16 Horsepower – Olden (180 grams Vinyl)


New, never been used and it’s sealed. The whole album is printed on two 12″ 180 grams vinyls .
Many bands have made an impression on both, audience and critics over the last ten years, but only very few have been able to maintain their unique vision of music and the freshness of their early days. 16 Horsepower sure is one of these rare acts.

In 2003 16 Horsepower released Olden. There have been many rumours about these recordings: Olden comprises the complete first two studio sessions of 1993 & 1994, a total of 12 tracks that feature the rawest, purest versions of some of their classics like American Wheeze, South Pennsylvania Waltz or I Seen What I Saw plus never again recorded tones, now available for the first time. This gem is rounded by 6 tracks of one the first ever recorded live shows of 1994 in Denver’s Mercury Cafè, including breathtaking versions of Low Estate and Sac Of Religion. This is more than just an addition to the fan’s 16 Horsepower collection, it is an essential album everybody will need to have the complete picture of the most fascinating band for more than the last decade.

The essential ingredients of Olden are: a broading amalgam of somber, eerie and passionate acoustic Rock music, played with vintage instruments but the furiosity, intensity and sheer power of their live set would make many Thrash Metal bands sound like Little Jimmy Osmond compared to 16 Horsepower on stage.

16 Horsepower continues to explore their obsessions with religion, death and love with a frightening intensity and emotional edge, although in a more subdued fashion.
