Three Eyes Left - (2015) Asmodeus

Three dancing eyes chasing the night idol, a sound bending at the magical sphinxes of times ready to explode in millions of vivid and dying butterflies. A needles storm enveloping more distant minds’ sleep to fecundate the first handmaid’s ancient womb. A psychic and interrupted rock, a multitude of words weaved together with a string made of stones and gems. Three eyes left is the dance before the word and the word before del colour, and now waits for the harvest refulgence to gather and offer the livid germ of its roots. Dance incestuous sons! At the sickle light, find the chosen ones, show them what they will receive in gift. A mass of mothers and sisters, of eyes consecrated to the black light of the oblivion, an ethereal mastodons and solar flares’ Danse Macabre. A music box made of tendon and blood from which rolls itself the inception silence, the virgin the offers herself for another smile, the planet that fears a light that isn’t its own. From the Stones’ Gardens up to the never born dreams, through the Third Stone, to the solitude of mud beyond the discriminating mind’s hell, Three Eyes Left is sludge and psych, now more than ever.

Three Eyes Left are a heavy-psyche-doom band from Italy, hailing from Bologna. After a demo and a couple of EP's they released their first album "La Danse Macabre" in 2013 on Go Down Records. Receiving good praise from the underground metal fans and critics alike. The band has toured relentlessly, opening for bands such as Misfits, Wino, Dead Meadows, Church of Misery, Void of Sleep, OJM and Veracrash... to name a few. In October they recorded their second full-length, that will be released in March. Entitled "Asmodeus", again on Go Down Records. This new offering is sure to please the lovers of heavy rock once more.

Having heard this new album a few times now, I can honestly say Three Eyes Left haven't lightened up any on "Asmodeus", in fact it's safe to say... they've honed their chops and crafted an masterful salute to doom within the eight tracks. So many bands follow what Black Sabbath has done since the 70's. And deservedly so (Sabbath being one of my favorite bands ever), but it seems done to death. Three Eyes Left obviously love their Sabbath without question. However, Instead of being just another clone, they take what Sabbath started and build upon it with even more heaviness and clever song writing. 

With over an hour of music on "Asmodeus", you really get more bang for your buck. While most songs clock in around eight minutes, there are a couple tracks that break the 10 minute mark ("Lucifer Brightest in the Sky" and "Into the Red Light of Sabbath"), not once sounding forced or getting boring. Rest assured "Asmodeus" will be one of the highlights this year for doom-heads around the world.

The album will be available on vinyl (black, orange and green), a limited edition compact disc (50 copies) and digital download. So get them before they are gone. They are taking pre-orders right now on their Bandcamp page. Or buy the vinyl directly from Go Down Records.      -AW
