Cikada is a five piece band from New Orleans, Louisiana who formed in 2015, from the looks of things. Cikada play a killer style of music that incorporates elements of metal, doom, and sludge within their sound.  Musically, Cikada can be loosely compared to bands such as Thou, Buzzoven, Eyehategod, Chained To The Bottom Of The Ocean, and other like-minded bands.  Since forming in 2015, Cikada have released a digital single titled Nimbus in August of 2016.  Lamplighter is the band's debut LP, which was released via Strange Daisy records on October 31st, 2019.  On Lamplighter, Cikada offer up six tracks of ugly and brutal as fuck sounding metal, doom, and sludge.  Overall, Lamplighter makes for an awesome listen and definitely should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
