from Denmark. The creative core of the group consists of Blake Gardner (wearing the producer’s h at as well as covering the main guitar duties) and Bjarne Matthiesen on lead voc als. “What first started out as some harmless studio fun, quickly progressed into a serious ‘PsyMetal’ musical addiction” See The Sky bring a breath of fresh air to prog-metal, a style that should be wi de open, by definition, but that often relies on the same, old cliches. This is definitely not the case of See The Sky, who managed to create something fresh an d original with their unique twist and genre-defying attitude. When you think about this particular music scene, a handful of names will undeni ably come to mind. To mention one of the biggest names: Dream Theater, which, fo r better or worse have become a landmark of progressive metal through the years. See The Sky however, couldn’t be more different as a band. The essence itself of t he progressive-ness in their music comes from another perspective, definitely fa r from Dream Theater’s classic, 70s influenced style. The danish pair of metal vet erans prefers to toy around with an array of modern sound formulas, from new met al, to hardcore, to thrash, post rock. The sound even go beyond the realms of hardcore music, on to be influenced by m ore traditional forms of rock, psychedelia,as well possessing a cinematic feel a t times, that could be featured in the soundtrack of some hollywood colossal. In their own words, the danish duo of Bjarne Matthesen (former Heywire) and Blak e Gardner (former Wintergarden member) “is a metal band who dares to be different”. Despite the fact that this band started out almost as a hobby, the pair managed to craft a whole album. The spontaneous nature of the project’s genes is definitely one of the sources of the strength of their music: Creativity runs free and wild two talented musician s can enjoy some pressure-less, good time in the studio. Their brand new album NWODOA stays true to the band’s eclectic and eccentric attit ude. Melody and aggression are central in equal doses, showcasing the band’s versatilit y when it comes to face different genres and make them into one, personal sound. The band strives (and manages to) steer each one of the songs into a different musical direction while keeping a constant watermark. See The Sky self-describes their music as PsyMetal, and the term really fits wit h their unpredictable songs, which carry the listener along through a real music al journey.
