music, but it seems like they need a PR group to help promote them. Most of my friends and family listen to 30 STM and enjoy it, but they don't even know it's 30 STM. Since I'm the music guru of the family and most of my friends, I get calls all the time from people asking what band plays this or that song and I usually can figure it out, but I'm surprised by how many people don't know about 30 STM and I think it's because they aren't getting enough PR. Their music ROCKS and I feel that if they were getting the publicity they would be on the radio and tv and people would be much more familiar with them. Plus, it would promote them doing more concerts. BTW you can request them in concert in your home town by going to:

Amazing | Reviewer: susan | 4/3/09
I heard "The Kill" for the first time on the radio last week. I didn't know the band so i googled some lyrics. Ran right out & bought the cd. It hasn't left my cd player since. They are amazing. I wish they were touring.

she saw the kill, when the two jareds cross paths she thought that, the tux version was Jack nicolson, and he was werein a hat. 30 Seconds to mars is the BEST fuckin band! nuff said
a new fan and forever more | Reviewer: autumn renee | 3/4/09
Ive always had a portion of "The Kill" as a ringtone and never really did research to where it came from. Till my brother called me one day and said jared leto is part of this band. i didnt believe him at first and didnt think anything of it afterward. Now my brother is down again and he placed a cd in the cd changer and behold it was 30 seconds to mars. without my brother telling me about the band and placing that cd in there i would have never found that i actually love this band and the music they write. I find that it has hit me in a moment of my life that i can relate too. Big thanks to my brother that constantly opens the door for music that he insist that i will like specially this band! no matter how long they have been around they still are awesome.

Good | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/20/09
I think this review was pretty good but, I think you should like put more stuff about 30 seconds to mars in their biography. Also you should include wherethey came from and hpw they got discovered!:)
Nil | Reviewer: Nil | 1/3/09
well they tried to make their music in Heavy Alternative [like Tool] and then they made something else, something new. that's how you win!
They are good at what they do however it seems that the band would be better with some replacements.
