It’s been a long, nine year wait but we’ve finally got a new SikTh song to enjoy. It’s a testament to just how pioneering SikTh were back in the day that Philistine Philosophies doesn’t sound too dissimilar to where they left off with Dawn of a Dead Day, yet this track’s sound is still fresh and relevant nine years on. No matter how much time passes, the bipolar narrative of Mikee Goodman, the beautifully melodic vocals of Justin Hill and the insanely technical musicianship never gets old.

The new EP Opacities is out of December 4th and it’ll be a long wait now that I’ve heard this!
