If you like complex music structure/time signatures, technical guitar parts and high production quality, this is definitely not for you. Sargeist are a lo-fi metal band with obvious influences from the likes of Darkthrone. Satanic Black Devotion was Sargeists first studio album, they have since recorded 2 more full lengths and a few EPs (I recommend getting The Dark Embrace EP).

This week, an album from Australian formed, London based ‘Darkwave’ group ‘Dead Can Dance’.

Tom Waits – Bone Machine

December 21, 2010

There have been a lack of posts recently as I find no motivation to write anything worth sharing. To make up for the lack of posts, I will instead put up music at least once a week.

Today, Tom Waits’ ‘Bone Machine’. Tom Waits is very unique and quite a peculiar artist to be honest. You will either love him, hate him or he will grow on you very quickly.

This album; Bone Machine, consists of his more ‘strange’ music. I absolutely love it. If you’re new to Tom Waits and need a starting point, my favourites on this album are: Black Wings, In The Colosseum, Murder in the Red Barn and Earth Died Screaming.

Band: Tom Waits
Album: Bone Machine
Genre: Alternative Blues, Rock, Experimental
