4.0 out of 5 stars Mad mad crazy and mad!, 29 Mar 2004
This review is from: The Trees Are Dead & Dried Out Wait For Something Wild (Audio CD)
Putting what these guys do into words is difficult to say the least! Sikth have a very unique and refreshing take on hardcore, combining the usual fast paced drumming, crushing guitar riffs, sporadic time changes and screaming vocals with plucky rhythems, lovely melodies, chaotic structures and a dark sense humour that gives the album a nice tone throughout. Add to this mix the two lead vocalists, both of which have superb voices, creating an almost conversation like structure to some of the songs where the two bounce of each other making it all rather confusing at times!
All of this together creates a sound that is heavy, interesting and completely schizophrenic. The instrumentals and poems are also very good, giving a very weird element to the album which I absolutely love! I am yet to see Sikth live and I hope they can keep together the chaotic sound on this cd when on stage. All in all, this album for me is a bit of a landmark in the UK hardore metal scene and I urge all fans of metal/noisecore to give it a look. Stand out tracks are "Scent of the obscene", "Skies of the millenium night" and "Such the fool".
