ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Formed in late 2002, Seattle's RISHLOO continue to gain wide-spread recognition for their dynamic sound, thought-provoking lyrics and intense live performance. Often compared to bands like Dredg, The Mars Volta, Fair to Midland and A Perfect Circle, RISHLOO strives to push the envelope of epic progressive art rock, drawing inspiration from classic artists like The Beatles, David Bowie, and Pink Floyd, while incorporating the modern experimentations and emotional depth of artists such as Tori Amos, Deftones, Radiohead and Porcupine Tree.

Continuing as they have since their inception as an entirely independent venture, RISHLOO have sold 3,500+ units of their debut album, Terras Fames (2004) and 4,500+ units of their sophomore effort, Eidolon (2007) while attracting tens of thousands of fans online from around the globe. Interest in the band continues to grow exponentially on sites such as Myspace, Reverb Nation and Last.FM where RISHLOO has become one of the largest and fastest growing indie groups with more than a five-fold increase in plays over the last eight months from 60,000 to nearly 320,000 with another 1,500+ plays added daily.

With a lot of hard work and much appreciated help from their fans, RISHLOO continue to travel and perform whenever possible throughout the U.S. and parts of Canada. In the course of their adventures, they have been privileged to share the stage with artists like Papa Roach, Fair to Midland, Ashes Divide, Sevendust, Trapt, Strata and Judas Priest.

For now, the band continues to perform regionally while finishing up their newest release, FeatherGun, due out in June of 2009.

Nothing short of brilliant.
Every track is great. Even the interludes. No joke! I never thought RISHLOO could top Terras Fames but WOW. Eidolon blows it away. Exceeded FAR beyond my expectations. Brilliantly and cleverly written lyrics. So much emotion in this CD. I'm in love with it. I can listen to it all day. And I have everyday since the CD came in the mail. This CD sounds nothing like anything anyone has ever heard. Incredibly original. The artwork and design is fantastic. Very intriguing to look at. Great CD. I give this a 6 out of 5 rating. I would like to personally thank RISHLOO for creating such great art. I definitely recommend buying this record. These guys are true artists. No idea why they aren't signed.

Buy it if you liked them live, or if you liked Terras Fames.
Upon listening to Eidolon my first thoughts were this: The guitar has gotten 1000 times better than before, the percussion has gotten a little more predictable, and everything else han't changed much since Terras Fames. After listening to it 5 or 6 times I haven't changed my opinions much, but I do have some boring commentary to offer.

I love the softer guitar found on many of the tracks, and David's use of effects is amazing. Sean seems to have come more into the foreground with some vicious bass solos and a fatter, heavier sound than in the previous album. I love the contrast between guitar and bass on Eidolon.

With Tyler having left the band, the new drummer Jesse had some big shoes to fill. As far as his ability to play, he obviously has no difficulty mastering old material. However when it comes to making his contribution to the music, it seems like the drumming can be a little predictable. Not necessarily the drum parts themselves, but the overall sound of the kit doesn't have that crisp openness that Tyler was known for.

I was hoping the vocals would have evolved in the same direction as the guitar, with more reflective and soothing tones. In a few songs this was true, but overall it seems like Drew took it in the other direction, putting more emotion into his voice than ever before. This took longer to get used to, but at this point I can't get enough of it.

Overall, good album. If you liked any of the songs from Terras Fames, you should like Eidolon even more.

Eidolon, better than white bread
I like Eidolon a bunch... The talent that Rishloo exumes on this album is crippling to say the least. I actually had to go to the E.R. after my first time listening to Eidolon. (perferated bowel) Too Rockin!

Jack

Outstanding aggressive and dreamy album.
This album hit me in the head like a brick. The opening noise sequence builds in to the albums first song. The aggressive Freaks & Animals. This baby has one of my favourite heavy moments of this year. El Empe follows and then Rishloo calms down a bit on Pandora. Another highlight because of the dreamy soundscape.

All in all this cd is one of the best and most ambitious works this year.

Jeff

WOW!!!!
This cd is fantastic from start to finish! I love the way it flows from song to song. Anyone who is interested in Seattle's local music scene or just prog rock in general should check this out!!!!

Liz

Incredible awesomeness
Eidolon couldn't have been more incredible! It is simply amazing how much Rishloo has grown since their first CD - if Terras Fames introduced you to Rishloo as great artists, Eidolon will make you exalt them!!

Mike

Absolutly Amazing
Much more Progressive then Terras Fames, They have all gone outside of what they normally do with there style and made it sound incredable, This is a MUST own album.

Keeper

Une Claque
Le plus grand groupe inconnu du monde!

Colin

Sophmore effort shows maturity
Eidolon, the follow up to Terras Fames, shows a band that has truly found its sound.

From start to finish, this album is a hypnotic journey. Full of high's and low's, Eidolon takes its listener across a landscape of ethereal melodies, Pandora, to a new twist on the classic rock style, Freaks and Animals.

Terras Fames presented a band with potential. It laid the foundation, but was not able to paint the picture that Rishloo has now perfected through Eidolon.

Perhaps its only fault, the songs in Eidolon can blend together if taken as individuals. But this is not an album for the casual. With Eidolon, Rishloo has created one of the rare albums that must be listened to in order and all the way through. Each song blends almost flawlessly into the next, creating a continuous and deep musical pallet that few other bands can accomplish.
