Jess and the Ancient Ones-Castaneda

Svart Records

Due out November 14th, "Castaneda"  is the latest release from Finland's Jess and the Ancient Ones. Available as a digital download and on 10" vinyl only, "Castaneda" features two exclusive songs in the form of the title track and "As to be With Him". Combined these two tracks run just over 11 minutes long and for this female-fronted occult rock band it's once more all about the psychedelic scene of the sixties and early seventies! Having covered both their 2012 debut (http://metalmark.blogspot.com/2012/09/jess-and-ancient-ones-jess-and-ancient.html) and last year's EP, "Astral Sabbat" (http://metalmark.blogspot.com/2013/02/jess-and-ancient-ones-astral-sabbat.html), "Castaneda" is by far the strongest material of the lot. More consistent and original than previous recordings, "Castaneda" finds a unified Jess and the Ancient Ones growing as musicians and songwriters while playing up to their own strengths and natural abilities. And frankly-speaking that is nothing short of marvelous!
