Earlier this summer, English prog metal giants SikTh made waves in the metal community with their first full-length album in nearly eleven years. After returning from a rather lengthy hiatus in 2014, and arming themselves with a new vocalist in 2016, SikTh released The Future In Whose Eyes? on June 2nd (check out our Editor-in-Chief Landon’s review here). Now they’ve just released their second music video from the album, namely for the track “The Aura”. Watch it below!
Loaded with djenty grooves, catchy lead melodies, and atmospheric breaks, “The Aura” has all the staples of a great prog metal song. Vocalist Mikee Goodman displays a myriad of vocal techniques throughout the track. Already often rhythmically compared to Korn, his vocals frequently sound like a dead ringer to Jonathan Davis, giving fans of nu-metal something more to love about more progressive sounds here.
