LAIKA
"SOMNIA"
FILTH REGIME RECORDS

Hailing from Canada comes this amazing and highly talented  Death Metal band LAIKA.
The bands name is taken from the first Soviet dog to be sent into space. This is in no way a
reflection of the bands music though. They play a very tight, aggressive and well crafted
style of Death Metal music. They have a more modern Death Metal sound with a heavy
Progressive edge to the music. There a lot of killer hooks, riffs, breakdowns and more. The
band is a six piece and has a full explosive sound. I loved the fact that they have thrown in
some Synth all through out which really helps them stand out from the massive amounts of
bands out there now.
LAIKA's style also has some old school Death Metal influences in it
as well that reminded me of a lot of the killer bands coming out of Sweden in the late '90's
and early '00's. The vocals are done in a mid ranged kind of groggy styled Death Metal
growl with a little bit harsher Death growl mixed in.
LAIKA took a few years off in
between releases to hone their skills and it really shows on "SOMNIA". These guys are
simply amazing and absolutely one of my new favorite Death Metal bands in the scene
today. If you took elements of
CHILDREN OF BODOM, DARK TRANQUILITY, IN
FLAMES, ARCH ENEMY, SOILWORK
& HYPOCRISY and blended them all
together
LAIKA would be the end result. These guys are just as good if not better than
most of the bands mentioned above. They should be able to hold their own next to any of
these amazing bands. I have become a huge fan of these guys and can't wait to hear what
they bring next!
