BiographyForget everything that has gone before. You're about to enter the utterly original dark metal vista that is Liquid Sky.
Born in 2000 and brought together by a fierce desire to whip up a musical storm, they are fast becoming Britain's best-kept secret.
Their bubbling cauldron of sounds is ignited by influences as diverse as Lacuna Coil, Paradise Lost, Dream Theater, Soilwork and All About Eve. They have a sweet tooth for a massive riff delivered with shotgun ferocity, but they also know how to knock you dead with a carefully crafted, achingly beautiful, melody.
"We wanted to create a hard and dynamic metal sound, but one with an accessible side as well" says guitarist Jonathan Craven.
Already regulars at venues like Manchester's Roadhouse, the Cavern in Liverpool, and the Hope and Anchor in Islington, they've supported bands such as Skindred and Uniting The Elements. The highlight of 2004 will be performing at the Bloodstock festival in Derby in September, alongside such luminaries as Children of Bodom, Gamma Ray and Sonata Arctica.
And more than anything else, it’s these incendiary gigs that have won them a loyal and constantly expanding army of fans. They consistently turn in live performances that radiate the kind of energy that electrifies your synapses and blisters your eardrums.
Drawing on the best rock tradition of twin guitar attack, the line up sees Jonathan Craven and Audie Lewis rolling out a decadent double crunch of guitars. Meanwhile, Den Constable relentlessly pins the bass down and Jamie Ward keeps it watertight on drums with the added bonus of some serious double-kick drum abuse.
2003 saw the arrival of new vocalist Fiona Creaby. With her searing passionate voice and a powerful stage-presence, this raven-haired siren has effortlessly bewitched a legion of fans. And with Jon occasionally backing Fiona with a guttural roar, it’s a heady vocal brew.
The most recent element added to the Liquid Sky alchemy is the prodigious young talent that is keyboard player Joe Rhodes, adding to the band's constantly evolving sound.
Riding high on the success of their debut EP “Adrenochrome”, Liquid Sky have just released a clutch of blistering new songs on their new EP “Nightfall”. As Jonathan says, "The new songs sum up where Liquid Sky is right now – a combination of melody and power; the perfect balance of light and darkness".
Drawing together all of their varied influences and adding a new twist to produce cutting-edge metal, Liquid Sky are the embodiment of the new breed of rock musicians – intense, powerful and ready to make music you’ll always remember. read less
