Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to The High Priest. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I loved their music.
I am really happy to have discovered this talented band. A compositional style that takes inspiration from the legendary rock of the past.
Direct and sincere music without strings attached with irreverent and profound lyrics. A vintage, psychedelic sound that manages to be modern at the same time.
I really liked the production, left a little rough but perfect for the genre. This is the real rock and therefore it is better to feel more sweat and blood than plasticized beats.
It feels like these guys have spent a lot of time in the rehearsal room to achieve such an enviable sound understanding.
Their album Deam American is a mature and complete work, an intense and sincere musical journey that entertains the listener from the first to the last second.
In 2022 The High Priest will come out with a new album “Route 666” which will be preceded by the single Rescue Me. I had the opportunity to preview the single and I immediately noticed that the overall sound has been modernized without losing the sincerity and purity that distinguishes the sound of this band.
A beautiful single powerful and catchy that stays in your head for a long time after listening.
A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.
Dream American is The High Priest’s Album Out Now! In 2022 the band will release a new killer album titled Route 666 so stay tuned!
Sincere and Pure!
The High Priest has refused to be locked into one genre, there is freedom in his ability to float from bluesy rock ‘n’ roll to hard psychedelia and back, sometimes crossing the borderline into realms of dark pulsating electronica.
American Psycho Basslines wrestle with distorted cruch guitars and pulsating drums. The High Priest’s vocals spin yarns of the bands adventures and the darker side of the human condition, yet the sound offers excitement and hope!
The main focus always remains on developing his own musicianship, never resting on his laurels.
