Italian doom trio Three Eyes Left slipped into my life in 2011 via their EP "Non Method As Method, No Limits As Limit" a wonderful two tracker full of heavy doom soaked riffage, dark angular rhythms and clean throaty vocals. In 2013 the band released "La Danse Macabre" their first full album, crisper and more polished than the previous release "La Danse Macabre" showed a band that were improving  both in  songwriting and musical skill and a band with a bright future. We are now well into 2015 and Three Eyes Left have just released their latest opus "Asmodeus"

"Asmodeus" is, in my opinion, the bands best recording to date, an album that once again shows that this is not a band willing to just sit on its laurels but a band who are willing to push forward yet still remain true to its roots. From the filthy opening riff of "Beyond The Mountain" to the vocal that closes final track "Trident"everything about "Asmodeus" reeks of class. This is a refined doom, an almost alternative doom, a doom that nods its head to the past but has its feet firmly placed in the stonerized grooves of today.

 Maic Evil's vocals, right through the album, are delivered with a controlled clean fury, every syllable dripping with passionate power while his guitar solos scorch and his riffs burn, spewing from his fretboard with fuzzy furiosity. The rhythm combo of Andrew Molten (bass) and K Luther Stern (drums) are not just there to keep time, their powerhouse grooves swell the dark doomy sound filling in the gaps with deep booming four string and percussive thunder,pushing the bands sound to unbelievable heights. Together the three members have created an album that seeps into your inner-core filling your soul and raising the hairs on the back of your neck, sending shivers down your spin. "Asmodeus" is in short KILLER!
Going by the release dates of their EP's and albums it seems like Three Eyes Left like to do things in two year cycles so if that is the case I can't wait for 2017.
