JESS AND THE ANCIENT ONES – VERTIGO hits the stores !
Jess and the Ancient Ones’ new album « Vertigo » is out now via Svart Records!
What began on the previous record, « The Horse & Other Weird Tales », is taken further and deeper, towards a conclusion on « Vertigo ». Songwriter and guitarist Thomas Corpse comments, “To me this album sounds like a dark horse – a brother to the previous album. There’s a strange ominous feeling that hovers upon the entire album, maybe it’s the feeling of nostalgia that’s arising from the lyrics.”
Wrapped in a crude tornado-adorned old school sleeve, the album’s eight tracks bubble in a boiling cauldron of vintage pop culture influence and occult-tinged paranoia. Ranging from the softly fiery opening track « Burning of The Velvet Fires » to the almost heavy metal -ish nihilistic banger « Born To Kill », « Vertigo » is a spiraling journey of heavy Finnish psych rock at its finest.
