Head Without Eyes has absolutely nothing to do with the aforementioned bands and genres. Per Wiberg calls his debut a different kind of heavy. The urge to go further and further artistically, together with a lifelong collection of records, creates a special mix of melodies that explore the limits of experimental rock music. This release contains a daring pile of tracks full of innovative rock music. The dark lyrics contain intelligent ideas that are accompanied by psychedelic sounds and pumping, rocking guitars.
All instruments and vocals were realized by the master himself. Only the drums were played by Karl Daniel Lidén (Crippled Black Phoenix, Katatonia, Switchblade) and Lars Sköld (Tiamat, Avatarium). Billie Lindahl (Promise And The Monster) borrowed her ethereal voice on the tracks Anywhere The Blood Flows and Pile Of Nothing.
Anywhere The Blood Flows and Fader are powerful and drawn-out songs that, despite their length (more than ten minutes), thoroughly influence the sense of time. Much attention was paid to the construction and finishing of the tracks. Hallucinating creative sounds provide an industrial ribbon around this release. The vocal lines of Per Wiberg sound surprisingly good with the threatening song structures filled with gothic leverages.
Head Without Eyes opens after several listening sessions like a lotus. Per Wiberg is a master smith who mixes and forges different types of iron into an insanely strong samurai sword that cuts through the flesh and bones with a sharp rocking blade. This is an exciting piece of rock music with a lot of underlying layers that slowly float to the surface. Head Without Eyes is an edition to cherish.
