Album Review

Good evening headbanging community! Quite some time ago I read about this Slovenian band from Ljubljana called SKYEYE, read they are compared to IRON MAIDEN a lot and decided I want to check this out someday... Well today is the day! SKYEYE is a young band that was formed in 2014 by Guitarist Grega Stalowsky, bassist Primož Lovšin and singer Jan Leščanec. SKYEYE got its current line-up in 2016 when guitarist Marko Kavčnik and drummer Jurij Nograšek joined the band. ‘Digital God’ is the band’s first full length output and with a full playtime of about 67:19 this is really an LP that deserves the name. Sure, if you listen to this 5-piece you understand why people compare them to IRON MAIDEN: the songs are lengthy, complex and with a truckload of lyrics and last but not least vocalist Jan has a voice that more than once reminds you of Mr Dickinson’s epic pipes.

Instrumentally the analogy to Steve Harris’ boys is understandable too, ok SKYEYE lacks a third guitarist but the musical narrative, artistic talent and overall atmosphere is quite similar to the British metal gods. But wait, wait, wait! This is no mere worshipping of the most well-known NWOBHM band no! SKYEYE have their own identity and Jan just shares the high notes with Bruce, aside from that he has a distinctive and powerful voice that fits perfect into the complex patterns provided by the tough-as-nails six-string-commando and the dynamic rhythm duo consisting of drums and bass. If you love IRON MAIDEN you will fall for SKYEYE but you will also find their very own musical imprint as interesting as the similarities to the big name.
