SIC – Pandemonium


Published March 8, 2007

Faroese fivesome SIC never stray far away from their nu-metal/post-trash roots on debut album Pandemonium. Although they are not exactly breaking new ground for originality, it is hard to fault them, for what they do, they do well and what they lack in consistency, they make up for with energy. Influenced by bands such as genre favorites Slipknot and Meshuggah, they sound tight behind bass-driven and riff heavy string section, while singer Mikkjall, evokes memories of a young Phil Anselmo.13 tracks in all, the first two songs, Reach Inside and Done Pretending, are early highlights, while Keep it to Yourself is an easy favorite. The experimental Number 6 misses the mark completely though. SIC’s chief fault, youth, is at the same time their biggest upside. This is a highly enjoyable and strong debut, full of promise, and it will be exciting to see how they manage to build upon it. SBB
