Sickret is a promising modern nu-metal band I discovered about two weeks ago with their latest single, “Fatlip“, released on September 3, 2021. In case you haven’t heard of Sickret before, these Swiss gentlemen have started their careers with a long-play album called, Pointless Appendix in 2013. Since then, they have released two more long-play albums, Hypocritical (2016) and Trapped Behind Golden Bars (2018), and six singles, Pressure (2018), So Sick (2018), Time for Change (2020), Worship (2021), Tripping Hard (2021), and Fatlip (2021). Now, please give the album a listen while reading the rest of the article.
As I mentioned above, Sickret is an established band with impressive discography. You can easily sense that these guys are quite experienced, know exactly what they are doing. Although I don’t listen to nu or rap metal myself, I couldn’t resist the energy in their music and feature them here on Metalhead Community Magazine. I am sure I won’t be the only one who thinks that way after listening to their music only once.
The band has a valid music blend that metalheads love hearing. It’s like a well-thought project with successful pieces from pioneer bands of their genre. First of all, the energy is fantastic. With no hesitation, seeing Sickret should be quite impressive on any stage, doesn’t matter big or small. They give us this message in the structure, as well as the music video of Fatlip.
On the other hand, the origins in their music varies, but made me think of the 2000s nu-metal scene mostly. The frontman of Sickret has the necessary image, and the potential to lead this band to the biggest scene possible. His musical personality has influences mostly from Fred Drust of Limp Bizkit, along with Eminem, and from some other punk rock bands such as Blink 182.
The song catches the full attention of the listener with its energy at first. The groove is fantastic, the structure was built properly with commercial hit potential, as well as for the live performances. I admire bands who are strong both with their records and also live on stage. In this case, Sickret is powerful on both sides, already on their way to the next level in their careers.
