I can’t heap enough praise upon the amazing debut from The Exploding Eyes Orchestra, which features five of the seven members of Jess and the Ancient Ones. “The Smoke” opens with a dose of mystic blues-tinged rock. “Crazy Heart” showcases soft-spoken vocals that weave themselves into a tapestry of bittersweet hooks. “Two Zero 13” is a traditional doom stomper with a touch of psychedelica. Beware the mind-bending riffs of “Black Hound”. “Farewell to All-In-One” touches further on the psychedelic/occult vibe. Fans of JATAO, Orchid, Lucifer and Uncle Acid will appreciate this effort.
