New Keepers of the Water Towers

Some good progressive stoner/doom from Stockholm Sweden.......The New Keeper of the Water Towers are singer/guitarist Rasmus Booberg (I don't make em up), guitarist Victor Berg, drummer Tor Sjoden, and bassist Bjorn Andersson.

These guys have released three albums to my knowledge, the first being 2009's "Chronicles" which apparently is a collection of some of their earlier works.....it does not disappoint, this is some pretty fair Swedish stoner metal complete with WAY out-there song titles and lyrics (random examples: "The Strafing Lobster", "The Three Headed Cow" , "Fall of  the Massive Boar (Parts 1 & 2)"....good stuff, really, for stoner rock fans, nice and loud and heavy and druggy and what more could you want?

Thier first "proper" album, then, was "The Calydonian Hunt" from 2011...a very underappreciated albom that particulat "era", they really rounded into form and turned out a full, mature effort.....I assume that maybe some "concept" is at work here, but there is no way that the big guy's addled brain is going to wrap around the concept set forth in stuff like "Return of Ziz" and "The Call From the Cosmos".....sounds pretty good coming from the speakers after 15grams or so of Kratom......

More recentley, they have given us "Cosmic Child", again, very, very underappreciated in the stoner rock genre.....they are getting MORE "out there" rather than moving towards the mainstream which is normal behavior in this field...this is more like a Wo Fat album or something (and you know I LOVE Wo Fat) with long hypnotic tracks like "Visions of Death" and "Pyre for the Red Sage"......

Really, really like this band's stuff.....they put every ounce of thier imagination into being bizarre, which is a bonus in the stoner realm, and they also bring the goods instrumentally, loud and hard......if you are a fan of stoner rock,of the other stoner bands I have featured here, this is certainly for you...... promise!
