The Exploading Eyes Orchestra: Stream Debut Album On

Added 10 June 2015, 8:37 AM

  What started as a pastime for Jess and the Ancient Ones guitarist and songwriter Thomas Corpse has morphed into an actual band: The Exploding Eyes Orchestra. With a lineup consisting of five out of seven Jess and the Ancient Ones members, the band's debut album, simply titled I, will hit the streets on June 15th via Svart Records. And today, slow 'n' low authority is streaming the entirety of The Exploding Eyes Orchestra's I exclusively HERE, along with an interview with Thomas Corpse.

According to Thomas Corpse, the idea behind The Exploding Eyes Orchestra was to find an outlet for material which the prolific songwriter found incompatible with the Jess and the Ancient Ones concept. The album is culled from lengthy recording sessions held in Kuopio, Finland in the winter of 2013 and 2014, and these sessions also produced another album's worth of excellent material, which will see the light of day on the next release, II, in the spring of 2016. Despite the relaxed nature of the sessions, these are not jam-based improvisational tracks but strong, carefully planned compositions.

What else the future might bring to The Exploding Eyes Orchestra is difficult to foretell, and Corpse likes to consider the band as a loose collective unit which doesn't necessarily follow the traditional route of rock bands (even though they do play live and release albums) but is not a therapy session either. Hear the whole thing for yourself exclusively HERE, courtesy of Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
