CJSR 88.5 FM has teamed up with Edmonton, AB hardcore metal band Lucid Skies for a track by track of their forthcoming EP ‘Hounds’ set for release on November 26th, which will be supported by a Western Canadian tour w/ Bonfire.
The track by track can be heard at the following link stream below.
‘Hounds’, is a four track EP fusing classic hardcore with infectious melodies, that the band demonstrates in their on stage aggression and banter, which they invite the crowd to become a part of.
Their enticing vocals combined with melodic riffs allude to metal godfathers; Hatebreed (lyrically, vocally, and melodically) while sticking to their hardcore influences (Comeback Kid, Holly Springs Disaster). Instrumentally, Lucid Skies draws from d-beats, breakbeats, and breakdowns. Their EP ‘Hounds’ is peppered with chugging bass lines and complimented by rhythmic guitar arrangements.
Their origin of Lucid Skies is simple: Jesse Berger kick-started the process for collecting members and establishing a sound for the band in Edmonton in 2009. Soon after, Berger recruited Nick Ogden to enhance the overall aggression and build their signature sound. Many of the members would frequent Avenue Theatre (formerly Avenue Skatepark) and attend local and touring hardcore and metalcore shows. It seemed it was only a matter of time before Sam Jackson (Bass), was bullied by the band to join, and soon followed after by Justin Smith (drums) as the final member for Lucid Skies.
