Unsigned & Streamed: Blizzard At Sea

Posted by on August 17, 2011

Why should major label bands be the only ones who get love? Unsigned & Streamed is a new column where we stream a song from an unsigned band we at Metal Insider really dig.

This week, we’re proud to present Iowa City’s Blizzard At Sea. Having formed in early 2010, this three piece band has been making a name for themselves in Iowa’s local metal scene, performing nonstop and having opened for 3 Inches Of Blood and Skeletonwitch last April. Their debut EP Invariance, which lyrically covers topics such as mining deep underground, wormholes, memory, and the fabric of the cosmos, was released via Bandcamp for “name your own price”. The band’s progressive sludgy sound instantly reminds us of early Mastodon and Baroness. But don’t just take our word for it, check out Blizzard At Sea for yourself and give the song “Closed Universe” a listen down below.
