I am rather excited to finally listen to exceptionally awaited new album due out from legendary SikTh ‘The Future In Whose Eyes?’ due to be released on 2nd June on Millenium night. The album certainly did not disappoint as from beginning to end I was captivated by both the collective and individual talent of this iconic band. With new track and lyric video ‘Vivid’ premiered ahead of the album release  it makes a perfect first track for the album. Vivid is an outstanding fast paced song, vocally unique with melodic group intervals along with fun vocal solo’s all combined with the high speed, thrash metal sound and vivid guitar solo towards the end makes this first track highly addictive and causing an eagerness to hear what the rest of the album has to offer. ‘Century Of The Narcissist’ feels to slightly change tempo with a new metal/rock feel twist to it however holding onto it’s signiture thrash overtone making ‘Century Of The Narcissist’ a truely inspirational track. The Aura may certainly be one of my personal favourite tracks on the album. immediatey catchy and addictive Aura truly showcased the musical talent within SikTh and just why this band is held in such high regard.  Drawn in by talking vocals only to be followed up by an intense guitar and music solo intro before amazing vocals kick in.  The lyrics are both catchy and easy to sing along to making this peice a perfect crowd pleaser.  ‘Cracks Of Light’ has the first guest vocalist to ever feature on a SikTh Album Periphery singer Spencer Sotelo who joins singer Mikee on the track.  A slower starting song with a concentration on joint vocals alongside deep guitar riffs offering up a hypnotic sound allowing the listener to relate with the song and each of the band members, definitely a track to be played no matter what the mood. ‘The Moon’s Been Gone For Hours’ is an immediately fast pased track with clear guitar riffs defining their signiture sound making Sikth the Gods of Metal they are.  At over an halfway point through the album they have kept the pace and sound as intriguing and appealing as the begining of the album was. ‘No Wishbones’ gave a feeling of a more musically focused track with a lot of emphasis on the different instruments used, the band’s harmonising abilities and the unique quaily each bring to SikTh to which I particually enjoyed the intense guitar solo towards the end of the track.  The Illusion ie the last real track before an ending interlusion contains elements of thrash and old school metal demonstrating that the highly anticipated return of SikTh has not been in vain and worth every minute of the wait. With amazing guitar interludes alongside specialist vocals this is with out a doubt one of the tracks that stand out to me the most on the album and an outstanding last track.

Highly anticipated new studio album ‘The Future In Whose Eyes?’ from Legendary SikTh is due for release on June 2nd, set to be one of the most exceptional album’s of 2017 and most certainly could not come a moment sooner for all SikTh fans.  Consisting of Mikee W Goodman – Vocals, Dan Weller – Guitar, Dan Foord – Drums, James Leach – Bass, Pin – Guitar and Joe Rosser – Vocals. A return from the hero’s of Metal known for revolutionising the genre and providing inspiration for many other subsequent band’s such as ‘Protest The Hero’ and ‘TesseracT’, braking into uncharted musical territory and creating their own unique sound eventually leading to the birth of djent metal.  Due for release on the 2nd June on Millennium Night a newly hatched label from Snapper Music British pioneers SikTh have shaped heavy music over the years and are assuredly ready to release their first full length studio album since 2006’s ‘Death Of A Dead Day’.  Guitarist and Producer Dan Weller states “Ever since SikTh was formed way back at the turn of the century we’ve tried to self improve as musicians and as song writers. We take our music very seriously. This record feels like the one we’ve always wanted to make. We spent over a year writing it and pushed ourselves extremely hard – sometimes too hard. Opacities was the rebirth of SikTh but ‘The Future…’ is our statement – I want this album to define us. I don’t care how over ambitious it sounds – we want this record to be heard by every metal fan on the planet.”  SikTh Vocalist and Lyricist Mikee Goodman also added “Personally I feel this is our best album yet. From my point I have written all vocals and lyrics. I have taken myself to some very dark places, commentated on this world as I see it. Also swimming into fictional worlds and dreamscapes. There are some beautiful moments. The band have made incredible music, brutal, technically warped mixed with some psychedelic moments. I think we’ve done something special here.”

With renowned Monkey Puzzle House Studios controlling the guitars and drums along with Adam “Nolly”Getgood (Periphery) covering the mixing all vocals recorded for this approaching album were recorded at Mikee’s personal studio alongside Iron Maiden’s Adrian Smith’s R&R Studios. It is the first release featuring new co-vocalist and former member of Aliases Joe Rosser.  With high praise bestowed from Mikee he stated “Joe has done a great job singing on this album . He has a lot of scope to his voice, he’s very versatile indeed, we were really pleased how he sang the lines in”. ‘The Future In Whose Eyes’ also excitingly features the first ever guest vocalist on a SikTh album – Spencer Sotelo singer in Periphery who joins Mikee on the track ‘Cracks Of Light’.  This happy partnership was forged in late 2016 after being invited to join Periphery’s US Tour.  “They’re really nice people, everyone on that US tour felt it was the best one they’d been on,” smiles Mikee, it was over those weeks that a plan was hatched “We actually got him down to R&R Studios in Uxbridge where we made the album. I really like Periphery and especially love Spencer’s voice, he’s not your usual djent singer, and he’s very much a spiritual man. He knows his and mind well and so we nailed the song really quickly”.

Adding to the excitement ahead of the album release SikTh have premiered a new song ‘Vivid’ the second track on ‘The Future In Whose Eyes?” to which Mikee explains the depth behind the song – “Lyrically it is inspired by traumatic dreaming. The verses talk from perspective of being in the actual dream, where the chorus’ are in despair from an awoken perspective. The song itself has a lot of elements of both tradition and new SikTh.”  This special album can be purchased in many different formats to include:
Deluxe 12” hard book featuring:
⦁ 44 page artwork book, with additional, exclusive artwork from Meats Meier, handwritten lyrics from Mikee Goodman
⦁ CD The Future In Whose Eyes? 12 original album tracks

Exciting times in store for English metal band Partisan with the release of their new single ‘Ashes’ due out on the 7th April.  Formed in Manchester, Lancashire during early 2013 the band want nothing more than to imbue authentic rock into the limelight, re-invigorating the genre and taking the music scene by storm with daring, gritty and tenacious rock anthems.  Consisting of founding member and also lead vocals and guitar Stuart Armstrong, Don Albon on bass and newest member Leo Stanfield on drums the band currently have an EP released and most recent single ‘Juggernaut’ making their new single highly anticipated.  In high demand Partisan have a string of releases and gigs planned as well as planning a return to the US after an outstanding response due to playing piano’s in New York as well as LA’s Whiskyagogo in late 2016.

When listening to ‘Ashes’ I was immediately drawn in by the hypnotic vocals, melodic riffs and intense rock and indie sound.  Instantaneously catchy the fresh and addictive lyrics alongside the instrumentals are superb and kept me gripped for the duration of the song to include great guitar solo’s towards the end. Certainly a band deserving of attention within the music scene and with UK tour dates lined up Partisan will without doubt be the group to see this year as not only do these boy’s have a unique sound but also a great stage presence.  Kicking off in March and set to finish in August it is positively a gig not to be missed.  Take a look at the tour dates listed below for a chance to see this excellent band…..

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend this year’s Holifest which in my opinion was the best to date.  With an assortment of DJs, entertainment, refreshment, dancers, fun and of course paint there was an endless amount of fun to be had.  The atmosphere was superb and with an exceptionally large crowd the feeling of excitement was tangible as everybody there came to enjoy this year’s Holifest.  One of the most popular festivals in India celebrated to signify the beginning of spring and the victory of good over evil and marking the beginning of the New Year, widely celebrated by all faiths around the world this famous tradition has strong ties to Hinduism.  Traditionally people take to the streets covering each other in powdered paint and coloured water in celebrations that see communities coming together.  The story behind this being the majority of people believed that the water battle comes from Lord Krishna who was a rather mischievous boy who would throw coloured water, now transcending into modern day and all cultures celebrating this amazing Indian Hindu tradition in exciting revolutional ways.

With more than 12,000 Holi goers taking part in this spectacular event on the 2nd August at Wembley Park coming from across London the crowd came to see acts such as DJ Tim Cullen and Ben Wood produce amazing sounds to which bags of colour would be thrown into the air every hour on the hour.  It is an imperative rule at Holifest that paint provided by Holi only is permitted.  This is because Holi powder is made of rice flour, which has been optimized with natural ingredients to use outdoors. The colour powder is completely biodegradable, compostable, non-toxic and allergy-free, also with no harmful ingredients the powder is also compatible for the skin and hair.  I found that Wembley Park was a great venue to Host this year’s Holifest as the layout was well organised, exceptionally large and perfectly staffed. With a token credit card system provided topping it up and purchasing drinks was easy and quick as was purchasing other food and refreshments using cash.  The sound was clear and could be heard from a fair distance back from the main stage.  As with any event the attending crown will determine whether it is successful and the crowd this year did not disappoint as everyone there was there to enjoy a hot day of good music, friends, colour and a sense of community.
I have experienced many great events over the summer, Holifest London was without a doubt one of the most memorable and fun.  If Holifest 2017 is not already firmly in your diary I strongly recommend that you add it as it most certainly one of my favourite events of the summer.

An exciting summer was had this year which included a visit to Ibiza I decided to fit in and review the super clubs and must see venues Ibiza has to offer, in short must do’s if you have the opportunity to visit this amazing place.  With a combination of sun, sea, great club atmosphere’s and world famous DJs it is clear to see why this is definitely a holiday hotspot.  Here is a list of the best places and acts I had a chance to be a part of in Ibiza this year and some of the clubs I recommend visiting…………….
Pacha

Certainly one of the largest clubs Ibiza has to offer it was one of the most memorable, well organised and magnificent evening’s of the holiday.  With outstanding sound systems delivering a clear and powerful listening experience in any location within the club and some of the most visually amazing lighting it makes Pacha one of the best rave venue’s the island has to offer. Pacha plays host to some of the biggest names in the music scene and I was fortunate to go on the night of Solomun with plus one Anna.  Solomun is known for redefining House Music across Europe. Enhancing this genre with a modern and intense twist demonstrated by mind blowing DJ sets and productions means Solomun most certainly knows how to put on a spectacularly exciting evening with a fast paced vibe that never falters. With a raw emotion and passion for music he delivers outstanding set’s including famous boiler room set which has around eight million views and the fasted growing Boiler room video to date.  All in all if you are visiting Ibiza Pacha is a must and if possible DJ Solomun as his set is one not to be missed…….

Privilege

The only way to introduce this venue is by first stating that with a capacity of 10,000 people  Privilege is the largest night club in the entire world!  Beginning in the early 1970s starting out as a restaurant before expanding to include a bar and swimming pool it was known as Club San Rafael. After being sold in 1979 changed it’s name to Ku before becoming Privilege in 1995.  Mentioned in film ‘Kevin and Perry go large’ and previous host to famous event ‘Manumission’ Privilege is without a doubt one of the most awe inspiring and well laid out venues in Ibiza. The sound was impeccable with deep base heard from every inch of the venue making it feel as though you were still at the front of the stage even if listening from far back.  The lights and lasers used there were most certainly the best and delivered lighting that emphasized the splendid layout and out of this world sounds, all working hand in hand to produce the best rave possible.  I was fortunate enough to be visiting Ibiza on the dates allowing me to attend the ‘Paint Party’ held at this one of a kind venue. This unique concept by ‘Midnight’ held on Tuesday night’s at Privilege brings a combination the most must see DJs in the music scene, an abundance of colour and one of the best party atmosphere’s you are likely to experience.  With six paint cannons catapulting eight hundred litres of paint into the dancing crowd not to mention the bottles of squeezable paint that could be purchased by party goers on site there is not a more colourful evening to be had. Along with animation and special effects this visually and musically stimulating event is one of the most exciting and different club night’s to attend in Ibiza and a must to add to the diary.

Space

Space is by far one of the best club’s in Ibiza when it comes to size, sound systems, lighting, events and atmosphere.  Although Space opened in 1986 it did not take it’s true form until being taken over by Pepe Rosello in 1989 who began introducing top DJ’s to it’s stage to include the likes of Jose de Divina, Reche and Carl Cox who maintained a residency for almost fifteen years.  However with Rosello stepping down Carl Cox has had a final closing show at Space in September 2016 ending his residency at this unique super club.  The amazing sound and lighting systems used by Space went together perfectly with the exceptional entertainment making the evening flawless. I went to the Elrow event held at Space and with regards to entertainment this was the most fun and out there performance I have ever experienced at a rave particularly one of this magnitude.  Consisting of Inflatables, confetti and fun the actors there are inclusive of the crowd and make you feel as though you are a part of the show.  Never a dull moment there were trapeze type performers putting on amazing acts above the crowd, things such as hats being given away and a continuous burst of colour for the entirety of the event.   Elrow at Space was the most surreal, unique and crazy event I was able to attend while visiting Ibiza and certainly the most memorable. With DJs such as Groove Armada, Eats Everything and Kolsch plus many more playing the Space stage’s it is always a night of nonstop colour, fun, entertainment and good music.

Ocean Beach

Probably my favourite day and night time venue in Ibiza.  With a mix of sophistication, good drinks, excellent food, entertainment and atmosphere Ocean Beach is certainly up there with the best. With all entertainment and features set around a 600m2 swimming pool it leaves nothing to be desired. With a choice of Fusion Cuisine ranging from light bites or full lunches which can be served al fresco to one of the many beds by the pool, invigorating massage from one of the fully qualified Ocean Beach Therapists or one of the specialist cocktails created by absolute or one of the other amazing bars, Ocean Beach has all the ingredients needed to make a superb establishment.  With both local and international artists gracing the Ocean Beach stage to wondrous trapeze acts interacting with the crowd and throwing out prizes ranging from CDs, T-shirts, Tops and other merchandise the time there is visually and musically inspiring and entertaining.  The VIP is most certainly to be desired with the venue providing the ultimate beach club experience to include a personal waiter service and other special perks.  For a day and evening combining good music, food and vibe Ocean Beach is a must see when visiting Ibiza………

With a very intimate acoustic like setting Mishkin Fitzgerald best known for role as lead singer and pianist in British Orchestral Punk Rock band Birdeatsbaby in her own solo act was an amazing show.  Hosted by Veg bar Brixton it was the perfect setting for this EP launch and musical showcase.  Headlined by a couple of other warm up acts within the same acoustic setting in the forms of Keith Pemberton and Anna Rest Easy a scene and mood was set for Fitzgerald as the crowd was highly anticipating her arrival especially as known to have a wonderful voice and her solo acts a massive variation in musical genre from Birdeatsbaby.  Influenced by artists such as Nick Cave and Patti Smith along with classical piano music Mishkin has a very distinctive sound making her memorable, likeable and exceptionally talented.

 The lighting and sound was perfect for the intimate setting to which drinks and even food from the restaurant were served to the guests where they were seated so no large disturbances were caused to the set.  Her voice along with expertly played piano could be heard throughout the music and gig area downstairs in the venue and everyone seemed captivated by Mishkin’s show and performance.  Opening the set with Hanging Tree and moving on to Poison Throat gave a sense of suspense and intrigue with clear excitement as to what the next song would be.  With a couple of cover songs played the tempo of the performance kept a regular pace keeping the audience hooked on every song.  I particularly enjoyed ‘Help Yourself’ (Devil makes three cover) as it was witty, funny and brought alive by Mishkin’s shining personality.  I thoroughly enjoyed Mishkin’s set from beginning to end as her vocal ability alongside her sheer instrumental talent makes her performances unique and entertaining.  Promoting ‘Seraphim’ new five track EP is a CD only release taster of the full feature length album arriving in May 2017 which will consist of thirteen tracks.  If you are unable to wait for this it has currently been fully released via Mishkin’s band’s crowd-funding Patreon page which is raising $800 per “thing” and consistently climbing.  If you don’t already own ‘Seraphim’ it is a must have in my opinion, for a mellow, deep and moving sound Mishkin Fitzgerald is perfect to listen to in any situation and I await any new material from this amazing artist.
