Album Review

Eight Bells – “Legacy of Ruin”

carsonstreet   5/31/2022   A Library, CD

Eight Bells is from Portland, Oregon. Legacy of Ruin is their third album. Beautiful vocals and melodies hanging over prog like fretwork. ’70s rock from Pink Floyd to Hawkwind are obvious influences. Pitchfork says: “Dual vocal lines emanate from some unseen place, sometimes braided together in a conjoined plea for connection… Heartbreakingly beautiful.” This is a combination of metal, experimental and prog rock. Hot off the presses released February 25, 2022.

Whoa! I?d like to see these guys live. They?re playing the Bottom of The Hill on August 18, 2022, with Year of No Light, that?s gonna be a good show. I?d be there, but I just can?t see them all. I?m waiting for October 2, so I can see Slift. I live in Mexico, that makes it tough to see every band that comes through town. So I gotta be picky, and yes I travel for gigs. Thank you Dangerous Dan for turning me on to Eight Bells.
