Since 2004, France's very own Sideblast has been carving outtheir own unique styles of death, black, and thrash metal by utilizing power, rage, and melody in ways no one has seen before. With their upcoming 'Flight of A Moth' full length record, it is safe to say that this search has ended.
Putting a face on Sideblast's sound is not an easy task. The band draws their influences from Emperor, Strapping Young Lad, Immortal, and Behemoth, but still manages to dominate over the endless plethora of imitators through their self-critiquing use of sound bytes in their sounds and near-symphonic keyboard samples. All this coupled with the band's patented maniacally ear/shattering/yet/intelligent approach to
'Flight Of A Moth' promises, nay...demands to bring this one-of-a-kind sound to the ears of all fans of heavy music. Mastered at the Jailhouse Studios by Tommy Hansen (Helloween, Hatesphere), Sideblast is more than ever determined to reach as many people as possible and roam the surface of the earth to be finally known by all metalheads.
