Seeker – Unloved.


As time has gone on, I’d been starting to think death metal would have nothing exciting to offer when it came to new bands. But this all changed two weeks ago when I first discovered  Seeker; a four-piece who clearly have endless amounts of energy and anger that will never stop as long as they have instruments and a microphone in front of them.

Their album Unloved does not waste any time in launching a full scale assault on its listeners’ ears. After a small amount of feedback, which almost seems like a warning for the destruction coming up, they explode into action quick sticks. From the first track, Alone, demonstrating vocalist Bryce Lucien’s anger straight up, there is no easing up or watering down of the genre throughout the whole album. Infused with purely evil riffs (particularly that of the title track Unloved), and breakdowns that will register a reading on the metaphorical rictor scale, this brutal and relentless recording from these ball-tearing musicians is fairly straight-forward, without a great deal of surprises, but the album is still incredibly listenable and does not get boring at any stage.

Seeker are a relatively new death metal band hailing from the American state of Texas. These guys are certainly here to chew you up and spit you out with their unforgiving, destructive music. The band consists of raw gut-wrenching screaming talent from Bryce Lucien, brutal spine-chilling riffs from guitarist Justin Edgerton, earth-moving bass from Chris Keasler and obliterating drums bashed out by Dustin Weaver. These boys are going to to be on a path of destruction with upcoming tours that will leave their audiences bruised and battered, with their jaws on the floor.

Unloved, released on the 29th of October 2013, is the first full-length album from the band, following their E.P. released in 2012. The album certainly does not take a step back when coming forward. From the moment the album storms into your earholes, the only break from the brutality is the short gap between tracks.  Although the band falls under the umbrella of death metal there are definite prominent signs of math throughout the album. Unloved is everything you would hope to expect from from a death metal band’s first produced album.

I'm from the city of Newcastle in Australia. My main passions/drives are music, food and beverage. Combining all if I can. My obsession with music first reared its prominent head when i was in yr 8 and started to learn how to play the drums. There was not, and still isn't many styles of music I listen to. Anything Justin Timberlake to Metallica to Knife Party to Robert Palmer to The Dillinger Escape Plan, to Avenged Sevenfold. That is just to give you an idea of how messed up it is. When I was about 20 yrs. old I was asked to front a band as they band suspected I might possess a good amount of stage presence. The band & I grew frustrated at the lack of shows and chances for bands to play in the area. I then decided I would make an attempt at running a show my self. I soon met a young lady Morgan who came on board and assisted to me to run some all ages shows which were a massive success in there area. Those days are all over now. To further contribute to music industry I know write for the Sonic Sensory. I'm proud to be apart of it, and to be still promoting music.
