The Sixxis: The Sixxis (2014)
They frequently slam matters into overdrive via bristling pulses, stinging guitar parts and a fluid attack. Multi- instrumentalist Vladdy Iskhakov's stout vocal delivery is accentuated by the alternating flows and by his colleagues' electronics effects used for layered nuances and discrete enhancements. Boasting a mammoth sound with an agile gait, pieces such as the perky "Nowhere Close," are erected on upbeat straight-four vamps, crafty discourses, heightening dynamics and harmonious anthem-like hooks, abetted with streaming psychedelic guitar licks. In addition, a DVD is included, featuring the final three album tracks, which were recorded live. Hence, The Sixxis' permeate a college education of sorts into the current rock realm, when considering similar output by their peers. And they're garnering increased notoriety due to an upcoming European tour as openers for the popular throwback rock power trio, The Winery Dogs.
