Basick Records: Two New Signings

More progressive metal goodness is on the way...

Basick Records has announced the additionof two new acts to its ever expanding roster: French electro-metal producer The Algorithm and Indian progressive metal band Skyharbor
The signing of these two new acts further cements Basick's reputation as a solid choice for some of the world's most progressive and forward thinking artists.

The brainchild of talented producer Rémi Gallego, The Algorithm infuses modern metal breakdowns with a menagerie of electronic subgenres such as IDM, chiptune and breakcore to concoct his own potent style of fiercely heavy music. After a successful premiere of his live show at this years Euroblast Festival, Rémi will now be focusing on playing more shows around Europe, including a Basick showcase in London, scheduled for early next year.

The Algorithm will release a new single Tr0jans (which includes new versions of the tracks Isometry and Antikythera…) and a new, as yet untitled album via Basick in early 2012.

Starting out as a simple bedroom studio project, guitarist Keshav Dhar has seen Skyharbor quickly evolve into one of India’s hottest metal prospects, with huge admiration coming in from some of the biggest names in metal worldwide. An astonishing amount of buzz also surrounded the bands first ever performance at the Bacardi NH7 Festival in Pune, India earlier this month, where they played to over 1,000 people and were one of the weekend’s highlights.

The long awaited debut album from Skyharbor promises to be a landmark release for the Indian independent music scene, in no small part thanks to the incredible number of international guest appearances it will see, including the likes of Marty Friedman (ex Megadeth), Daniel Tompkins (ex TesseracT), Vishal J. Singh (Amogh Symphony) and Sunneith Revankar (Bhayanak Maut).

Skyharbor will release the debut album Blinding White Noise: Illusion & Chaos worldwide via Basick in early 2012.
