Lion Music are proud to introduce the signing
and debut release on the label from one of the
most original new progressive metal bands of
recent years - Day Six. Hailing from the
Netherlands, Day Six are a first class
powerful four piece who produce a mammoth
sound of great scope and depth on ‘The Grand Design’.
With a sound that combines elements from
across progressive music’s history, Day Six
with ‘The Grand Design' have come up with a
unique take on the genre which is equal parts
dark and light making great use of dynamics
and textures. Comparisons could be made
between a fusion of Pink Floyd, Rush,
Porcupine Tree, Dream Theater and Opeth where
colossal guitar riffs collide and intertwine
with synthesized textures and enthralling
vocals for a truly mesmerizing effect.
Lyrically ‘The Grand Design’ is a concept
album which focuses on an extraterrestrial
spaceship that has been found in Lake Vostok –
Antarctica. The storyline is following five
weather scientists who did this discovery and
found out about the secrecy on
Extraterrestrial contact on Earth. The elite
government finds out about the scientists -
and to prevent them from bringing out the
truth on E.T. life, they are locked in
psychiatric hospitals while agents try to
erase their experiences from their memories.
However, the scientists develop a way to
communicate telepathically with each other and
with the E.T. beings. One of the scientists is
writing a diary – the song 'A Soul's
Documentary' is about these writings. In this
way, they try to bring out the truth to the
world despite the plans of the government.
Since forming in 2002, Day Six have become a
mainstay on the live Dutch music scene and won
two major competitions in the Netherlands: the
Metal Battle and the Aardschok Metal Bash. As
a result Day Six have grown to be one of the
most well known progressive metal bands in the
Netherlands and with the worldwide release of
“The Grand Design”, Lion Music will introduce
the band to a wider audience.
“Day Six – The Grand Design” comprises of 9
tracks and clocks in at over 70 minutes and it
