Biography

New Delhi, India (2010 – present)

Skyharbor is a / band formed in New Delhi, India that started out as a simple bedroom studio project by guitarist Keshav Dhar. The band received a lot of buzz surrounding the band’s first ever performance at the Bacardi NH7 Festival in Pune, India, where they played to over 1,000 people and were one of the weekend’s highlights. They released their debut album, Blinding White Noise : Illusion and Chaos, in 2012, featuring Dan Tompkins (ex-TesseracT) as a guest vocalist on the majority of the tracks, and a number of other guests throughout including Marty Friedmen (ex-Megadeth) and more. Subsequently, Dan Tompkins joined the band as permanent vocalist, and Nikhil Rufus parted ways with the project. He was replaced by Goddess Gagged bassist Krishna Mirpuri. In June 2015, due to scheduling conflicts with his other associated act Intervals, drummer Anup Sastry amicably quit the band, being replaced by Indian talent Aditya Ashok, who was the drummer for OX7GEN.

The name Skyharbor is somewhat of a tribute to two of Keshav’s favourite artists — Cloudkicker and Oceansize.

    back after several months. it doesn't feel as djenty as skyharbor did before and yet i get the impression that they weren't focefully trying to get into the 'label'. more like they went with the flow. more soft parts, which is not necessarily bad. quite the contrary - it's awesome. however. as much as i hate admiting this - my passion for this album was temporal. nevertheless, this release is worth buying.

    Patience is gorgeous. Allure is a great moving track. Decent album with some standout songs.

    Heard a few tracks like New Devil recently...this is actually pretty good. I just had to alter my expectations a bit, it's more subtle than the big dynamics on the first album. It's definitely not djent anymore, but I think we can all agree that the tone is becoming pretty overdone. I can understand why they shifted direction. Hit/miss, but it's good experimentation...predicting that it'll be a transition album of sorts.

    Allure, Evolution, Patience standout.. Last three songs are great as well. I do agree with you guys when you say there's something wrong. I give the blame to variety - the album hardly changes - it sounds great and it's played wonderfully - the musicianship and the quality is there, but too much of a good thing sometimes it's bad. I guess this is the case.

    v - you're right, and most of the songs suck anyways... WMBB was way better. Plus I never got the copy I pledged for lol. maybe, just maybe I'll appreciate it more when I get my CD. the digital copy they sent me has some annoying clicks, and don't merge together.

    I think the main problem with Guiding Lights is, that, although this genre they are in (djent/modern prog) was mostly listened by teenagers for couple of years, Guiding Lights is an album that is directed to old farts like me nearing their 30s'. You can feel the Tompkins influence on this one - overall - this is old men progressive rock n roll - full of thoughts, reconsiderations, thinking about life - change of direction from BWN. I love it thou.

    Blinding White Noise clearly better for me than Guiding Lights. Though Guiding Lights has its moments too. Allure and Evolution are sick! I like this album, but its a bit too "soft" for me.

    Guiding Lights album is a 10/10 a magical masterpiece.

    more like dan tompkins & band. obvious difference to the last album, where the music was already finished before the vocals were added. so if you don't go in expecting more of that, you'll be fine. that said, i would have prefered a bit more skyharbor in "guiding lights".

    Yeah getting kind of sick of all the forced spoken word samples in all these prog metal releases. It is done WAY better in the end section of Guiding Light and middle part of Kaikoma though! Really drags you in the ambience.

    The stuff I've heard from the new album seem like they went overly ambient...Uneven Structure comes to mind. I'll get around to Guiding Lights after breaking in Bloodstone & Diamonds, though.
