From Svart Records:

Jess And The Ancient Ones’ new album »Vertigo« is out now!

The Savonian occult rock behemoth Jess And The Ancient Ones have emerged with a new album! Their brand of heavy guitar and organ-led swagger has progressed from the twin guitar metal blast of yesteryear to Jess And The Ancient Ones’ very own take on soulful late sixties garage psychedelia. Titled »Vertigo«, the new record is set for release on Svart Records on May 21st this year with a foreboding sound of lysergic doom.

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.
