10th Anniversary Edition of SikTh's Most Popular Record!
Death Of A Dead Day, arguably the band's most popular album, was recorded over a six week period in Miami, Florda in 2005 and was self-produced. Mixing and engineering duties were handled by Mike LaPlant (Skindred, Nonpoint, Soil, Dashboard Confessional). It would be the band's last release until returning almost a decade later with the 2015 mini-album Opacities.
Opening track "Bland Street Bloom" is a brutal progressive thrash song with vocalist Mikee W Goodman penning lyrics inspired by the gentrification of the UK high street. The song also spawned an animated video (directed by Tim Fox) which featured regularly on MTV's Headbangers ball in the US and was also heavily played in the UK. SikTh played their largest headline tour to date in support of DOADD with "Bland Street Bloom" becoming the band's opening live track for years to come. Their appearance at 2006's Download Festival became legendary - the second stage tent was closed due to over capacity as the band put on a show that to this day defines their live reputation.
In the years that followed SikTh's name and influence was kept alive by bands like Protest The Hero, Periphery, TesseracT and Animals As Leaders. The genre known as 'djent' flourished, with many stalwarts of the scene - including Meshuggah - citing that SikTh gave birth to the movement. 180g heavyweight double black vinyl edition in gatefold sleeve with printed lyrics (and original cover artwork by Tim Fox).
