Limited colored vinyl LP pressing. Savonian occult rock behemoth Jess and The Ancient Ones' brand of heavy guitar and organ-led swagger has progressed from the twin guitar metal blast of yesteryear to their very own take on soulful late sixties garage psychedelia. Titled Vertigo, the new record is awash in a foreboding sound of lysergic doom. What began on previous record, The Horse & Other Weird Tales is taken further and deeper, towards a conclusion here. Songwriter/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 it's finest.
