Editors’ Notes

A move to Metal Blade Records initially drew concern from ardent disciples of what was once the best-kept secret of Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Would money and resources thin the complex sound of occult rockers The Devil’s Blood? But no; the band's sophomore album is an improved and enhanced progression. The introductory piece “Unending Singularity” sets an eerie and foreboding mood, with stark piano movements creating an unsettling sound inspired by John Carpenter's 1978 theme song for the horror film Halloween. This is followed by “On the Wings of Gloria,” a psychedelic slice of proto-metal that blends sonic accouterments of late-'60s garage rock with the dark and fetching melodies of Blue Öyster Cult. Throughout The Thousandfold Epicenter, frontwoman Farida Lemouchi balances her soulful singing with cool restraint, at times recalling the bewitching charisma of Coven’s Jinx Dawson—especially in the vintage-toned “Fire Burning,” which rocks like an outtake from 1969’s Witchcraft Destroys Minds & Reaps Souls. “Feverdance” closes; it's a pagan-themed acid-rock epic spanning more than 15 minutes.

Customer Reviews

Retro hard rock at its absolute finest

I cant believe itunes still doesnt have the devils blood debut full lenght album "the time of no time evermore"...its a friggen masterpiece but at least itunes didnt make the same mistake twice...the follow-up is mindblowing as well...If the idea of Heart combined with Black Sabbath sounds good then you'll adore this band....& honestly even that doesnt do them justice...This one will be on the list of best metal albums of the year for sure...Praise Satan!

Early contender for album of the year

To realmetalfreek, the reason the singer sounds like he's wearing his pants too tight is because he is a woman, and just because it has the words devil and blood in it doesn't mean it should be, as you so eloquently put it, "straight outta HELL!" They don't call themselves a metal band at all, though I think they're more metal than half the bands out there nowadays, mainly because of the heaviness of the lyrics.

@realmetalfreek

Uh, maybe because the singer is a girl. This is not metal, it is rock n roll. Evidently somebody has heard of them because there is a lot of buzz around this band right now. This is good music by real musicians. Anybody who enjoys dark retro-style rock needs to pick this up. Next time, try not to screw up a band's rating out of your own ignorance.

Biography

Formed: 2006 in Eindhoven, The Netherlands

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Hailing from the Dutch city of Eindhoven, where they were first conceived in 2006 by guitarist Selim Lemouchi, the Devil's Blood hark back to the earliest sightings of '70s heavy metal (Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep, Leaf Hound) and the darker side of '60s psychedelia and folk (Coven, Comus, Black Widow, the 13th Floor Elevators) for the inspiration behind both their music and ritual-like concerts -- which usually see the bandmembers performing occult ceremonies drenched in blood!
