Their sound takes a modern approach to classic heavy metal, with self-proclaimed “stadium-filling” choruses and blistering dual guitar melodies split between axemen Jamie Jordan and George Turner.
Traces of bands such as Bullet For My Valentine, Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold and Trivium can be heard in their music, peppered throughout their debut album “No Place Like Home“; creating a hard-hitting, melodic and raucous record.
The journey began when Jamie met drummer Adam Jones whilst both were members of youth orchestras in Manchester, an influence that’s remained a part of the band’s sound, with several of their songs having extended orchestral sections. The bands line up then became complete after meeting bass player Dan Woodhead while at university, with all four members now being music graduates.
Skies Turn Black’s first single “Life Goes On” was released in 2016, and the band were praised for bringing a “refreshing take on the genre“, with this song receiving radio play on Kerrang Radio and many UK radio stations. After touring up and down the UK following the release of their self-titled debut EP, Skies Turn Black took a hiatus from regular gigging to work on their first full length album, “No Place Like Home“. Now back with a new album in tow, Skies Turn Black are ready to take their fierce sound to the masses.
