Also helping is the high quality of Inborn Precepts, Biblical's debut, a triumphant album that should find favor with fans of Midnite in particular. Biblical's vocal delivery has a striking, Vaughn Benjamin-like flow, more rhythmic than melodic, with a chanting feel. Ishence's music is likewise in line with Midnite's low-key, occasionally hip-hop-inclined roots, and even the spelling on titles like "Let Luv In," "Eyez Can See," and "Bee Worthy" smack of Midnite's influence. This isn't to say that Biblical is some sort of Benjamin clone, however; his voice itself is quite different -- something more akin to Soldiers of Jah Army -- and he makes a statement as an artist in his own right with the wonderful material here.
Tunes like "Jah Works," "Let Luv In," "Deliver the Poor," and "Eyez Can See" are funky, rootsy, righteous, and sincere and are hopefully a sign of things to come from Oneness Sound/Higher Bound. See oneness-sound.com for info. 2. Formed in Toronto, Canada during the spring of 2010, BIBLICAL is the sound of mountains splitting and oceans parting. Uniting members of The Illuminati, The Bicycles and Steamboat, BIBLICAL delivers crushing riffs drenched in cinematic atmosphere.
In 2011 they released a self-titled EP that delighted rock fans with a blast of tense garage metal steeped in minor-key twang and sludgy organ-soaked breakdowns. In March 2014, NEW DAMAGE RECORDS will release BIBLICAL’s debut LP: MONSOON SEASON. Lauded by PITCHFORK as a “climactic, Red Sea-parting surge of narcotic guitar” MONSOON SEASON is a thunderous opus of haunted psychedelia.
