Devil Electric were born in 2015 and started getting some recognition thanks to the 2016 EP "The Gods Below". "Devil Electric" is their first full-length work and gives us the possibility of meeting an occult heavy-rock band clearly devoted to the sound of juggernauts from the Seventies like Black Sabbath and Coven, but able to insert themselves in the vintage-oriented modern scene (Blood Ceremony, Graveyard, Kadavar, Electric Citizen and Blue Pills are some good-to-great names), going sometimes in the doom metal territories owned by the lords Electric Wizard.
You can appreciate and love "Devil Electric" without any problem: the atmospheric elements, the guitar patterns, the rhythmic imprinting, so that each single part of it goes to the fans around the world saying «we are like you». This is an album made by real adepts, able to generate that mix between darkness, psychedelia and occultism we know and love.
In the specific case these Australians employ, with taste, Pierina O'Biern's voice in order to guarantee catchiness and expressivity. The singer is aggressive and charming enough to get our attention, making her the most classical cherry on top of a not perfect cake, but however well done.
You don't need much to understand who Devil Electric are, what they play and what they want to say. Listening to tracks like "The Dove And The Serpent" (already present in the previous mini), "Shadowman", "Lady Velvet" and "Hypnotica" don't let any doubt about it. If you, like myself, don't like living a day without a musical background like this, you just can't miss out on "Devil Electric".
