Metal Hammer Reveal Their #1 Album Of 2023


Long-running UK metal and rock publication Metal Hammer have officially revealed their choice for the top album of 2023. While their complete top 50 list is first being made available in print, the long-running magazine have revealed via their website that Creeper‘s “Sanguivore” has taken home the top honors on their list.

Will Gould, who fronts the horror punk outfit, told the publication of the honor:

“It’s so humbling, especially for the type of record we’ve made, as the reference points we’re drawing from aren’t really cool records… We always knew we were going for a darker, vampire-themed album for our third record. I had the whole story written long before we began writing the music. I must’ve finished before the pandemic.”

“‘Sanguivore‘ represents Creeper better than any of our previous records. The first had the trappings of this pop-punk world that we were never really part of but just got lumped in with. The second was brilliant, but had so many songs that we couldn’t play live because they were too soft. ‘Sanguivore‘ is a real representation of this band and what we’re about.”
