A couple of years ago, Entrance Band (then just "Entrance," the solo project of Guy Blakeslee of Baltimore's incredibly sick The Convocation Of and the short-lived but also sick Behind Closed Doors) opened for Lungfish. It was just the big haired Blakeslee hunched over a guitar, alone on a big stage and it was terrible. But he got better, got great, a few years later releasing the fairly stoned out and heavily riffing Prayer of Death on Tee Pee Records, a label known more for stoking the dreams of longhaired metal dudes than longhaired hippies. But he fit in, chunky and fuzzed out. Since jumping ship to Ecstatic Peace, Entrance Band has cooled their jets, focusing the fuzz and harnessing the ride. "Lookout!," the first single from the upcoming self-titled full length, is a beefy doozy, but more Mudhoney than Sabbath. Still gonna sound good when you listen shrouded, just make sure the blacklight is bright enough that you can see your hands when you air guitar shred the sweet solo.
