The Captain's Daughter

by Eight Bells

Eight Bells debut “The Captain’s Daughter” was “engine-eared” by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis, Agalloch). Its four songs are alternately beautiful and terrifying, mixing elements of black metal and progressive rock in a decidedly unique manner.

Album Notes
A native of rural Texas, Melynda Jackson grew up an only child. The isolated grasslands
and windswept landscapes of her youth would later inspire her to evoke equally
mysterious terrain through experimental guitar explorations and wordless vocalizations in
her band, SubArachnoid Space. After 15 years of existence, Jackson put the band to bed
in 2011.

Eight Bells continues the SubArachnoid Space tradition of heavy guitar exploration,
adding a blackened dissonance to the mix and minimalist vocals. Jackson is accompanied
by classically trained six-string bassist Haley Westeiner, who also provides harmonic
counterpoint to Jackson’s newly discovered vocal talents. SubArachnoid Space drummer
Chris Van Huffel resumes the throne he occupied for ten years, bringing his thunderous,
nuanced double kick playing with him. With this power trio, Jackson has found a group
that brings focus and support to her unapologetically expressionistic experimental metal
