LUCID SKIES picture
Lucid Skies is a Canadian hardcore/crossover band who incorporate elements from thrash metal, groove metal, and metalcore into their style.

Fusing classic hardcore with infectious melodies, Edmonton’s own Lucid Skies bring aggression and stage banter that invites the crowd to become a part of the performance. Since their 2009 formation they have shared the stage with Fall City Fall, Blind Witness, Fall In Archaea, and Breaking Fourth Wall.

Aggressive 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. The album is peppered with chugging bass lines and complimented by rhythmic guitar arrangements (Berger).

Their origin story is simple: Jesse Berger kick-started the process for collecting members and establishing a sound for Lucid Skies in Edmonton in 2009. Soon after, Berger recruited Nick Ogden to enhance the overall

Genre: metallic hardcore

Hailing from the Canadian underground, Lucid Skies is a promising metallic hardcore band from Edmonton. With an EP under their belt already, in the form of "Grudge Match" fom 2012, they are now ready to unleash their sophomore EP, "Hounds", upon the unexpecting world.

We are dealing with a four-track EP which showcases Lucid Skies' unique take on the intersection between hardcore and metal. While they do draw a bit on metalcore, the Canadians' go far beyond the confinements of formulaic metalcore. Each track is richly nuanced, and the EP features both thrashy aggression and hardcore gang vocals as well as brutal grooves and layered melodies. In particular, 'With Eyes' with its combination of grooves and melodeath elements and 'Count Me Out' with its experimental bass-drive, jungle beats, and punky feel are quite outstanding tracks which reveals loads of talent.

The production is quite good, as is the overall musicianship. My only beef with the EP is that the angrily yelled vocals quickly become old hat. Still, I understand that the are part of the overall sound of Lucid skies and the genres they draw on.

In all "Hounds" is a successful EP, showcases the chops of a very promising metallic hardcore band. This is definitely a welcome and refreshing alternative to the increasingly formulaic and watered down metalcore scene.
