davaudio This album is an immensely twisted story that gets better and better with each listen. I don't review albums that often; but this is some seriously good shit. Heavy rotation. I cannot wait to hear more. Favorite track: Rotten Trolls.

about

Second full lenght album for the Italian power trio Doctor Cyclops. Released through the german label World in Sound in february 2014, this album's mostly doom, prog and heavy rock orientated. 5 long tracks with psychedelic environments, 70s rock and heavy metal influences. Also some jazz and melodic taste come to add this lp a huge groovy and appeal.

In a genre where as it seems since Black Sabbath most everything has had been said, these folks come up with a very intense and exciting album. Their
actual output has pure 1973 retro feeling, where epic heavy riffs and rhythms melt with psychedelic, progressive breaks and make you dive into their euphoric guitar soundscapes. The atmospherically well balanced vocals
create an important reference point in the five arrangement-extensive songs from 6 to 16 min lengths. The well produced and exciting spectrum of complexity and catchiness makes this album grow more and more after each
listen and leads all those who like it HEAVY toward deep satisfaction!

about

Doctor Cyclops Bosmenso Superiore, Italy

Doctor Cyclops is a seventies-styled power trio playing heavy rock music inspired by a vintage sound, eldest son of glorious Balck Sabbath and of other more underground heroes from the 70ies and early 80ies such as Sir Lord Baltimore, Captain Beyond or Witchfinder General. Even more modern references are warm-vintage styled ones: Witchcraft, Cathedral, Spiritual Beggars just to say some. ... more

Track Name: Waterfalls
Corruption and souls under a white sun
They act like pigs but they’re human-kinded ones
A wizard turned them into rats, pulled them down
To reckon with fat Borgofondo’s cats

Retaliation under a black sun
The justice statue dominates the glade as a gun
Watering Lotus flowers for the insanes
A Fountain purifies all the blames, till the waterfall where Phoenix planes.
Track Name: The Monk
He lives on the peak where the eagle screams
The path there it leads it is paved with dreams
A restless wind blows inside his body
Harassing his soul of loneliness

Witness of life’s inextricable thread
He chose to get away and to forget this grid
He feeds his eyes with someone else’s sight
Waits you at the door so hunger for life

Wayfarer, have you got a little story for me?
Evoker of the ancient spirits come in, dance with me
Outside is cold, beside the fire you can warm your soul
Don’t hesitate, when darkness comes you know the wolves won’t wait

Wayfarer, did you hear my singing last night?
It was just a siren calling to attract you inside
I’m so alone, I need your fire to recharge my soul
Don’t be afraid of pain, let the rite begin because the monk can’t wait

The monk will die by another dead
Keepin’ all his thoughts prisoner in his head
The monk will die, and then he’ll blow
Your mind!

There he goes! abused your body and collected your soul
He took it all, no way to have your old way back no more
Future frames
Through your opium visions you see the monk dance!
Track Name: Angel Saviour In The C.H.
Angel Saviour betrayed by his wings fell in the cannibal house
Lost his way home, he’s got to take a ride by gettin far from the stars

Kaspar Houser, they tried to make him write and read like anyone else
Helpless creeture, he didn’t understand and now he’s fixing the ground

Big fat jailer, he died three times of lives that he was living invain
He did notice that something’s got to change and tried to set free the beast

Cyclop’s workroom, the man without a soul experimenting inside
Mad and damned, he seems to have some cinder running down from his eyes

He is invisible
Look at his purple eyes!
Seems unbelivable, he’s got pleasure in his eyes!

Maniac buster, maniac buster, he indicates the ground to keep you apart from the sky
Track Name: Cobweb Hands
I’m the cloth of the courtains protecting your room
From the light
I’m the fear catching you ‘cause you know what is real
The truth
Black my spell, I’m the cast making heavy your eyes
I flow in and move through

All I see emotions,
All you see, the night
The snake is crawling in you,
His sight will make you blind

I’m the dirt maker controlling your dreams
I’ll be the first of your awakening screams

I’m the cobweb hands, you know me
Flies at my comand
Stuck inside your head I caress your heart with velvet hand

Freedom comes along like someone else’s hand
Fragilty of your mind will make you blind
Track Name: Rotten Trolls
Evil Eyes, on the throne
Reflection of histerical blindness
Darker time for mankind
Who chose to geta way from the light

Through the haze
In the witches cave
The deads reveal the faith it’s the end
Sing the song of a dying world
Evolution from the worm takes the place of mammals
Shamans lift the pyres up!

I’ve heard bad news coming from the kingdom,
the old king left his throne
and now the time of Rotten Trolls will bring the night on all.
Oh, yeah! The big fat master prepares and guilds the cage
Ejaculations keep minds pale,
and turn subjects into slaves.

They masturbate, ejacultate, fed by his robotical madness
But in the shades, with his mates
The goblins’ lord is planning revenge,
runs through the woods and make the war start!

Goblins’ sheperd looks for a thick bush with his fellows
Wants to teach them all his fuckin’ tricks

Uh! A beautiful lady comes out from the the dark
And she spreads her magniifical existence to everybody

“Would you please me baby? I give myself for hire”
Said the plastic lady.
“I’m the king’s daughter!”

Goblins strenghtened and proud of their master
Are waving pikes and banners

Goblins’ sheperd crawling unfold his mushroom,
But finds it blown by the princess (What a shame!)
He jumps into the fire!

Back to the human courtyard, magnificent and luxury
The lady takes her clothes off and hang them to a glory hole
Bloody are the assholes cut by glass of broken jars
Young boys move in circle ‘round the priest that’s stealing light from their eyes

Golden guilded man enjoyes his horse while his friends handcock men
Massaging his feet they wait to get to wonderland
She gets into the main hall, and meet the young prince gloved-hans
With brutal violence raping and jerking off a black she-male

Riding through the darkness
He is bringing paranoia
Beware of necromantic princess
The Sheperd got gonorrea!
