Though they look young, the guys in Opal are not newcomers to the area’s hard rock scene. Drawing from a wide range of influences — everything from Ween to Slipknot — they’ve been bringing furious performances to the stage for years. Jacob Blunt and Andrew Gunderson trade sonic aggressions on guitar over the heavy backbeat of Jordon Blunt and Ryan Raprager. Theron Haydon’s dark baritone croons over the top of each original number, giving the group an aggressive and deep focal point for their recordings and fast-paced live shows.
