Demon Eye are a band from North Carolina that plays a mixture of doom, heavy metal, occult and hard rock and this is a review of their 2017 album "Prophecies And Lies" which will be released in August by Soulseller Records.
Heavy doom metal riffs start off the album along with a decent amount of melody and after awhile clean proto metal style vocals are added onto the recording along with a great amount of 70's classic rock influences while the solos and leads are melodic and remain true to a retro style.
While the music is rooted in the past the production gives the songs more of a modern feeling and acoustic guitars can also be heard briefly while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses elements of traditional metal are added onto the recording along with a small amount of mid paced sections and spoken word parts are also added onto a later track and the closing song is very long and epic in length.
Demon Eye plays a musical style that takes doom and traditional metal and mixes it with 70's era occult and hard rock to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness, occult and political themes.
In my opinion Demon Eye are a very great sounding mixture of doom, heavy metal, occult and hard rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Waters And The Wild" "Kismet" "Power Of One" and "Morning's Sun". 8 out of 10.
