Beginning as a hardcore band the Italian gang soon drifted into both metalcore and keyboards and produced its debut album Step One with producer Riccardo Pasini. In June 2006 the band shot a video for the song Go Away. In September of 2006 the band toured the UK playing ten shows with Panic Cell, Vert, Atomic Ants, Psylence and Losing Sun. For 2008, Figure Of Six recorded Aion at Studio 73 with producer Riccardo “Paso” Pasini (Slowmotion Apocalypse, Ephel Duath) and Tue Madsen. Brand New Life and Welcome To The Freak Show featured different singers.
FIGURE OF SIX - AION - LOCOMOTIVE
Let me get this straight. Soilwork had an album in 2003 called Figure Number Five and here comes an Italian metalcore band and calls itself Figure Of Six? As if one needed help guessing right off the bat that the album sucks. The band’s debut was on Copro/Casket Records. The same label that has not issued a single worthwhile release... ever. Why would Locomotive Records sign a metalcore band is a big enough question. Why the company would work with a metalcore band with keyboards is even more perplexing. That’s right, because no one has done the formulaic clean vocal verse thing before! Figure Of Six is unoriginal, trendy and weak. Look kids, if someone wants to hear Avenged Sevenfold then he would do so. Why then would anyone want to listen to FOS (or by next year Avenged Sevenfold)?
