Thumbs up Nice Thread!

I'm been bitten by the dark bug and it's become in obsession to find more and more music in the genre. Can't get enough music. The Perreze Farm, Mikey Classic and his Lonesome Spur, Sons of Perdition,

Anyone check out Farmageddon Records?

My Graveyard Jaw is damn cool as well as Black Eyed Vermillion and most of the artists with this record company. Kicking myself to not be able to go to the show next week in Montana.

I'm kinda surprised. I thought Murder By Death was sort of a staple.

No, I had not checked out Farmageddon Records until now and I'm glad that I did. From what I checked out, the bands that reside there are a cut above Gothic Country (et al.) and Psychobilly. More like Hank III - pure evil country blues. I'm excited to check out all of the bands on their roster. So far I love these:

Default Agreed!

There whole roster is impressive. I continue to go down the rabbit hole and keep uncovering more and more. I can't help but think that we'll see an embrace of this music within 2 years time.

Absolutely!
Also, I find it pretty bizarre that they're using a novelty 70s stoner rock band (Pentagram) as the main draw.

Default A Circus/Carnival influence

I know that a list of Dark Cabaret suggestions have been posted but has anyone felt and heard (of course) the influence of Circus/Carnival style elements that the Gothic Country/Americanna Noir/Dark Roots draws from?

The orchestration of the arrangements has that feel of a sideshow and music you may hear at the fairgrounds on a dark night in October with the leaves a fallin'. Tom Waits used this style in several of his albums, majorly in "The Black Rider" album.

You can hear influences in 16 Horsepower - Low Estate, Soda Gardocki - Waltzes, Trains, Wires and Wood, Jayke Orvis and the Broken Band and many of the folks on Farmageddon Records. So bummed I can't get out to see the 50 strong in Montana.

With the Dark Carnival influence in mind, below are some other albums I think are worth checking out:

The Hellblinki Sextet - A Pirate Broadcast
The Hellblinki Sextet - These Bubbles Come from Ants
The Scarring Party - Come Away From the Light
Beat Circus - Ringleaders Revolt
Beat Circus - Dreamland
Circus Contraption - Our Latest Catalogue
Vagabond Opera - The Zeitgeist Beckons

I know of many others if anyone agrees with the correlation and cares to see more.

Hey all, I just came across 16 Horsepower yesterday and I'm really, REALLY diggin it. Very excited to be delving into the general area of Americana/Country! It seems to be the one broad genre of music I haven't found much enjoyment in and this amazing band has changed my mind.

Not very familiar with it overall... but I'm looking for the whole, 'dark and insane' tortured vibe that 16 Horsepower seems to have. I also like that their songs I've heard so far (the whole Sackcloth 'N Ashes album) tend to have a slower, almost avant garde tempo instead of the upbeat or country romance sort of mechanics that I've come to associate with most country music. 'Black Soul Choir' by 16 HP is what I'm lookin for more of in a nutshell.

I did check out some of the artists here. I'm easily turned off by vocalists I don't like, and a lot of these have too soft or upbeat of a voice for me, despite excellent instrumentals. I need deep and gravelly, or tortured, nothing soft and pretty. Hellblinki Sextet and Soda Gardocki were pretty cool of what I heard. Any other recs similar to those?

Edit: Just for clarification. Hated Elliot Brood, O Death, The Handsome Family, Vagabond Opera, and Circus Contraption, mainly because of vocals.

You're not going to find a band that sounds similar to 16 Horsepower. They have a style and sound that is pretty much completely unique to them. Closest thing you'll find is David Eugene Edwards' solo project Wovenhand, but if 16 HP was heroin then I'd liken Wovehand more to methadone, similar to what you're use to, but just not the same.
