Firing at the Sky is a harder edged rock band with groove/metal leanings but pop melodies.
Their new self-titled album, released August 31, 2016, has quickly gained attention from both industry and fans alike.
Recipients of Rawlco Radio’s Project 10K20 funding and a Creative Saskatchewan Commercial Sound Recording Grant, their track “The Purpose” is receiving airplay on local radio stations, including Saskatoon’s Rock 102 (Rawlco Radio) & Reginas 104.9 The Wolf", and has been included on the SaskMusic Compilation “InTune 2016.”
“We are extremely proud and honored to be part of this selection of fine Saskatchewan music and for the opportunity to have our music promoted and distributed to Canadian and International media and industry professionals.”
Holed up in rural Saskatchewan, not by choice but by sheer resistance to the grid and all its evils, former Morally Sound frontman Kris Klyne, Brad Heck with his brand of drive and percussive flare, Rich Strelioff (Lead guitar, Beard of Doom) and Nathan Saggs (Bass, flair for the dramatic) tap into instinct, presence and experience to deliver a strong, hard hitting but reflective record that does not let up through all 10 songs.
Recorded with Ryan Andersen at Red Door Recording (Saskatoon) and mastered by Justin Bender (Into Eternity, Third Ion), Firing At The Sky is destiny, soul and spirit wrapped in a tortilla shell then deep fried and placed inside a pita which is filled with melody, passion, love and sage wisdom then put in a hollowed out French loaf and baked at 385F until crisp.
It has hook. It has drive. And, it has heart. A blend of catchy, thoughtful and head bobbing rock with a metal edge. Pounding beats, soulful harmonies and interesting guitar melodies that weave and intersect to tell a story.
With their succulent live show and stunning visual video pairing, the band’s sound to sight is sure to take the listener across a journey of emotions.
Get ready, as it’s time for some Firing At The Sky!
Kris Klyne’s musical styling’s started in 1992 with the progressive dark metal band Aggressive Evil. The band’s debut release earned 4 out of 5 stars in a review by the nationwide publication M.E.A.T Magazine. An impressive feat for a teen recording music in his parents’ basement.
