My Headbangers welcome from Glasgow, Scotland the old school Metal Band: Syth
I want to jump right into a song, I’ve listened to all of them so instead of the usual 3, I have to put 4 this week. Yeah seriously these guys are that good, I love the way some of the songs start out sounding like they could be the opening music for Return of the King, Lord of the Rings. But hey you know what I always say what speaks to me may not speak to you, but these guys do, they heat the blood my bangers.
I love this song: “The Liar’s Eyes”
Let’s meet the band:
Left to right: Allen, Barry, Niall, Mark
The idea of Syth was first formed in 1999, but it wasn’t until 2001 that the members got into a studio and played together. As it is with a lot of bands there are professional and personal differences, and breakups eventually happen.
Syth reformed again in 2015, with former guitarist Alan Stares as bassist and Dave Bisset taking over as lead vocalist in 2016. A third album, comprised mostly of songs composed before the second split and intended as a final statement from the band, was recorded on and off from 2016 and finally released in December 2018.
Syth went through a few breakups but are now a cohesive unit and I was told they will be gigging again after one member recovers from surgery. I was happy to hear that because they are to good to split. In the mean time I have picked a few songs that I love. Listen and I think you’ll agree there is fire here….
“Where Valkyries Cry”
“Demons of the Kirk”
Well Headbangers that’s it for this week. Join me next week for another band and another song. And as I always say don’t stand to close to the fire if you can’t handle the burn….
