SOLSIKK, the new U.K.-based metal band featuring former BIOMECHANICAL members Chris Webb (guitar) and Matt C. (drums), has uploaded some of its new material to the group's MySpace page.
Commented Matt: "Speaking from a personal perspective, it's really been a great, fun and rewarding process working, playing and recording with new (and old) bandmates, and more importantly, has helped re-affirm a lot of the passion previous efforts seemed to have depleted and undermined over the years.
"Having spent the last year and a half writing new songs, I can honestly say that we are all extremely happy with what we have put together. It has all been a very natural, organic and enjoyable affair, devoid of tension or subject to any precious egocentricities, and mostly fuelled by cheap imitation energy drinks, cold Ginster's, 'Happy shopper' chilli snacks, the occasional few litres of Russian inspiration and jokes at either mine or Vykki's [vocals] expense!
"We've done eight tracks in total so far, and while we'd love to give you the lot, you'd have no reason to pick up an EP or check out these other stonkers at one
of our forthcoming live shows now, would you?
"Recording seemed to take no time at all, and while I am sure Chris (who produced it) can testify to the contrary, in realistic terms, the tracks flowed beautifully and we were all amazed at how quickly everyones parts were laid; which I can only put down to the feeling everyone put into this. We hope you spot it too!
"So, metal, rock, pop, pop-metal, pop-rock, rocky-metal, heavy rock, soft metal… whatever hook you want to hang it on….here it is."
SOLSIKK was formed in 2006 by Webb and Vykki Turner. After growing up together, and both being part of various different projects over the years, they decided to combine their wide spectrum of musical genres to create a fusion of Chris's rock/metal influences, with Vykki's powerful, versatile, melodic vocals.
