If you loved the first album, prepare to experience your new addiction. Ever since being introduced to “The Trees…” I’ve been a fan of the technical insanity that is Sikth. With “Death of a Dead Day” they not only refined their sound with excellent production, but take the songwriting to a whole new level. Blazing riffs, catchy harmonized choruses, and an overall original sound that will have you craving more. This album was everything I hoped for and then some. Anyone describing this genius as “horrible” might want to pull up a seat with Eddie Trunk and listen to 1978 Judas Priest for awhile, because this definitely isn’t your grandpappy’s metal.
