Seemingly deliberately mysterious, Northern Irish rock duo Master Distiller are very new to the music scene. They released their début EP, The Beast Within, in January of this year, and from the age of their social networking accounts, they are apparently mere babies of the music world.
However, their songs suggest that they are substantially more mature than that. From the looming, metal-esque guitar riffs in the title track, via the everlasting rhythm of “Seconds to Live” and ending with the could-have-been-a-gimmick-but-very-much-isn’t “Six Shot Serenade”, which immediately brings to mind a Western movie, this is an exceptional effort for a first EP.
This band has a distinctive style, and I like where they’re taking it. I very much look forward to future releases. Watch this space!
