Columbus, Ohio's Mount Carmel pound out extensive, riff-heavy jams that draw substantially from the blues-based rock of Cream, Blue Cheer, and Black Sabbath. As a tight power trio with feet firmly rooted in the past, it seemed like a stretch when the bandmembers announced they would pair with a label built on the modern "shitgaze" phenomenon of slack lo-fi artists like Times New Viking and Psychedelic Horseshit. Yet Matthew Reed, Patrick Reed, and Kevin Skubak signed to Siltbreeze for the self-titled Mount Carmel album in 2010, and stayed with their hometown label for the 2012 follow-up, Real Women. The band eventually moved to label Alive Naturalsound, where they released their third album, Get Pure, in 2014.
