3 stars DEVIL DOLL has to be one of the most bizarre, frightening, confronting and satisfying bands in existence. Their music is a chilly assault on your senses possessing unique tonal atmospheres and very ecletic epic songs. There is simply no way to explain in details the feelings and emotions DEVIL DOLL's music possesses. 'Sacrilegium' begins with a bang, soaring organs and seventies prog slowly overtaken by a demonic choir chanting some sacred rites. Then, Mr. Doctor, the high priest of DEVIL DOLL, begins his serpentine recitation, of mysteries and tales of horror with his warbling raspy falsetto. I personally find "Sacrilegium" to be themost theatrical (if that is possible) of all the DEVIL DOLL recordings and really acts out in a vaudevillian manner. Truly possessed and haunting art rock. The unusual and unpredictable music of DEVIL DOLL is an elaborate tapestry of styles, a surreal exploration of the unknown territory that is the 'theatre of the mind'. Intense and dramatic, the DEVIL DOLL experience spans the broad spectrum of music and emotions. Essential music for your expanding brain.
