Eight Bells, the Portland, Oregon power trio, describe their music while experimental metallic — which is. But its moving dynamics and dour however passionate heaviness also owe very much to post-rock, psych, doom, and prog metallic, with blackened overtones. The music group was founded by previous SubArachnoid Space guitarist Melynda Jackson. Sense she’d strike a sonic wall structure having a neo-psychedelic instrumental rock and roll group — there have been limited options for nuanced storytelling — she enlisted bassist Haley Westeiner and SubArachnoid’s drummer Christopher Vehicle Huffel in 2011. Jackson assumed vocal responsibilities. The bandmembers create collectively. Their debut providing, 2013’s conceptual The Captain’s Child, narrated the story of a female lost at ocean, frequently in the 1st person. It had been documented by Billy Anderson and released in 2013 by Seventh Guideline. The music group toured with Agalloch and SubRosa, and in addition played festival phases. Van Huffel remaining after those trips. He was changed by drummer Rae Amitay (from Immortal Parrot, producing Eight Bells an all-female trio) simply with time for the documenting of their sophomore providing, Landless. Anderson sat in the producer’s seat aswell as executive the arranged. Landless continued the storyplot begun around the Captain’s Daughter; it had been issued in Feb 2016, right before a tour with Voivod and Vector.
