BLACK SKIES " Hexagon "
( Self - released ) 2008.

Doom/stoner/sludge metal - USA

A North Carolina trio Black Skies, a some months ago has released an EP issue, untitled
"Hexagon". Actuelle EP was followed a year before with Demo material. Black Skies belongs to that sort of groups, whose musical options you will prefer and support, or simply-hate. Their sound is faithfull to doom/stoner/sludge variants, and as a band they are nearer to older school. They are infected by the Black Sabbath, Melvins and even Saint Vitus influences. Musically they delivers : hard, hypnotic, and at the same time monotonous sound, but as a band stands proudly, with clear offering attitude. Its vision is uncompromised, and it's evident after listening of EP's materials, where exists 6 tracks in, with little less than 23 minutes of music.
Black Skies are manniristically defined, and its option relevantelly connect 70's, 80's period with nowadays genre's tendencies.

Rating : 7,5/10
