Skies - Bane & Rebirth

Bane & Rebirth

Another hardcore band from the Midwest has jumped on the circling moshpit wagon. Musically and vocally, Skies brings nothing new to the table for this genre, but occasionally, breakdowns do get a tad bit interesting, as in the song “Passion”. Otherwise, the only thing that truly stands out on this debut disc is the introduction theme, which is also employed in the slower instrumental plopped in the middle, “Discord”, sort of an A1 for those into theory. The closing “Rebirth” uses a screamo vocal with extra effect, but otherwise this is a forgettable freshman disc.
