Truthseeker is an instrumental rock band with a dense and atmospheric sound. Their debut EP “Weightless at Dawn” features 5 slow, cinematic tracks characterized by reverb-soaked lead guitars, huge drums, textural rhythm guitars and a thick distorted bass sound. Although there are no vocals, the artwork features poems for each of the EP’s songs with the exception of “Submerged”. There are traces of Prog-Rock, Metal, Post-Rock/Metal, Doom and Ambient music throughout the record’s 23 minutes and 8 seconds, but there is no single term that can summarize the intimate and powerful sound that lies therein. Truthseeker is quickly gaining popularity as one of Boston’s most original heavy bands.
“This first release, ‘Weightless at Dawn’, is simply an expression of both nostalgia and struggle; the nostalgia I have ofstaying up until dawn every night and the struggle to retain that kind of passion throughout life. The slow tempos and repetitions represent the longing to make a moment last; holding onto your emotional rushes as long as you can. The record is about being young at heart.”
