It was another amazing vote for your August Featured Band/Artist (even though Facebook had to go and make their infamous random and unexpected changes), and fans for local, self-described “skrap metal” band, SuperKreep, brought it with a force, coming in at 220 votes! They even got started a little late on this month’s competition, so way to go SuperKreep fans! That’s how you get your favorite band noticed!
Here’s the low down on SuperKreep….
From the time these guys started back in 2004 as a local garage band in Trenton, OH, they’ve been stirring up the local scene with their brand of music, dubbed “Skrap Metal”, and offer a mix of heavy, dynamic, old and new school, with a touch of southern flavor! Between their 1st and 2nd albums, they’ve played XFEST and had airtime on Cincinnati’s WXEG New Rock 103.9 and shared stages with various national bands such as Skid Row, Quiet Riot, Otep, The Misfits, and Soil. Their second album which was released in 2010 entitled, “Wizer Than The Wicked”, has achieved success enough for them to return to the studio later this year, at Refraze Recording Studio, to begin recording for a third album!
Today I got to sit down and have my first listen to SuperKreep’s 2nd album, Wizer Than The Wicked, and I can tell you it was a jammin afternoon for my 1st listen through, filled with a good amount of variety both within the songs and between the different songs. There were various dynamics and energy levels and definitely refined skills at work throughout the album. I like to give albums multiple listens, so I’ll be on this album multiple times this month and getting a better and better grasp on their music hoping to share some more insights about their music with you soon! In the meantime, get on over to their page and give them a listen for yourself!
