Artist News: Day Six Sign To Lion Music

Posted on Friday, May 07 @ 21:00:00 UTC by nightowl

Lion Music are delighted to have signed Dutch progressive rock/metal band Day Six to the label's roster for their new album The Grand Design.

Since forming in 2002, Day Six have become a mainstay on the live Dutch music scene and won two major competitions in the Netherlands: the Metal Battle and the Aardschok Metal Bash. As a result Day Six have grown to be one of the most well known progressive metal bands in the Netherlands and with the worldwide release of The Grand Design, Lion Music aim to introduce the band to a wider audience.

With a sound that combines elements from across progressive music?s history, the band have come up with a unique take on the genre which is equal parts dark and light making great use of dynamics and textures. Comparisons could be made between a fusion of Pink Floyd, Rush and Opeth where colossal guitar riffs collide and intertwine with synthesized textures for a truly mesmerizing effect.

The band's live show is also winning rave reviews with the four piece of Robbie van Stiphout (Guitars/Vocals), Nick Verstappen (Bass), Dolf van Heugten (Synthesizers) and Daan Liebregts (Drums) wowing audiences with their spectacular live show.

Day Six ? The Grand Design comprises of 9 tracks and clocks in at over 70 minutes and it set for release on Lion Music on June 18th 2010. A preview sampler of the album can be heard at the bands official websites www.day-six.com and myspace.com/daysixweb.

Full album information to follow soon.
