30102014 - Blood Warrior "Blood Warrior"

When you discover a band called Blood Warrior you want to check them out, that's just the way it is. And when the band includes the vocalist from O'Death you want to really listen! The first song here takes you to the gentle country where Bonnie "Prince" Billy and other new folkies live, and on the second track, the 8 1/2 minute long "Choir" they run the whole gamut from soft alt folk to Southern Gothic Gospel, namechecking Townes Van Zandt and interpolating Bob Dylan in the process! We get some weird folk, some traditional American music, chants, organs and lots of other goodness. "Snake Seer" sounds like a drinking song, while other tracks make you feel like meditating in the woods at night. This album makes it through without any big airs and graces, but leaves a permanent mark!
