5.0 out of 5 stars I think you should get this record now 23 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
I know most of the reviews on Amazon always wax lyrical, usually inappropriatly so. But this really is one of the best records I've ever heard, certainly the best of this millenium.
Difficult to describe their music as it is quite unique, I've heard them described as Doom metal & Stoner rock - I think they sound like niether. Their music is trippy; but not in the conventional sense, and there are heavy riffs here; but it don't sound like Sabbath. Instead the riffing seems to have either brittle quality, or throb hypnotically beneath a swirling miasma of organs and squacking leads. That remind me of the wig out solos favoured by Saint Vitus. The music seems sparse and arrid yet at the same time rich and atmospheric. There is also a vaguely occultic flavour to it, the effect is powerful and very convincing.
The real jewel in the crown though is the female singer, who is amazing. Her voice is husky and quite sexy, soaring evocativley one minute and wispering suggestivley the next.
What really puts this band in another league though, is the sheer artistic vision of the thing - which makes most other bands look unambitious and impotent by comparison. All the songs here are brilliant with great lyrics, and they flow together cinematically with water tight credability. This is a highly original record, and only for the open minded - and as such I only hope they get the recognition they deserve. Because if you compare this to the rather dry mini album that preceded it, god only knows what their next record will sound like - or should that be the devil!

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, beautiful 9 May 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I agree with the reviews above. This broadly fits into the stoner metal/psychedelic rock genre, and I've been listening to a lot of that lately, but this is in a league of its own. Jessica Toth's witchy vocals go really well with the powerful chords. I have played this to death over the past few weeks, and I still love it. Best comparison is kind of a contemporary Jefferson Airplane.

Also worth checking out is Jessica's gnostic project Sabbath Assembly.

5.0 out of 5 stars I had to add another five 28 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
As I write there is a great review above,that sums up the same thoughts as I had.This is a special album with such a good atmosphere and such a great singer.Like a cross of electric wizard's psyche/sabbath heaviness and the band coven with singer Jinx's soothing yet spooky vocals,who released their first album in 69 (check them on myspace).

4.0 out of 5 stars Doomy Guitars and Strong Vocals 12 April 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This album contrasts low, fuzzy dirty guitar work in the style of Electric Wizard or early Orange Goblin with Jex's soulful and warm vocals. The first few tracks stand-out as examples of solid song-writing and dynamics, but the 4-track "Equinox Suite" certainly doesn't out-stay it's welcome either. Highly recommended for fans of the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent "alchemical doom" debut 12 Dec 2008
By happydogpotatohead - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Jex Thoth, named after the lead singer, calls what they do "alchemical doom." That's as good a name as anything for this unique and luxuriantly involving music. Though many in the doom and stoner metal communities have praised this record, it's got just as much to do with Amon Duul II and Patti Smith as it does with Black Sabbath and Pentagram. And like all the above-named artists, Jex Thoth crosses a lot of boundaries and can't be easily pigeonholed.
The most striking thing, the first thing that will be noticed by any listener, is Jex Thoth's voice. In a word (even though it's an overused word), it's magnificent. The phrase "soaring vocals" is way overused, but the way Jex Thoth sings almost demands that it be used. Her voice is fiery, full-throated, emotional, convincing and dramatic. Even when she sings something borderline preposterous, like "I am the warrior woman, your only hope is to follow me," which would sound pompous or silly coming from most other people, damn if I don't believe it and start packing my stuff. That's how convincing she can be.
The songs on this debut (not counting a previous incarnation of the band as Totem) have memorable melodies that stick in your mind for a long while, and despite the sometimes muddy recording quality and the sometimes questionable musicianship of the band (who, goddess bless them, overreach themselves - not a bad thing), the whole album does what music is supposed to do - wrap you up and take you someplace else. The album puts you in a different world. It presents a strong vision and a beautiful voice. Jex Thoth is the real article, not a retro flashback. This is a brilliant and wonderful CD and I can't wait for the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Psychedelic doom - sneaks up on you 29 July 2012
By Pewsagl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a really, really cool stoner/doom album! I'll admit that I was really looking forward to receiving this after reading about how great it was, then when I heard it, I was kinda like - eh, okay it's cool, but not all that. Anyway, this one sneaks up on you! I listened a second time, and the next thing I knew, the songs were just popping up in my mind throughout the day.

Jex Thoth is a 5 piece doom/stoner metal group named after lead singer Jex Thoth (short for Jessica, I think). There is definitely an occult tinge to this stuff, although I don't know how serious or playful it is (the liner notes do say that the album was recorded during the spring equinox of 2007, although the album release date is 2008, so maybe they take it at least somewhat seriously?). But it serves the mood. The band uses guitar, bass, and drums, of course, but also some keys and flute, which helps give it that European-medieval feel. Tempos are pretty typical for doom/stoner stuff, mid to slow. The production is good, but not great - I wish things were clearer and more "present", but it's possible that this is on purpose to give it that feel of kind of other worldliness. Jex's vocals are rich and warm, more of an alto, I'm guessing, than a soprano - I don't think she ever really goes into the high notes and "soars" the way some women do. But this is not a criticism at all - her voice is really cool, great control, nice vibrato which she seems to control exactly as she wants. Overall it fits the music and provides a great compliment to the doomy feels. Organ helps to create ominous moods, while heavy guitar/bass/drums provide the weight needed, and the production (with well-placed effects and instrumentation) creates a kind of bizarre "psychedelic" atmosphere overall. Sometimes they do pick up the tempo a bit, too.

The packaging is pretty sparse, very simple liner notes, no lyrics, not much information, no photos - just the red/white theme with a wood engraving type scene on the inside - a withered tree and old witch type figure, that sort of thing. But it's about the music, and this band is very much underground, so they probably didn't have any money to put into the packaging anyway! But get it for the music - if you like doom/stoner rock, support this band and pick it up. It'll be a great addition to your collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, solid release 13 May 2010
By Grand Plumper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a good, solid release but nothing more.To label this "stoner rock" probably wouldnt be too fair but having said that i'd argue that this isnt all that original either. That's not to say that this isnt worth listening to, as I said it is GOOD.One thought,though,occured to me as I was listening to this and that is: with the obvious nods to so many bands from days past (particularly from the 1970s),even down to the stripped down analogue-sounding production,why recreate whats already been done (some would argue to death)? Particularly,when its already been done much better by those that have come before??

My advice is go buy the "Warpig" reissue (from 1970) first,and get BLOWN AWAY by an excellent riff-rock monster, thats actually FROM the 1970s, that you've likely not heard before. That, or just dust off your old Sabbath or Amon Duul vinyl...
