I can´t say it happens too often that you get to hear a different hard rock album but the Atlanta based The SixxiS truly took me by surprise with their debut album "Hollow shrine".
With smart riffs, classy vocal harmonies and prog-ish hard rock, The SixxiS feels like card dealers with aces up their sleeves where we get everything from groovy Led Zep-rock to the alternative sound of King´s X and even Alex Lifeson´s solo album "Victor".
I really like this band a lot and I just love songs like "Forgotten son", "Waste of time", "Dreamers" and the awesome instrumental "Coke Can Steve".
