Featured Frontiers Music Artist: Sick N’ Beautiful – Starstruck (album)
By Dakota Horbaczek
I have been a fan of Sick N’ Beautiful for a long time. They were a featured artist for Halloween a few years back and even did a page takeover. This band comes at you with an aggressive metal sci-fi experience with a touch of horror mixed in. Not too long ago this incredible band signed with Frontiers Music srl. It’s an amazing thing to watch one of your favorite bands get the recognition they deserve. Today we celebrate their brand new album Starstruck.
As soon as Tonight We Go To War came on I thought this would be the perfect soundtrack for Resident Evil. I was ready to start killing some zombies. It has the perfect blend of electronic, metal and melodic vocals that will inspire you to take on anything. Their album’s namesake track, Starstruck, followed it up to continue building a fire in your soul. Sick N’ Beautiful have built a sci-fi epic with their music giving you an iconic sound that you can’t find anywhere else.
Defy The Light has you entering into the violence and gore of a horror movie. It hits you with a more aggressive sound than the ones that open up this album. Now that your blood is rushing its time to slow it to a more hard rock tune with Deep End Dark. It’s always nice to see that a band is capable of more than just one style. Definitely a nice addition to the album. Schadenfreude has much more electronic elements poured into it. Throughout the album so far Herma’s voice has been awe-inspiring. Her melodic style mixed with that rasp really makes her stand out among most vocalists. Which adds such depth to this album it upgrades it from good to great in my opinion.
We are nearing the albums end but Pull Of Gravity keeps us locked in to Sick N’ Beautiful’s captivating sound. The last song I want to mention is Angels Be Fallin’.
If I could travel back in time
If I could just turn back the clock
If I could bring you back I would
Just these first 3 lines hit me very hard. I’ve lost a lot of people including my brother. This song resonated deeply and I’m thankful to this band for it. This whole album is worth many listens. Sick N’ Beautiful has several new videos for this album and you should watch all of them. Go get Starstruck today!!
