Aliases debut released today

Aliases, the SiKth-esque progressive tech metallers, have released their debut album/EP, Safe From Reality, today via Basick Records.

Are you a cheap skate? Well that’s ok, you don’t even need to download a torrent and risk having swat teams blasting their way into your house within 10 minutes to arrest you on grounds of copyright infringement. Basick Records have been nice enough to stream the entire album at this location, and it’s completely legal.

Like the album? Then make sure you buy a copy and support the band and label, it’s only £6.99.


Aliases’ debut video

Aliases, the band formed partly by ex SiKth guitarist Pin, and features, wait for it, OMG – a female guitarist (how quaint), have released their debut ass kicking video for the song ‘What’s Left For Us’.

The song itself very much sounds similar in style to SiKth, and that’s not a bad thing. The video was debuted at Metalinjection.net.


Review: Basick Records sampler

Djent happens to be the ‘in’ thing right now (and I’m also getting déjà vu, because I’ve said this countless times before), and it seems that Basick Records are flying the flag for this movement, being home to a large array of Technical Metal and djent inspired artists. The label are currently offering a free sample album, which you can download for free here, so I figured I’d check it out and offer my thoughts on the download.

The sample contains 10 songs, by 10 different bands. I’ve heard of about 5 of them before, but the other half are all new to me. The download comes in a default format of MP3 at 320 kbps, so you’re getting fairly decent quality here. Make the jump for the review.


Got a few minutes?

Observant readers of DoM may notice that I kind of bum Sikth; an awesome (well, in my opinion) Math-Metal band that sadly disbanded far too early. So of course I’ve been keeping my eye on what the guys have been doing since. Guitarist Pin obviously went on to recently form a new band, known as Aliases, which are very much a similar sort of band to Sikth.

And now, vocalist Justin Hill and guitarist Dan Weller have started their own band, known as Minutes. The band have one song available via their Myspace, check it out here.

I was actually expecting another similar band, but Minutes aren’t even Metal. They’re kind of straight catchy rock from the sounds of it. Check ’em out and see what you think.


Aliases sign with Basick

Technical Math-Metallers, Aliases, a band you probably haven’t heard of (although, if you’re a regular reader of DoM, you might have seen me mention them before), have signed to Basick Records.

Formed back in April 2010, Aliases consist of ex-Sikth guitarist Pin, guitarist Leah Woodward, drummer Darren Pugh, bassist Joe Heaton and vocalist Jay Berast.

Pin made some comments, the usual PR stuff, but if you’re interested (and you should be, because I say so) check out more here.

Hopefully this also means the band will do some more promo shots, so I don’t have to keep re-using the same picture over and over again.
