This CD is a sleeper. I received it for free when I ordered something else - and I like it better than what I ordered. Why? Because it's got a suprise: an aggressive rhythm section that eats small children, devours adults and threatens sonic annihilation. The songs are dark and yet have a bizarre uplifting, energetic quality that speaks of wounded, mutilated souls rising from dark waters.
The vocalist has a style that, like the rest of the qualities of the band and these songs, grows on you until you think you are he. You're thinking about the songs as if you're singing them, that's how emotive his vocals are. I'm in that isolation room with him, going nuts, bouncing off walls and begging, screaming for help from somebody, anybody... I'm burning in hell in eternal torment with the twisted, blackened souls of Bewkenheimer.
I'm convinced that must be the name of an asylum up in Massachussetts someplace where these guys all are, jamming out in a padded room. They'd better not break up and screw up their therapy or I'll never get to see their vaunted live show.

FIVE skulls out of FIVE skulls - and the skulls are on the verge of explosion:
Bewkenheimer puts a sadistic touch of english on the resonating factor of your brainbone!!!

This eponymous - that means 'self-titled', for you illiterates out there - debut album is available at

It's dark music. Thusly, I describe it in DARK TERMS. Ugh.
Anyway, in the heavy metal genre you get a lot of bands like this, beginning with the first one... which you may not know, but was named aptly for a Boris Karloff horror movie...


...which is in my player now...

And it's damn dark.

Damn... damn dark. So dark, so dark. So dark and dank, dank and dark.

Darkness, sinister, moonlit graveyard doom and apocalyptic WORDS! Those dark words that make harpersfairy so mad...

So you're 'sort of' named after one of the slavery-centered skirmishes leading up to the US Civil War, eh?

ambiguous History...Love it
Harpersfairy...has one meaning...
It could allude to diversity, the struggle of right and wrong.

The story of Harpers Ferry is more than one event, one date, or one individual. It involves a diverse number of people and events that influenced the course of our nation's history. Harpers Ferry witnessed the first successful application of interchangeable manufacture, the arrival of the first successful American railroad, John Brown's attack on slavery, the largest surrender of Federal troops during the Civil War, and the education of former slaves in one of the earliest integrated schools in the United States.

My dear Harpers...the girls can be here while I type. (the doodlebug won her game tonight 9 to 6)
You two have a groovy kinda love...

ALIENIST...I think the vocalist of a band is crucial. For me it is mostly about words and singing. Sounds like this vocalist does the trick. I'll check it out.
My husband finds that the music and rhythm are far more important because he plays the guitar I guess. It is funny though, we always end up loving the same songs for the most part. I would really enjoy it if you created a thread or just a review where people name their 5 top ROCK N ROLL singers of all time. No, pop, blues, alternative, country or whatever else. John(my husband) and I play this all of the time and it's really hard because some really good people don't fit in because they just don't ROCK enough.
