Fronted by guitarist Gary Ramon, psychedelic rock
band Sun Dial emerged in 1990 with the classic LP

Their next album, Reflecter (1992), reached the Indie

Libertine (1993) streamlined their psychedelic sound
while Acid Yantra (1995) introduced a heavier sound
with echoes of Black Sabbath and Nirvana.
Sun Dial returned in 2003 with a new album Zen For
