12:04 - ANGEL REAPER f*kin' managers....i will fire his ass ...OSC is greatest name ever ...
12:00 - ANGEL REAPER i wanna name my synth project as "Obscure Sex Cult"...is this a good idea...my manager says no...
11:39 - Redn1ght Heh. Yeah, they did have some Doom-ish influences here and there.
11:38 - Joodicator I've heard a song off the debut and I liked it. Need to properly check them out. I still find it weird how their mainman went from thrash to doing a load of doom metal projects :S
11:35 - Redn1ght Have you heard Seventh Angel btw? That might interest you if you liked Theocracy.
11:34 - Joodicator No idea. I got mine from Amazon/at the show. Might be worth a try though.
11:30 - Redn1ght That's cool. Yeah, they deserve more attention as they have very solid stuff. I haven't got any of the albums yet as I don't know if it's possible to get them through ordering from the store...
Lately, I have been listening to a lot of occult/psychedelic metal and rock, especially by female fronted bands. The most recent one was Jess and the Ancient Ones and I quite liked what they had to offer.
The music is fun and catchy with a nice retro sound. While a few of the songs were somewhat bland and repetative, the majority of them were really enjoyable with the highlights being "Sulfur Giants" and "The Devil". The singer has a good and diverse voice which is a bit shaky at times but it was nothing that bothered me notably.
Jess and the Ancient Ones self-titled debut is definitively an album I will revisit if I ever feel like listening to some solid and easily digestible occult rock.
yeah, pretty much. makes me long for the creativity of Jex Thoth... and i am not sure what is worse, the cult of personality adopted to female fronted bands or anyone with testes drooling the second a woman fronts a metal band.
i guess it just proves that dudes are no better than the screaming pre-teen chicks getting their panties wet to the Beebs.
Hmm, not sure which is worse, the erroneous, cliche metaller knee-jerk Bieber comparison or the continued misapplication of Weber's sociological / political paradigm (after all I doubt anyone would know of "Jess" as an actual personality without "and the Ancient Ones" tagged on the end of it, unless the definition of "cult of personality" now extends to anyone simply owning a vagina).
And apparently my own sexual organs should make the wealth of femme-fronted symph-goth-power metal bands most appealing to me. Any suggestions people?
Great album though, glad to see it's doing well with many of the (other) staff too. People should check out the new EP, which is also rather nice.
