Editors’ Notes

His third studio full-length finds Guy Blakeslee (a.k.a. Entrance) exploring the depths of his haunted mind. More fleshed-out (and subsequently more rocking) than the preceding acoustic-based album Wandering Stranger, 2006’s Prayer of Death cemented the start of The Entrance Band: a lysergic hard-rocking juggernaut. “Grim Reaper Blues” is the perfect title for an opening song that swirls eerie delta blues riffs filtered through giant amplifiers and some vocal distortion that intersects The White Stripes with vintage Gun Club recordings. The following “Silence of a Crowded Train” hemorrhages gallons of bloody reverb splashed on a sonic mess of wah-wah guitar, gypsy violin, plodding drums, and Blakeslee’s nightmarishly noir lyrics of confusion and hopelessness. In the brilliantly kaleidoscopic “Requiem for Sandy Bull (R.I.P.),” Entrance pays homage to the bygone avant-folk luminary with sitar, cymbals, and a darkened noisy ambience that sounds like analog tape echo being played backward. Though this instrumental tune is the shortest offering here at less than three minutes, it’s incredibly powerful.

His new band is all around better but I'm glad to own this album and I've gone to some incredible places with it.

Guy Blakeslee is the brainchild behind the kitschy rock sound of Entrance. Blending threads of glam like T. Rex with Big Star/Cheap Trick-styled pop hooks, Entrance offers something more tangible compared to Blakeslee's days spent working with the Convocation Of... in Baltimore. As a resident of Chicago, Entrance became a regular performer at the Hideout, a local bar that hosted a Monday night cabaret with Zwan's Matt Sweeney. For 18 months, Entrance honed his soulful indie rock. Tiger Style picked...
