From Santa Cruz, CA with a sound somewhat similiar to Black Label Society and taking influences from Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Pantera, Judas Priest, and Ozzy Osbourne comes Archer. This three man band consisting of Guitarist/Vocalist Dylan, bassist Isiah, and Duke T on drums have a huge sound for a trio. A blend of the best in past and present styles, brought to life seething with pure energy. On their album “Doomsday Profits” all of those influences shine through on such songs as “the Man Who Knows All”, “Pride Before The Fall”, “Brewtality” and “Van Salem”.
Archer won “Best Local Band 2008” in the Metro Santa Cruz Goldies Awards, and played in the 2008 Sweden Rock Festival. The guys have played with everyone from Heart and Blue Oyster Cult to Heaven & Hell and Testament. Archer is scheduled to be a part of Black Label Society’s “Black Label Bash” with BLS & Dope when it hits the Pacific Northwest and Canada in March.
