Saint Blasphemer - Simon Templar

Saint Blasphemer is a unique band because much of the music on its Simon Templar EP "express frustration of seeing friends and family members struggle with addictions," according to the group's bio. The act is from Orange County, California, a region where most people - at least on the surface - are living the good life. But we all know life can be quite different underneath the surface.

The music is urgent, hard rock, which hearkens back to vintage 90s alternative rock. Thomas Monroe is the band's singer, and in many places - especially this EP's title track - he sounds like Peter Murphy of Bauhaus. The group flexes its musical muscles with the hard rocking "Scarecrow," which is driven by some crunchy hard rock guitar chords. You can hear Dave (Janes Addiction) Navarro's influence on guitarist John Castellon during the latter track's guitar solo.

Simon Templar may remind you of alternative rock's recent past. However, it brings back these memories in all the best ways. Get it here
