About IntrospectionIt all started with two brothers just wanting to learn how to play guitar in Union City, New Jersey. Guitarists/vocalists Setjared and his younger brother Kevin soon started writing together and had such chemistry that that writing would soon become Sycarian. Based in Hudson County, just across Hudson River from NYC, Sycarian is an independent Metal band that doesn’t stick to one genre and just writes what they want.
The idea was to not be categorized as a specific sub-genre but to just create Metal music for all tastes, but at the end of the day the music is exactly what they want it to be. Image catchy guitar riffs with a bit of ambience, groove and blast beats. The sky is the limit and they also incorporate psychedelic prog rock elements in there too. With the many influence of all band members such as Gojira, Tesseract, The Black Dahlia Murder, The Contortionist, Trivium, Porcupine Tree you really never know what you are going to get but why not listen for yourself? Sycarian recently released an EP entitled “Introspection” which consists of six songs that is available through iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, and more.
This EP is what really makes this band worth a listen, it takes you to different places and is full of emotion and the EP title resembles self-reflection and human behavior. The songs on this project cover topics from abandonment to loosing a friend to what happens after death. It really has lots of twists and turns and every song sets a different mood for the lyrics and topics of the songs.
