Jess and The Ancient Ones – Vertigo

Label: Svart Records      Release: 21 May 2021

We have often praised Jess and The Ancient Ones from Savo, Finland, since we had more or less accidentally stumbled into their Tuska performance back then. The new album Vertigo continues what began on the previous record, ‘The Horse & Other Weird Tales’, only taken further and deeper, It has all the elements that characterize those Finnish occult rockers: heavy guitars and vintage “Addams Family” organ sound, plus Jess’ unique hypnotic voice – psychedelic Rock channelling the 1960s. However, not at all old-fashioned or stale, but groovy ear candy and occasionally blending into heavy metal spheres. Simply this trademark Jess and The Ancient Ones’ style and thus absolutely recommendable.

reckless and merciless dictator, so KNEEL! In other words, editor-in-chief, translator, website and ad admin, "Jane of all trades" - - - addicted to books (everything between Lord Of The Rings & quantum physics) and music, mainly Metal made in Finland. Furthermore, there's painting, drawing, movies, theater... so you can expect some variety on this website too. MA Master of Arts, English and American studies & Media communication = completed two full studies parallel within 5 years; very proud of my achievement - a bit later in life thanks to a scholarship - as a working class girl in a highlyconservative-romancatholic nation...
