‘News’ has been a bit thin on the ground these past couple of weeks here at Creep. Not because there hasn't been any, I've just been focusing on writing proper articles, and catching up on being lazy!! So I thought I would put this together and see how it goes. Originally I was going to share these as individual blog posts, but seeing as they are all music videos I thought I would compile them together into one post. If you like this post, get involved and let us know what you think…
So, here is a quick look at some new videos we have been giving some serious play the past couple of weeks!
01. Cross Me - ‘Numb’
Published: Jan 29th 2016.
Cross Me are a riff heavy Hardcore band from Milwaukee Wisconsin. The love classic and modern Hardcore and throw in plenty of Thrash/Metal influences into the pot when crafting their work. After a couple of EP's, they signed to Bridge 9 Records in 2015 and ‘numb’ is taken from their forthcoming EP ‘Forever Cursed’, which is due 11th March. If you like riffs, Bent Life, Alpha & Omega, Leeway etc, then give this a spin!
02. Walls Of Jericho - ‘Relentless’
Published: Feb 11th 2016
Recently we mentioned the return of Walls Of Jericho with a brand new album coming March 25th titled ‘No One Can Save You From Yourself’. Well, last week the guys and girl gave a glimpse of what they have been working on by teasing us with this video. And it is brutal. Dare I say it, this is potentially some of the heaviest material they have recorded. It sits more in the Metal area of heavy music, but if you have been a faithful WOJ since the early days, you will not be disappointed!
03. Wolf Down - ‘Incite & Conspire’
Published: Jan 27th 2016
Wolf Down are back with a new album ‘Incite & Conspire’, and this video melds together the two album tracks ‘Incite’ & ‘Conspire’ as a dark, brooding and sinister call to arms. They are extremely heavy and extremely pissed off. About everything. Keep an ear out for some guest vocals from Jesse of Stick To Your Guns towards the end. He absolutely kills it!
04. Ocean Wisdom - ‘High Street’
Published: Feb 09th 2016
One of our most anticipated Hip Hop releases of this year, High Focus continue to whet our appetite with teasing Ocean Wisdom cuts. The video for ‘High Street’ walks us through a day in the life of Wizzy while he bars relentlessly. Pay attention for the little ‘Forgot About Dre’ homage in the second verse. Meanwhile, Dirty Dike's production is on point, mixing some Eastern sounding string sample under a Grime orientated drumbeat. Fire!
05. The Capital - ‘Hummingbird’
Published: Feb 14th 2016
We saved this one until the end. The Capital are a local band from in and around Preston comprising members of Failsafe, Next Stop Atlanta and vocalist Seamus McLoughlin. The lads have had a difficult year dealing with the inevitable aftermath of losing one of their best friends, Failsafe vocalist Matthew Cogley. Perhaps, also inevitably, one of the ways they have dealt with this both in terms of grief and moving on, is to gravitate towards each other and make music. Dedicated to their friend, this is a fantastic tribute and a great first track to release. Heartfelt music and lyrics delivered via a healthy dose of Hot Water Music, this has been getting a lot of play!! The Capital have their first (???) gig on March 19th at The Ferret, Preston.
