Sheep Fiends – Gathering the Ghosts

Album #: 85

Recording Dates: 2013

Release Date: 2014

Catalog: SF


This album captures a rather successful reunion with Sheep Fiends powerhouse Dave Ladd after several years of absence. One of our spookier releases for sure as paranoia and horror dominate the lyrical content while some creepy instrumentals tie it all together like rusty chains on a long forgotten sunken vessel.

Three Track Sampler

Track 01 – Like a Phantom (Sheep Fiends) – Smooth and breezy we suddenly get jazz-tinged, if only for a few minutes. Brian comes up with a sort of love song that’s kind of laid back but also a bit twisted. As it should be.  [Scratch on Guitar]

Track 02 – The Weakest Selector (Sheep Fiends) – Just because there are no six string guitars on this track doesn’t mean we can’t go heavy and eerie and epic. The NSA may or may not be a dating app but either way it’s clear that they are watching me watching you. Wake up man!  [Scratch on Vocals]

Track 12 – To the Bottom of the Sea (Sheep Fiends) – This song starts off feeling like it was pulled from the soundtrack of some forgotten beach party movie from 1966. But soon enough the suffocating reality of a deep sea expedition reveals itself. Can you handle the pressure?  [Scratch on Bass]
