Upstart Baltimore-based Grimoire Records first came to my attention a few months ago when Highpriest’s excellent Shift EP landed in my inbox (which I reviewed here). Now they’re on my radar again with Crawling Mountain Apogee, the forthcoming split from Myopic and Torrid Husk, which I’ve been listening to almost non-stop for the last week. If you’ve slept on Grimoire Records thus far, it’s time to for that to change, because they are quickly becoming a label worth paying very close attention to.

After reading about three acoustic interludes on Agalloch’s The Serpent & The Sphere being written by a Canadian songwriter in a band called Musk Ox, I immediately found a Bandcamp page for an instrumental band from Toronto called MuskOx.

As a general rule, I tend to like pretty much everything that Sargent House puts out. After all, their roster incudes acts Russian Circles, Chelsea Wolfe, Emma Ruth Rundle/Marriages, Omar Rodriguez Lopez/The Mars Volta/Bosnian Rainbows, Mutoid Man, and Helms Alee, just to name a few. As a general rule, I also tend to really enjoy Japanese post-everything rockers Boris.

We live on an island called Montreal, and we make a lot of noise because we love each other…
