I really liked Jess And The Ancient Ones debut single, so i was really looking forward to hear their debut album, a album wich have done really good back in their homeland Finland where it hit the charts on the week of release, and when listening to the album it’s not hard to understand why. This is pretty much the same kind of easy-listening satanic rock such as The Devil’s Blood and Ghost wich are really huge/hyped in the metal scene at the moment.
Jess And The Ancient Ones have, just like The Devil’s Blood a really good female vocalist and it’s hard not to draw parallells between the two of them. The album comes in a fold out cover wich have lyrics on the inside of the foldout, the album artwork are really nice. And i would say that this is so far one of the best albums released this year (as you could see on my top 5 records so far list i published earlier). If you are into the occult easy-listening rock like the bands i mentioned earlier you should most definitely check out Jess And The Ancient Ones.
