Black Belt Eagle Scout - "My Blood Runs Through This Land"

"My Blood Runs Through This Land" continues Black Belt Eagle Scout's (aka Katherine Paul) move towards a more indie rock sound. This song is just absolutely an epic. It only lasts five and a half minutes, but the song feels bigger than that. It's filled with a giant guitar solo along the lines of something from J Mascis along with Paul's intense vocalizations. This one is more along the lines of classic early 90's indie rock and grunge than the "shoegaze meets folk" that we are used to from Black Belt Eagle Scout. "My Blood Runs Through This Land" just keeps building and building with some of the most killer guitar shredding around. If you have yet to jump on the Black Belt Eagle Scout bandwagon, now you're chance.

Katherine Paul says of her upcoming album:

“I created The Land, The Water, The Sky to record and reflect upon my journey back to my homelands and the challenges and the happiness it brought.”
