Creephouse Comics Jams 10/25/2013

Greetings Creeps,

This week was a little slower for new releases.  Motorhead, Hail of Bullets, Necrophobic and The Creephshow all have new albums and while I am a fan of all three, The Creepshow easily got more listens this week than the other two.  There are still a couple I’m waiting on so I spent the week listening to some stuff friends gave me and revisiting some new and old releases.  That new Seidr album is having a hard time not being listened to.  It’s a force to be reckoned with and who am I to fight it.  I’m starting a rough draft of my best of 2013 list and right now that is high up the list.   The new Inquisition is on that rough list as well.  Incredible albums.

This week I delved into some Manowar courtesy of my buddy Patrick Hoover.  This stuff is ridiculously cheesy and awesome because of it.  They are like the SyFy channel original of metal.  Watain hasn’t left my weekly play list for weeks and hot of off being almost literally blown away by their live performance last week, they remain a constant presence in my listening habits.

Also, just in case you didn’t know, the green titles are links.  Get some metal!

Seidr – Ginnungagap

I can’t seem to not want to listen to this album all the time.  It’s a hulking beast of an album both in sound, style and length.  The best of art makes us think and opening an album with Carl Sagan sure puts you in that mind set of questioning.  If this was the music that made the world turn I wouldn’t complain once.

Skeletonwitch – Serpents Unleashed

It took me a while to warm up to Skeletonwitch.  For a while I had them pegged as one of those crossover, retro thrash bands and just didn’t bother to give them a try.  When their last album came out and it was receiving so much praise I figured I would give them an honest try.  Good thing I did.  They play a sort of break neck, balls to the wall blackened thrash metal that just goes for broke.  So with the new one I was eagerly anticipating it’s release.  Again, true to form they have crafted another blistering album albeit with some more melodic elements added.  That and the cover design is incredible.

Vinterland – Welcome My Last Chapter

I kind of dig these one album black metal bands.  They release just one killer album then fade away into obscurity.  There is something soothing about knowing this is all they have and that it’s not only amazing but probably doesn’t need a follow up.  To bad many bands can’t fire on all cylinders like this for one album let alone a career.  At least we have Welcome My Last Chapter.

In Solitude – Sister

Last week I saw In Solitude (along with Tribulation) open for Watain.  They put on a hell of show and it made me want to go back and listen to this new album of theirs some more.  I liked the last one quite a bit so I was enthused about this one.  Sisters is a solid, hard rocking album.  Maybe not metal like you would expect but they seem to have progressed past their Mercyful Fate worship of the last album.  It’s still in that sort of cult metal style but the songs are more complex and atmospheric.
