Bandcamp Recommendations – 5/3/2012

The Heavy Eyes are back with a 2 track demo from their winter recording sessions. It’s only 2 songs (thus the “2”) but they already shows signs of a refined sound. Excellent music as always!




The awaited debut album of Swedish DÖDAREN available through digital distribution services from April 27th.

DÖDAREN was formed late 2010 by four devoted musicians in Gothenburg, Sweden. Their first EP, Flyttar In, quickly reaped attention in the realms of the underground blogosphere and was early accepted as stoner rock. It was compared to larger and more influential bands in the margins of alternative rock and swiftly received some dedicated fans in several corners of the world. Eric, Martin, Fredrik and Jon have prior to the formation of the group played in several different constellations in genres ranging from the softest blues to the hardest hardcore.

Spurred by the success of the EP, DÖDAREN gathered during the winter of 2011/2012 and recorded their debut Maen, further raising the level of ambition. The guys in DÖDAREN see themselves as moving through uncharted territories of style, and thus lets others do the categorizations.

Bandcamp Recommendations 9/29/2011

Big heavy week for Bandcamp Recommendations this week. Lots of heavy stuff for your ears. Consider this a double dose of the normal. There’s been so much discovered, it would be a shame to put it off another week. With the weather starting to cool down, these awesome tunes will help keep you warm. All free of course, make sure you send them an email, message, wall post, tweet or whatever and let them know how much you like them. Buy some physical products, t shirts, concert tickets or beers (for the band, not you). Support them! Props out to A Distant Rumble, I know I got a few of these links from there but I can’t remember which ones.

The first band I found on the awesome Captain Beyond blog as they were featured on the blog’s own Bandcamp Recommendation feature. The band is Eidetic Seeing. Their self titled album is 39 minutes of heavy psych rock, good enough to get you stoned on the music alone.
