Review: Flood The Sky – Demo Tracks

Artist: Flood The Sky
Release: Demo Tracks

Flood The Sky are a metalcore band from Southampton formed in late 2009, Featuring ex-members of Bury Tomorrow, Ghosts On Pegasus Bridge, In Her Ruin and Where Loyalties Lie.Flood The Sky hit the UK last year playing their first show to a sold out venue and have been honoured to share the stage with heavyweights – Confide, I Am Ghost, Lower Than Atlantis, Eyes Set To Kill, Post-mortem Promises, Martyr Defiled, Burn The Fleet, TRC, Feed The Rhino, Polar, Desolated, Death Of An Artist and many more bands. After taking a break the band is back to doing what they do best making a huge comeback this summer with a brand new member to the band.

Upon first listening to Flood The Sky I was some what judgemental, as with a lot of metalcore bands I tend to hear the same beats and lyrics and it can put me off searching for more bands in that genre. But to my surprise, Flood The Sky served a fresh, melodic, yet heavy load of music to my ears.

I started out by listening to track Endeavors. Lead singer Jamie Morgan truly has an incredible voice that could be versatile to many styles. His voice roars through heavier drums and guitars before dropping down into singing along with what could only be described as intense dark synths. The use of synth lines by the band is amazing and flows like a dream between songs. The band seems to have a great understanding of music and how it meshes.

Steady Hands is a very well constructed song with a lot of impressive beats and vocals. The synth used in Steady Hands was a total winner with me and gave the song a lot more rhythm and made me want to get up and mosh. I’ve always felt the introduction to a song to be as important as the verses and the choruses and Steady Hands delivers with theirs keeping the audience listening and wanting more.

Courage instantly stood out and not just because its acoustic. The vocals were so incredibly raw. The softness of the guitar compliments the lead singers voice creating an almost angelic sound and it’s hard to ignore the amazing talent this band have. Any band who can strip back from their instruments and still create an amazing piece of music get a ten out of ten in my books.

Last but not least new single When In Rome which was only posted on their facebook page a short while ago. With an impeccable entrance and drums heavier than hell, the song works up a fierce appetite with chilling vocals that fit perfectly into this dramatic metalcore song.

Its a truly close call picking a favourite out of what ive heard so ill pick them all! I can positively say these guys are one of my favourite UK metalcore bands and definatly deserve a listen from all HTF readers. All songs are available for free download off the bands facebook page, Enjoy!
