Doesn't seem that bad to me?

I liked the album. It's better than many other things I've heard in 2012 and the singer has a really great voice!

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.

Excellent stuff indeed. Really good record, as evident by Marcel's and Alloy / skaep / *insertdailynamechangehere's* dislike of it.

Yeah I'm really glad this ended up in hard rock, a category that doesn't usually have anything of interest for me.

Same here... This great cover art encouraged me to check it out (don't know, pretty reminds me of Subrosa's latest).

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.
