Yann Ligner’s vocal performance in „The Eye Of Needle (part 2)“ inevitably brings Maynard James Keenan to mind. With an eponymous piece, divided in two tracks of 10 and 7 minutes, „The Eye Of Needle“ EP is going farther than ever into psychedelia and heavy sound. Yann Ligner is in his natural element, with a singing continuously shared between a distinctively metallic heaviness and emotional rock overtones.
2015′ was a great year for KLONE, with extended tours in Australia and Europe (with Devin Townsend) in support of their mind-boggling „Here Comes The Sun“ album.
KLONE have been around for 15 years and have perfectioned their expansive and exploratory sound to the greatest level of detail during this long an fruitful existence. This year, after the great success of „Here Comes The Sun“, PELAGIC RECORDS are (re-)releasing 3 of their back catalogue albums on CD, and for the first time on vinyl format: 2010’s „Black Days“, 2012’s „The Dreamer’s Hideaway“ and 2012’s „The Eye Of Needle“ (EP).
This new edition of the long sold-out EP comes with an extra live version of the entire EP as a bonus (previously unreleased). The third track, “Monster”, is an unreleased song from the sessions of the previous album („Black Days“), showcasing the more metal past of the band.
