Vol.6 is the highly anticipated second album of Vancouver’s Seer and tells the story of a monk who belongs to a monastery built upon the tallest mountain on the planet. This monk has been chosen to make a pilgrimage to the peak of the mountain where lies the power to return their world to a golden age long past. This pilgrimage is taken once each decade, and no monk has ever returned from his journey and completed the quest. The main theme is dogma and the consequences of accepting rigid principles one must not stray from
Seer’s sound incorporates black metal and NWOBHM influences, venturing into territory occupied by groups like Judas Priest, Queensryche, Taake, Bathory, The Ruins of Beverast, and Dissection
Vol.6 consists of six tracks with the Highlight track for me being Seven Stars, Seven Stones which can be heard on the latest edition of my radio show The Boneyard
Overall an absolute solid record which has not only made me revisit 1-5 but the amount I have played it since it’s release it’s fair to say that this is going to remain in my top picks by the end of the year for sure.
4.5 out of 5 Skulls.
Vol.6 is out now on Artoffact Records.
