After Sub Rosa and Evoken this is the third new doom kind of metal release I have to review in one week. Jex Thoth can not be compared with either one of them. They play a style that mixes doomy guitars with a little prog and psychedelic stuff embedded in a 70's sound. This all combined with angelic vocals of female singer Jex Thoth and sometimes some Hammond-like piano. Other strange instruments used are for example: flute and bouzouki.
In "Son of Yule" the band combines some Black Sabbath with Deep Purple and Uriah Heep, especially because of the Hammond piano sounds. Other songs differ a lot from each other, sometimes heavy, but slow and sometimes soft and creepy.
Summary: a strange record, not very easy for me to listen to, but a very own style. Maybe food for fans that like also Electric Wizard, but always listen first.
