I’m a huge Scott von Ryper fan. Well, that’s not entirely true; I’m a huge fan of his work as part of the duo, The Black Ryder…so technically, I’m a SvR fan, right? This past week he just dropped Dream State Treasure, his debut solo record, so I wanted to hip you to a little bit of the tunes that are in store here. Listening through this track below and you’ll get the gist of von Ryper’s work; there’s a perfect balance between heavy riffs that crest/crash upon your ears and a nice melodic howl that seems to be adhere to just a bit of personal conflict. I chose this tune below because it feels huge, while also feeling like its fucking really gritty, which is what I feel is a great representation of what Scott brings to the table on his record. Give a listen.
