Countless Skies’ Ross King: What I’m Listening ToSaturday, 23rd July 2016
After a recent chat with Countless Skies guitarist/vocalist Ross King, we approached him to share with us what he has been listening to as of late, check it out below.
Listen: The Garden of Fire
Whispered – Japanese influenced melodic death metal from Finland. Complex and dynamic song writing, thrashy and powerful riffs, but full of character. To top it off they even include traditional Japanese instruments.
FFO: Samurai’s, dragons, and blazing guitar solos.
Listen: Sakura Omen
Listen: The Revenant
Katatonia – I wasn’t sure about their latest release at first, but after a few spins The Fall of Hearts is quickly becoming one of my favourite releases this year. More prog, this time with a gothic touch.
FFO: The last few Katatonia albums
Listen: Old Hearts Fall
Haken – It’s like listening to old school prog rock with 8 string guitars. Their latest album Affinity is one of my contenders for album of the year. And yes, there’s keyboard solos!
FFO: Dream Theater
Listen: Morientum Terra
