Blind Scryer are from Louisville, Kentucky and they are soon to deliver their self-titled debut on March 29. It will be available for preorder on Bandcamp. They formed in 2016 and has shared the stage with Weedeater, The Obsessed, TOKE and Lucifer among others. Their sound is an amalgamation of traditional doom, stoner, hard rock that is reminiscent of a 70s style with some really bluesy riffs. 

This album is all about the guitars, and holy mother do they deliver! Twisting and rocking multi-part riffs are churned out one after another like it’s no work at all and all of them are vital and vibrant. When compositions go for a climax, Blind Scryer make use of their dual guitar setup well, one axe prolonging the momentum in the riffs while the other spins up crazy solos into a torrent of monumental music. The riffs are kept fresh by the frequent tonal variations, with plentiful bent notes and to give the music a classic and beloved 70s feel. The chunky bass helps, too, frequently supplementing the riffs or even adopting them during quieter sections, taking the spotlight until the six-strings roar back to life. The vocals also bring a lot of color to the compositions and lend emotional gravity to the songs.

My choice picks were “Ride the Sun,” “Blind Scryer,” and “Delta V.” A dozen spins in, I’ve yet to grow bored of it.
