Overview If, after meeting John Owen Kerr, the topic of discussion quickly turns to collecting Celtic Frost Cold Lake cassettes, one might assume the multi-instrumentalist behind Marsh Dweller has a love for metal based only in jovial irony. That assumption would be wrong, for Kerr (also of Seidr, Noltem, and Vit) has an expression of heavy music that deals with both the universal question of cosmic significance and a personal need to isolate oneself within the natural wombs of wind, water and woods. On The Weight of Sunlight – as with the classic, unhyphenated heavy metal of the ‘80s – you will find an album carefully constructed without filler, wherein no riff feels unnecessary, heart always transcends bravado, and a common sense approach to songwriting triumphs over mindlessness. Though the styles appear disparate at first glance (melodic death/black metal alongside pure heavy metal), the melding of genres is seamless, and you’ll find yourself drawn in for this entire 43-minute ride. No overly long, too-tech missives here: just a compactness and directness both refreshing and necessary in today’s bloated metal universe. Though a sense of chosen solitude permeates each track, Marsh Dweller was created in collaboration. Guest appearances from the likes of Tanner Anderson (Obsequiae, Celestiial), Andrew D’Cagna (Brimstone Coven, Obsequiae, Nechochwen) and Aaron Carey (Nechochwen, End) add additional textures to the already-varied work on display. Yet as before, each contribution adds just the right amount of color to John Owen Kerr’s vocals, guitars, and drumming, forming a rich palette of metal, compelling enough in its own right. Let The Weight of Sunlight fall upon you! Track Listing: 1. Cultivating the Cosmic Tree 2. The DUll Earth 3. Where the Sky Ends 4. Monumental Collapse 5. Heaven’s Empty light 6. Forks of the River 7. Feathers on the Breath of God 8. The Weight of Sunlight What the critics are saying: “The guitarwork is varied and memorable without being hammy or derivative, the drumming is suitably lively and dynamic, the atmosphere is convincing, and – with an average track length of just over 5 minutes – ideas are repeated at just the right times and never overstretched. Moments like the terrific beat shift in aforementioned “Sky” or the Wodensthrone melody-turned-tremolo riff of the closing title track show Kerr knows how to reforge his ideas for max effect, and the guest solo of Nechochwen‘s Aaron Carey on “Monumental Collapse” only add to the fun. With a bit more adventure and experimentation in the future, Marsh Dweller could very well become the next Panopticon. For now, it’s hard to ask for a better start.” -Angry Metal Guy “I can’t help but praise this album’s knack for sticking with the basics in an entertaining fashion, and this is definitely the sort of release that would really flourish in a playlist of similar artists. The current wave of folk metal is overwhelming in scale, and Marsh Dweller carries the flag with bold commitment.” -Sonic Sensory
