New Keepers Of The Water Towers

This enigmatic Swedish band with the mouthful for a name started out around 2007, initially working in a more stoner/doom mold. For a time they went by just New Keepers, and as such recorded two EPs before a submission found its way to MeteorCity Records, who packaged the two recordings into one compilation as Chronicles, with the band returning to their full name at that time. Since then they've recorded three albums, with the latter two (2013's Cosmic Child and 2016's Infernal Machine) notable both for being outstanding albums but also being not terribly similar to each other. Cosmic Child sees the guys broadening their earlier Mastodon-ish style to more drawn-out epics, bordering on progressive doom, and Infernal Machine takes that progression to another level, a largely instrumental effort with a strong cinematic/soundtrack feel. These guys are clearly operating on their own terms and within a space virtually all to themselves -- probably not a recipe for superstardom, but it does make for great music.
