Seer – Vol. 6 Review

Seer – Vol. 6 Review

“Trve followers may notice that this is the third review for Vancouver’s unheralded Seer at this site. Vol. 1 & 2 opened 2016 with a whimper which at least betrayed some potential for proper impact, and said impact was felt with 2017’s Vol. III & IV. 2019 has arrived and with it comes a rejection of Roman numerals and a reversion to integers in Vol. 6. ‘But wait!’ I hear you cry; ‘What happened to Vol. 5?’ The honest reason that I didn’t cover it was partly that we didn’t receive the promo but principally that I didn’t have much inclination to buy and review a record simply to say that it’s average. You may consequently note that my views on Seer are reasonably varied. What, then, is the verdict for this release?” _Insert joke about being able to see the future here._ (Wait, is that the joke or should we insert one?)

Seer – Vol. III & IV: Cult of the Void Review

“Vancouver’s Seer entered my life at the start of 2016 with their consolidated release of 2 EPs: Vol. 1 & 2. It was a charming, if heavily flawed, release which showed glimmers of talent. Vol. III & IV: Cult of the Void represents the speedily recorded and released sequel, still dominated by stoner riffs and heavy atmosphere. I made some substantial criticisms of the former and as such began my time with the latter intrigued to hear if these had been addressed; I must confess that my expectations weren’t set too high.” Cult bait or cut bait?

Seer – Vol. 1 & 2 Review

Seer – Vol. 1 & 2 Review

“Consolidating an existing 2015 EP with new material, Vol. 1 & 2 is the debut full-length from Vancouver’s Seer, drawing on the likes of Kyuss in molding their heavy, riffy stoner doom sound. There’s a charming, rustic aesthetic to the music, and their dedication to simplicity is admirable—but this is far from a perfect record.” Well, El Cuervo certainly can’t be accused of burying the lede…
