Oh hey, more Basick-related news! I think at this point it’s safe to say that Basick Records are the best record label around when it comes to the ratio of excellent bands on their roster, which comes out to about 100%. They’ve just been on fire lately, releasing some of the best albums this year, including Uneven Structure‘s Februus and Aliases‘ Safer than Reality. In case you didn’t think they could get any better, think again, because they’ve just announced the signing of both The Algorithm and Skyharbor.
The Algorithm is the experimental one-man project of Frenchman Rémi Gallego that fuses electronic music and metal with a style come have called djentstep, which actually works far better than you’d expect. The Algorithm will release a new single EP titled Tr0jans in early 2012, as well as a new album later on in the year! You can stream a track from the single, “Isometry,” below.
Skyharbor also began as a one-man project from Keshav Dhar under the joke moniker Hydrodjent before evolving into a project that is now seeing worldwide attention, bringing in guest artists including Daniel Tompkins (ex-Tesseract) and Marty Friedman (ex-Megadeth). This is top-notch Indian progressive metal that will likely blow minds next year when the debut album Blinding White Noise: Illusion & Chaos. Here’s an edit of the song “Celestial”, featuring the work of the aforementioned guest artists.
Exciting! We’ll have more info on these releases when they’re available!
