Coupling Bible verses, occult imagery and tales of substance abuse, sex and death, The Devil's Blood is something of a unique animal. Musically, without putting too fine a point on the whole thing, the band comes off as a blend of Jefferson Airplane and The Hellacopters (take from that what you will). Drawing heavily from 60s & 70s Psychedelic Rock N Roll, they have crafted a sound that is all at once rousing, cerebral and, at times, kind of spooky. I hesitate to call it retro, even though specific images come to mind while listening (I can see lots of strobe lights, smoke, red filters and crazy film projections). The music on offer here definitely has its roots, but the approach and execution makes it feel fresh. All 5 tracks including Roky Erickson cover "White Faces? carry a tangible air of conviction and believability. The female vocals are strong, clear and melodic and fit every nuance of the music and atmosphere perfectly.
