NEW KEEPERS OF THE WATER TOWER
“Cosmic Child”
(Listenable)
I get the impression that I should know of this Swedish band but I‘m sorry to have to say it but I have never ever heard of them before. That apart I get a feeling that this could end up any which way. This could be some of the greatest music ever recorded or it could be the worst kind of crappy prog rock to ever come out of Sweden. Two of my favourite metal experiences all times (among many others) are Norwegian in Arcturus and In The Woods. These two bands are so bloody good that it almost hurts. Listening to NEW KEEPERS OF THE WATER TOWER I almost hope that this will turn out to be just as good an experience. I get a more sane Cult Of Luna feel to this. This is somehow very Swedish and following (in spirit) in the footsteps of greats like Stillborn and more contemporary acts like Agrimonia in this being doom but not necessarily classical doom. There is a stroke of grandiose to this too. A so much better band than I ever had thought. Anders Ekdahl
