Bacchus Priest are a cool Doom/Occult/Stoner Rock band from Greece and they a stunning debut album last year which I missed first time round. More fool me as this album KICKS-ASS!!!

Do yourself a favour and check this great band now as they have created a superb debut album that packed full of sultry vocals and blazing riffs. Sure some of the songs may go on a tad too much but you can't deny how talented this band is. Tracks such as Red Skies, Clockwork Thoughts, Through The Mist and the awesome Sacred Voodoo are packed full of great doom/stoner riffs with a groovy sideline in occult rock.

Hard to believe the album was recorded LIVE in one day as the album sounds superb. It really does. If you're in the mood for a great Doom/Stoner Rock album then look no further as Bacchus Priest have released a great album and one that should appeal to the vast majority of the Doom/Stoner Rock community. Do yourself a favour and check this great band out now.

It's good to see a band create their own sound. They may have been influenced by legendary bands of the past but at least they're doing something different especially Katerina on vocals. Listen to her vocal performance on 41° Shot/Out of the Void. She can sing and I mean really sing....

All in all this is an excellent debut album and I've heard a rumour this album will be released on Vinyl hopefully later on the year. More details to follow soon no doubt. Until then Bacchus Priest demand your attention now....

Excellent and Highly Recommended.
