Every Friday, a wagon arrives at the Sleeping Village’s gates, stuffed to the brim with our sustenance for the following week. Today is the day we must offload all this new music, and so, in the process, we thought it would be worthwhile to share some of our choice picks from this veritable mass of fresh meat. This is what we’ll be listening to today here at the Village HQ. We hope you join us in doing so!
Note: today, May 1st, Bandcamp is waiving their revenue share for all sales. That means if you buy any of these releases (or any other albums/merch items you've had your eye on) before midnight PDT, the artists will directly benefit directly. In short: buy music today!
On the docket for today, May 1st, 2020:
KEVERRA, Yarrow, Tombstoner, and Icon of Evil (and Vredensdal!)
BONUS TRACK RELEASE!
Vredensdal - Echo of Evil (New Single!)
Vredensdal's sophomoric effort--followup to 2019's excellent Fealty of Diabolism, reviewed by us here--is on its way. In the meantime, this paragon of NWOUSBM has whet our palate with two singles, the second of which dropped literally minutes ago. "Echo of Evil," as ye might surmise by the overtly goat'd cover artwork, is heavily inspired by classic Bathory. Needless to say, this track is a blistering affair, with furious riffage and a decidedly classic bent. It's got an appropriately old-skool black 'n' roll approach--a nice contrast to the previously released "Living By Torch." A video created by Nobody (of Vide and Some Dead Bodies infamy) will be released shortly.
Check it out here! (and consider purchasing! Now would be a great day to do so.)
We provide thoughtful reviews of music that is heavy, gloomy...and loud enough to wake us from slumber. Written by a highfalutin peasantry.
