Jex Thoth - Blood Moon Rise (2013)
Like Blood Ceremony, Jex Thoth have a deep appreciation for all that is vintage, psychedelic, and doomy. Their main talent lies in creating hypnotizing, engrossing songs whose magical keyboards, leaden riffs, and seductive, haunting vocals all combine to create some very powerful, trance-inducing music. Another noteworthy feature of Jex Thoth is their keen sense of just how heavy to make a song and thus perfectly balance the riffs with the melodies, atmospherics, and emotions. "Blood Moon Rise" is a perfect example of retro-doom done tastefully in terms of having a sound that is both influenced by older bands and original. It will certainly make my list of top doom albums at the end of the year.
