Retro-esque bands are always a touchy subject. On one hand, you've got the obvious downside; it is quite derivative. On the other hand, when it's done right, you've got a celebration of past greats. There's absolutely nothing wrong with digging up the past, so long as you do it with some creativity and personality. Let's just say The Devil's Blood do it with class; a blatant nod to the past, combined with a little bit of harder-edged modernization and just enough of their own flavour to make it distinct.

Take too many drugs and listen to The Devil's Blood.

A great adventurous, yet easily digestible piece of 70's style psychedelic rock, amp'd up for a modern age.

Great album. A little more psychedlic than the previous one.
Picked up the lavish 2LP version of this yesterday when they played in Utrecht from 00:15 - 02:00
Also picked up the lavish 2LP version of the previous album.

But it has female vocals Marcel? (I assume). Will check this out, especially if it's more psychedelic than the last (which I didn't find all that psychedelic, although very enjoyable)

Of course it has female vocals. Do you think Selim would kick his sister Farida out of the band?
Here the female vocals work unlike in loads of other bands.
The first full-length wasn't all that psychedelic like you said. This one is more psychedelic in the guitaring.

Strong album, though I must say I prefer the songs of the 1st album a bit more to these songs.

Just listened to this album again. Damn, most probably The Netherlands best rock album ever. And the production is just FLAWLESS. You can really hear that a lot of money was spent on that.

Really good album. It's more than one hour long and I did not feel it. Time flies while listening to it.
