Ah, lest not forget the other integral influences and styles of the Naturalismo. It’s been too long since I’ve addressed a psychedelic band. Entrance plays a blend of psychedelia and blues that owes as much to Hendrix as it does to T.rex but what they give back not only lives up to their influences but makes you wonder if they pose them a threat. I’ve been waiting for an excuse to mention the band Entrance for a short-while after I missed their opening set for Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks back in January and have been embittered ever since. Entrance’s album “Prayer of Death” came out in July of 2006, but with no label backing was limited to a self-pressed CD run of 1000. With favorable press and help from a friend Entrance was able to release “Prayer of Death” worldwide in late November of 2006. Recently, Entrance, who fronts “Entrance(the band)” real name Guy Blakeslee posted 2 unreleased songs that weren’t featured on their newest album.

“Grim Reaper Blues pt.2” Plays like Helter Skelter in reverse, only with the “Look Out” yell serving as the soft introduction to the eventual climax that sends the song splintering into electric chaos.

Entrance – Grim Reaper Blues pt.2

and in case you’re not into the ruckus Psychedelic side of things here’s a few of his other songs that show Entrance’s range:

Entrance – Honey in the rock A slower tempoed slanky Bolan tinged tune with a great chorus. (From his ’04 Release)

and another from his most recent album:
