S Y K _ REVIEW BY RUMORE MAG (IT)
SYK is a brand new project founded by Stefano Ferrian and Federico De Bernardi, ex .psychofagist. members.
Along the years they toured all over Europe, Russia, Asia and Israel with .psychofagist. and personal projects as well and played at international festivals in the likes of Obscene Extreme (2004/2010 – Czech Republic), Incubate Fest (Holland), Theses Fest (Siberia) etc. Among others they collaborated with worldwide renowed artists like Ken Vandermark, Xabier Iriondo, Eraldo Bernocchi, Luca T Mai and many others.
They met Dalila Kayros on the last .psychofagist. European Tour on October 2013 while she was touring with them as support act and decided to join forces to do a brand new project together.
At that time Dalila was busy touring Europe and Italy to support her last release “Nuhk”, out through dEN Records, which is still getting great feedbacks all over the world for her outstanding vocal skills and an original composing attitude.
SYK are strongly inspired by the ‘70s progressive rock, Rock In Opposition movement, ’90s death metal scene, mathcore, metal and djent. The music is made out of a strong polyrhythm concept and definitely multi-layered trying to merge different kind of styles and genres.
Vocals are based on different languages as English, Sumerian and invented phonemes by Dalila Kayros strong of a continuous research in terms of phonetics and unique vocal timbres.
Dalila Kayros: vox/synths
Stefano Ferrian: guitars
Federico De Bernardi Di Valserra: drums
