Eerie

Eerie (Tee Pee)

Metallurgy

Like a Robert E. Howard novel through an Orange amp stack, Eerie slays snow beasts and evil wizards with the almighty riff. The bicoastal project seems to draw inspiration from guitarist Tim Lehi's gruesome, EC Comics-esque cover. On "Master of Creation" and "Yeti," he and bassist Dave Sweetapple (Witch, Sweet Apple) ladle psychedelic doom prog like an oil spill over a seagull. Meanwhile, Shane Baker (Alaric) wails like Eric Wagner if Trouble had been obsessed with H.P. Lovecraft instead of the Bible. Sharing its moniker with a Seventies horror comic, Eerie casts unself-conscious spells effectively.
