If you liked the first album no doubt you liked it for its mixture of complexity, 'heaviness' and its intoxicating melody, simply put 'Death of a Dead Day' takes these and pushes them to quite impressive heights. Every member plays there hearts out (Foord now using even more complex drums and a lot more double kick) and the whole album seems to gel together regardless of the contrasting speeds and form each track takes. A criticism of Sikth is that upon first hearing new material, it can sound, well, a bit like noise. After first flicking through the album I thought exactly this, but after the first 3 listens the album revealed itself for what it really is, a really good listen. Real effort, real passion, real talent, the best album of the year so far for me and certainly one I wouldn’t be without. Buy if you like heavy complex music, just give it a chance.
