Churchhouse Creepers Stream From Party to Apocalypse in Full

In giving a couple touchstone comparisons below for Churchhouse Creepers‘ sound, the PR wire notes, among others, The Vintage Caravan. That’s probably fair game. The two bands are both from Iceland, both on the younger side, and both have an affinity for classic heavy rock and roll. In a country with a population of about 330,000, it doesn’t seem unreasonable to think they would’ve run into each other at least once. I don’t know much about Iceland’s heavy scene, but would like to know more. It seems pretty varied between the barrage of black metal, post-black metal and acts like these guys, who may or may not be working in the wake of bands like Brain Police, and especially in a per capita context, it’s hard not to be impressed by the amount of output and the range the country produces.

I guess that doesn’t have much to do with From Party to Apocalypse, the debut album from Churchhouse Creepers, but that can speak for itself since it’s streaming in its entirety now. The Akureyri trio have plans for a CD version to come early next year, but it’s currently a name-your-price download, so it seems pretty clear they’re trying to get it out there as much as possible. Not charging people is probably a decent way to make that happen.

Churchhouse Creepers: Debut Album From Icelandic Stoner Rockers Now Streaming Online

Now you can hear Churchhouse Creepers’ debut full-length “From Party To Apocalypse” in full via the band’s Bandcamp page HERE.

Recorded, mixed and mastered at Studio Emissary by Stephen Lockhart, the album displays a highly energetic stoner heavy-rock that pays homage to classic artists like Deep Purple and Thin Lizzy, but also brings to mind the more recent sounds of The Vintage Caravan and Graveyard.

“From Party To Apocalypse” was digitally released on November 28th and a physical release on cd is expected in early 2016.

Churchhouse Creepers have been knocking out people with their unique twist of energetic stoner-fused party, good time rock n‘roll for the past few months. During their first year of activity, they‘ve played every club and toilet available and willing to accept them in Iceland, and soon generated a big fuzz in the alternative scene with their powerful and entertaining live shows, moving around like drunk gymnasts and partying like there is no tomorrow.

The band first started when Bjarni Jóhannes Ólafsson (guitar/vocals) and Sigurgeir Lúðvíksson (bass/backing vocals), started meeting every Friday to write the biggest grooves possible, influenced by stoner, progressive rock and metal. The grooves soon got faster and more technical but never strayed far from the party. A year later they were joined by drummer Dagur Atlason, who brought everything nicely together with huge Bonham style grooves.

Churchhouse Creepers Are:
Bjarni Jóhannes Ólafsson guitar/vocals
Sigurgeir Lúðvíksson bass/backup vocals
Dagur Atlason drums/back vocals
