Debut single from Finland’s Jess And The Ancient Ones, yet another retroband with occult theme but don’t let that scare you away, cos even though the scene is more or less overflowing with bands like these nowadays i think that Jess And The Ancient Ones are worth to lend an ear or two. The band are female fronted and the vocalist Jess have a really amazing voice and the music is soft rock with lots of melodies and harmonies, they somewhat reminds me of the band Coven, a band wich they have covered on the B-side, they do a really good cover of the song “White witch of rose hall” wich was originally released on Coven‘s debut album Witchcraft: Destroys Minds And Reapes Souls from 1969. “The band’s lyrical concept is based upon the personal occult experiences of the writers, which combined with music the creates a strong mystical atmosphere” as it states on the bands recordlabel. Jess And The Ancient Ones will release their debut album on May 19 through Svart Records, looking forward to hear it.
