Slovenian heavy metal band SkyEye was founded in 2014 by guitarist Grega Stalowsky, bassist Primož Lovšin and singer Jan Leščanec .
Unique and powerful vocals combined with raw and melodic guitar riffs give the band its signature heavy metal sound, reminescent of other major representatives of the genre, like Iron Maiden, Saxon or Judas Priest. The band made its debut appearance in June 2017, and only four months later brought out its first EP under the title „Run for Your Life”. The overwhelmingly positive response and strong support at their performances drove the SkyEye back into the studio to record their debut album DIGITAL GOD, which was released on November 9, 2018 .
