Ken Goodey This is a bit post-black metal/black metal; a bit shoegaze; a bit psych./prog./doom, and really, surprisingly mellow for heavy music - even during the darker, weightier parts. Eight Bells have managed to achieve an epic sound that feels as old and as solid as the hills, while flying free across the skies. Favorite track: Touch Me.

Laws Listens Landless captivates and compels in equal measure, with ghostly vocals and clever arrangements that spell beautiful doom. Inexorable and sublime, the album paints a bleak and provocative picture that will hypnotize you.

Jason Sullivan One word.....haunting.
The vocals lure you closer. The music tells you it's a trap.....but you can't help yourself.
Down..... your doom. Favorite track: Hating.

Eight Bells Portland, Oregon

"Wraithlike vocals and numbed melodies hanging over pinprick prog fretwork... The pulse of ethereal '70s rock – from Pink Floyd to Hawkwind's more celestial moments... Dual vocal lines emanate from some unseen place, sometimes braided together in a conjoined plea for connection... Heartbreakingly beautiful."

Track Name: Hating
When the pain of hating fades
There is only the relief

of indifference how it grows
Apathy engulfs

Fresh water as it flows
To my past, the sea

Accustomed to the burn of salt
I sip this infectious tea
Track Name: Landless
Weakling cannot hold the waves;
The wind, the sand.

Captive, screaming at the sea;
Tremor in my hand.


Weakling, as your disenchantment grows;
Buds of rage seek the sun.

You are the captive, diminished at the stern;
Hardened is your gaze.



Track Name: Hold My Breath
They claim majesty is in the terror you reign
Hold my breath

And the weak have the greatest price to pay
Hold my breath

With everything we watch and do and say
Hold my breath

They have taken the rippling hills
They have plundered the fruited plain

Hold my breath

They have sold our souls for a dying wage

Hold my breath

Your critical gaze
Butchers my days
Your critical gaze
Caught in a maze

You're critical

You're critical

I hold my breath
Track Name: The Mortal's Suite
Does it please the chorus?
I have found my own ground
Does the feast gnaw us?
Wrestled down, not a sound

In our times we dare not stir
Conviction’s missing lure
We dare not speak with her breath
For that would be too close to death
Track Name: Touch Me
Barren boughs arch over our heads
Moved by the wind
They bend or break
Touch me

Shattered numb reaction to gale or gentle breeze
Don't prefer one or the other
Trees withstand whims and chance
Touch me

Your love permeates We say the words
Your love decimates We feel the twinge
There is pain in being true We say the words
There is pain in knowing you Lack of progress
