In Orbit = Digipack = (CD)
Who are Skylake? Skylake is a progressive rock band founded by students in the Netherlands. They have undergone several lineup changes since their classic-prog-cover-band beginnings, and now consist of vocalist and harpist Suzan Van Den Engel, guitarist and vocalist Bart Laan, bassist Charlie Feld, and drummer Arjan Laan. (Bart and Arjan are, incidentally, the sons of Erik Laan of the band Silhouette.) Their predominant sound, in my opinion, is Porcupine Tree, although they are not nearly so melancholy. I also hear traces of Neil Peart in Arjan's skins and Steve Hackett and Trevor Rabin in Bart's soloing. The music is very melodic and riff-based, and every song is instantly hummable. Add in Charlie's solid bass grooves (Greg Lake and Colin Edwin come to mind) and Suzan's powerful soprano voice and atmospheric harp, and you have a solid modern rock/metal sound. In Orbit is their first album, and it's as mature a debut as I've heard in recent memory.
