Saint Blasphemer - Simon Templar EP is the first release from the Santa Ana, California band. The first songs were written and the band formed as a reaction to a heroin epidemic sweeping Orange County. Vocalist - Monroe felt like so many others, helpless watching people get sick and die. Nullify is a dark biography, a window into a scene many don't survive. Simon Templar could be either a mystical journey, a conversation with a psychiatrist or both. Scarecrow draws on dark side of Oz themes, exploring isolation and a desire to go home - wherever that may be. A Perfect Rose comes off almost as a tale of unrequited love left to die on the moors of some far off Catherine. The final track revisits the dope scene, as Monroe pleads "You've got to find a reason to stay clean..." Listeners will recognize the influences of Peter Gabriel, Tool, and The Cure, mixed with Saint Blasphemer's own strong artistic voice.
