New Keepers Of The Water Towers Infernal Machine on LP
Attempting to label New Keepers Of The Water Towers feels futile. This five-piece hailing from Stockholm, Sweden has grown at such a consistent pace since first forming in 2006, that pigeonholing their unique sound is immediately outdated with each passing album as the band continues to grow and push the boundaries of their musical and writing abilities.
With their fourth full-length album, Infernal Machine, a concept record based on the classic sci-fi novel The Forever War, they've transformed a tale of an interstellar Galactic battle into a musical odyssey that supersedes anything you've heard to date. From the record's initial onset, listeners are flung into a world where classic prog meets it's unlikely counterparts of pure, vintage space rock, perfectly haunting harmonizing vocal lines, and just enough of the far from modest power riffs to keep you gasping for air with anticipation for the next track to begin as you move forward on your journey.
Drawing influence from the most unique magic of early King Crimson, and the anthem-themed classics of Pink Floyd to the raw, catchy hooks of Mastodon and the memorable harmonies of Alice In Chains, it's clear from where New Keepers Of The Water Towers' roots are derived. For fans of people who love music that crosses boundaries.
