Prussian Folklore’s ‘Devil’: An Atmospheric Tale of Temptation and Resistance

Prussian Folklore’s new single “Devil” is a captivating and atmospheric track that showcases the Montana-based artist’s unique style and storytelling ability. The song’s opening guitar riff immediately sets the tone for the rest of the track, with haunting vocals that draw the listener in and hold their attention throughout.

The sparse yet effective instrumentation on “Devil” includes subtle percussion and synth-esque textures that perfectly complement the vocals, building to a powerful and intense chorus. Netzloff’s lyrics tell a story of temptation and resistance, with a melody that is both evocative and memorable.

It’s clear that Prussian Folklore has found his own voice and style as a solo artist, with a sound that is a departure from his work with Wartime Blues. The artist’s ability to capture the essence of his hometown in his music is a testament to his talent as a songwriter and musician.

I have no problem recommending this standout track that highlights Prussian Folklore’s talent for creating emotionally-charged, atmospheric music. Fans of indie folk and atmospheric rock will find much to appreciate in this single and in Prussian Folklore’s wider body of work. “Devil” is a promising glimpse into the artist’s future and leaves us excited to see what he has in store for us next.

Pretty Creatures unleashed alt-rock’s most ominous arrival with their atmospheric single, It’s Coming

With a Slipknot Unsainted-Esque intro, Kyuss-reminiscent hard rock sludge and a similar rhythmic sense of seduction to Velvet Revolver, Pretty Creatures’ seminal track, It’s Coming, is a harbinger of overdriven atmospheric alt-rock that every self-respecting rock fan should heed.

Primed to dominate the Glasgow alternative scene, Pretty Creatures (formerly known as Dead Coyotes) have blackened their sound, allowing their new transition to coalesce with the dystopia of our modern era. Thankfully, none of their former melodicism was lost to the juggernautical furore in It’s Coming. You can’t say you haven’t been warned.

It’s Coming is out now on Spotify. Check out Pretty Creatures on their official website & Facebook.
