GET STARTSTRUCK WITH SICK N' BEAUTIFUL
Sick N’ Beautiful is a band out of Italy. Their new album Starstruck is being released by Frontiers Music, also from Italy. Frontiers is best known for releasing bands whose heyday was the 80s or heavily influenced by that decade’s music.
This is why releasing this album is a pretty big deal for Frontiers. It is a big chance to take.
Sick N’ Beautiful are closer to a band like Marilyn Manson, In This Moment, or Rob Zombie than anything else on Frontiers. The closest thing to the band on the label is Edge Of Paradise who also dips their toes into industrial metal. Both bands are great, and really stick out when looking at the label’s roster. Credit to them for releasing Starstruck, and trying things that don’t fit with what they’re known usually for.
The band immediately grasps you due to their imagery. But, their music also does a good job of hooking you. Starstruck is a really good listen from beginning to end. Especially, if you’re into any of the bands I listed above.
Much like most of the bands that play industrial metal, originality isn’t a strong suit, but entertainment is. Starstruck entertains me, from the album’s first note. Plenty of big thick riffs, catchy melodies, choruses, and all of the other accouterments you would expect from a band that is offering up this brand of metal.
Give the album a shot if you’re looking for something different, new, or think it will slot in nicely in your Manson, Zombie, or In This Moment (among others) playlist.
Here is Sick N' Beautiful with the title track off of their latest album Starstruck.
