FyreSky were founded in late 2015. They immediately got to work creating their own original gothic tinged rock anthems.  After a very productive first few months they hit the live scene in Spring of 2016 as well as releasing their debut EP ‘The Circle’. Whilst continuing to build momentum into 2017 FyreSky competed in, and won, the Essex ‘Undiscovered Live Music Project’ and released 2 more singles ‘StarChaser’ and ‘Carpe Noctem.  2017 was a busy year of gigging and starting to bring their high-energy live performance to further a field in the UK.

They performed at Southend’s open air festival ‘Village Green’ and opened the main-stage setting a high standard for the day. Summer 2017 FyreSky also started to put their stamp on the ‘female rock/metal’ community when they were the first ever male-fronted band to be invited to play ‘The Dames of Darkness Festival’ After an incredible show and a sell out on merch and CDs their performance at this event led them to be invited to play more festivals in 2018 ‘Quinphonic Festival and Aonia Fest II.

    Owner/Editor/Writer/YouTuber - Heavy Metal and reading, two things I have always loved so they are the two areas you will find most of my reviews. Post apocalyptic is my jam and I always have a book on the go and have for decades now. From a metal perspective, age has softened my inadequacies and I now operate with an open mind, loving many bands from many sub genres but having a particular admiration for the UK underground scene. In my other time, when not focused on Dad duties and work, I try to support the craft beer movement by drinking as much of it as I can and you will also find me out on the streets, walking. I love walking, I love exploring new places and snapping nature photos as I go.
