Listed as “okkult” rock, The Devil’s Blood unleash their debut full-length effort The Time Of No Time Evermore to an unsuspecting audience this May, and it’s a release that will definitely capture the imaginations of those looking for something different in this age of idol worship. Lyrically the album is set through a more occult-like view of the world today, almost as if the hippies of the sixties were a bunch of witches or Satanists. This puts a great spin on the album through its meaning, as well as it’s music, that will make you break out your incense against the haunting tunes and beautiful singing.

As soon as The Time of No Time Evermore kicks in, it’s almost as if you are transported to a place where southern voodoo rituals are the norm thanks to the powerful vocal performance on this album, as well as the very dark and catchy songs that sweep you up into a trance. While “The Time of No Time” is simply an instrumental to start the album off, it builds up some atmosphere for the album before everything kicks in with “Evermore”, a very infectious track that will leave the listener speechless. Sadly the only other tracks on here able to kick up that trance-like feeling again are “House of 10000 Voices” and “Feeding the Fire With Tears and Blood”. There are some other tracks that can pull this off, such as “Queen of My Burning Heart”, but it’s just not as effective and really seems to aim more for a catchy rock feel then anything.

But that’s not saying this album isn’t as entertaining compared to only those tracks. The rest of the album is just layered in ambience that makes you feel like you’re at some sort of voodoo ritual performance, which is simply astounding. “Christ or Cocaine” makes for a great track as well, but “Queen of My Burning Heart” really gets into your blood through the bluesy guitar riffs and solo, as well as a very energetic vocal performance that makes this catchy track really stick with you after listening. The only problem here is that after a while, the material starts to get a little stale.

While the album is very impressive, after a while you’ll start to notice that many of the tracks sound somewhat similar, and the vocals aren’t really all that expansive outside of the more powerful performances that hit during some of the more trance-like tracks. There’s a good chance that The Time Of No Time Evermore will not see a lot of continuous playthroughs, but still has enough solid material on here to spark a random urge to pop the CD into the player and give it a listen, especially with the last track “The Anti-Kosmik Magick” which has one hell of a guitar solo at the end. But, if you’re looking for something different, or at least something well done, then this debut album from The Devil’s Blood is easily worth your time and money.
