Premiere: High Reeper – “Die Slow”

High Reeper - High Reeper

Staking claim to the Philly/Delaware corner of stoner rock is the five piece known as High Reeper and they have set November 3 for their independently released self titled debut.

The power of the riff definitely compels this band as they bend and mold each one with an unfettered ease generally reserved for the more seasoned vets. But on top of that they keep a mean groove throughout and the vocals remind of early Ozzy so there’s that, and it doesn’t hurt a bit. Today we have a premiere of lead off track “Die Slow” and it’s all of the above and much more so dive in to take a listen.
