Creephouse Jams 8/30/13

Greetings Creeps,

I hope you all enjoyed the Swedish metal trip I took last week.  No theme to the list this week unless you count awesome metal as a theme.  It seems there’s been at least one or more incredible albums coming out a week this year.  I don’t mean incredible casually either, I mean absolutely crushing albums that will be on my playlist for years to come.  The genre is topping itself left and right.  Other genres seem to languish in repetitiveness or distillation and maybe I am biased but there are some truly remarkable albums coming out this year that haven’t just pushed the boundaries of metal but music in general.  And I thought last year was going to be hard to top.  This year may be the benchmark for this decade.

Naglfar – Harvest 

This was on my Swedish play list from last week.  I must have over looked their debut since I got it but revisiting last week I realized it is a darn good album.  Melodic Black Death Metal with those riffs.  Oh those riffs.  It kind of puts their later output to shame which in and of itself, is a shame.

Magic Circle – Magic Circle

My fondness for this sort of jammy stoner/doom metal has been growing a bit here and there and Magic Circle is partly to blame.  Last year everybody was all coocoo for coco puffs over Pallbearer’s album but I think Magic Circle far surpass what they were doing and yet somehow they went criminally under the radar and Pallbearer’s popularity surged.  Don’t get me wrong, I like that Pallbearer album but for me, my money is on Magic Circle.

Mgła – With Hearts Toward None

One of my favorite Black Metal bands right now.  Sweet Polish Black metal with a traditional flare and a gift for writing some truly devastating metal songs.  Blasting, pounding and catchy as hell. They can’t release a new album fast enough.

Michael Perkins – MR 666 – GA008

Super 80’s sounding electronic music.  No not like terrible dance music.  This would seem to fit right in with some 80’s horror movie.  Not usually my thing but I really enjoyed this.

Horn – Konflikt 

Another awesome new album.  I was only familiar with their album Naturkraft based on my friend’s suggestion and instantly enjoyed that so when I got word that there was a new one on the way I was indeed interested.  I am overwhelmingly impressed with the “one man band” concept in black metal and this is fine example of that practice.  Haunting and dizzying Horn is working himself up may favorites ladder.  If you are curious about one man black metal bands there was an awesome three part documentary series about it which you can view here.
