BEZOAR is a 3 Piece Psych Doom/Stoner/Sludge Metal Band from Brooklyn, NY, USA
The members are:
Sara Palmquist - Bass/Vocals
Tyler Villard - Guitar
Justin Sherrell - Drums
BEZOAR plays an amazing blend of Experimental Doom, Sludge, Stoner Metal with a great Psychedelic Edge. Taking influence from a whole range of bands but adding their own unique take on the genre. These guys are one of the most original bands I have heard in a long while.
They have been receiving a lot of praise for their intense live performances. Now the guys are ready to back up this fearsome reputation with their debut full length release.
BEZOAR are about to release their brilliant and outstanding new album Wyt Deth. An 8 song 48 minute masterpiece of Doom/Sludge/Stoner Metal that will shake you to the core.
All I can say about this album is wow, wow and fucking wow. This album is simply a masterpiece of Sludge/Stoner Metal. Full of crunching guitars, heavy pounding drumming and the sultry vocals of vocalist Sara.
She is one of the best vocalists I have heard in a long, long time. She just rules this record from start to finish. She has such a beautiful, haunting, hypnotic and intense voice I was hooked from my first listen.
Credit must also go to members Tyler and Justin for playing such outstanding drums and guitars. Full of heavy pounding passion that will have you begging for more.
The album starts off rather quietly with opening song “Burn Everything”. An amazing 1.54 minute acoustic folk rock track. If you think this is going to be the same style and atmosphere all the way through then think again. After this all hell breaks loose and doesn’t stop until the dying seconds.
Next track “Vitamin B” is a 5.35 minute of brilliant Sludge/Stoner Metal with a heavy pounding riff that is a total contrast from the previous brilliant song. This song is undeniably loud from start to finish that will have you head-banging in no time.
Other standout tracks include “Are We Not Alone”, “Friend Of My Enemy”, “ClockTower” and my fave track on the album the 10 minute epic “Knight”
“Knight” just rules. Full stop. This is the track which showcases the bands amazing talents to perfection. Passionate Vocals, Hard Hitting Sludge/Stoner Metal riffs and superb drumming that ends this brilliant album on a high.
The album is brilliantly produced from start to finish. All I can say is this album will definitely be on my end of 2012 best records list. It’s simply a brilliant album that will hopefully gain the band more exposure. As they definitely deserve it.
BEZOAR are one of the best underground bands that Sludge/Stoner Metal have to offer. They prove this with “Wyt Deth” that they are one of the best bands out there to discover. As this will be ranked as one of 2012’s most defining and original releases.
The album will be released on Vinyl in a limited quantity of 250 copies in March 2012 and will be on sale soon via BandCamp.
