Electric Citizen: Higher Time album review
Malevolent anthems from Electric Citizen for a land of dark Satanic mills.
Hailing from presumably the gloomiest corner of Cincinnati, Electric Citizen join the ranks of Blood Ceremony, Jex Thoth, and Jess And The Ancient Ones as flagbearers for the revival of occult rock. The band’s second album, Higher Time has its roots planted in 60s psychedelia married to proto-metal riffs – imagine Grace Slick fronting Blue Cheer and that’s a close approximation of their sound. The album opens with Evil, a track that reeks of doom, powered by guitarist Ross Dolan and guest keys player Andrew Higley whose organ sounds the perfect note of gothic despair.
