5 stars This would certainly have to go down as one of the most bizzare yet brilliant prog recordings I have ever heard. As like all DEVIL DOLL albums,the dark and foreboding nature of the music is pronounced and comfortably supported by the distorted vocals of Mr Doctor. "Eliogabalus" has a very strong theatrical presence througout and at times plays better as a movie soundtrack than an album. DEVIL DOLL are not to listened to by the young at heart as this is highly disturbed music which does move in and out of some real dark atmospheres. "Eliogabalus" is comprised of 2 long monster tracks which really feed off of each other nicely giving the listener strong continuity. DEVILL DOLL create everything from circus-like atmospheres to opera. Musically "Eliogabalus" is brilliant and contains lots of classical piano, E-Bow and Violin with great guitar as support. This is an album that will take a few listens before you may categorize as one of your favs, but you will be convinced!!! Amazing stuff!!
