With their Vision And The Ageless Light LP approaching release through Laser’s Edge later this month, Ohio-based psychedelic/prog quartet EYE has just debuted a video for “Dweller Of The Twilight Void” through Metal Insider.
EYE continues to connect with established fans and newcomers alike with their fourth full-length, Vision And The Ageless Light, an album full of ever-changing moods, sounds, and colors. Vision And Ageless Light is a clear capturing of an epic and ecliptic chapter for the band. It stands as a sonic document of a spirit of a band that rolled through a plethora of endless changes and seasons during its writing, recording, and completion. It also marks as an introduction to a new solid, more musically communicative lineup of the group with the original songwriting foundation of it still mightily intact.
The serene but intense kaleidoscope of sound EYE produces on Vision And The Ageless Light is expressed perfectly within the track, “Dweller Of The Twilight Void,” as displayed in the new video for the track, which was created by Bubba Ayoub.
The band offers, “‘Dweller Of The Twilight Void’ was the final song to be written and recorded for Vision And Ageless Light…We met at our dimly lit studio one evening and performed over the already tracked acoustic guitar and constantly drifting Mellotron. Brandon and I sang together as I played the Moog straight through to the end. Jon rolling through it with us on second acoustic, and Michael putting it all together on upright bass. It was fun and fulfilling to capture that moment which we feel is the epicenter of the record in such a gliding session. Some songs don’t come so easily. There were definitely lots of laughter, smiles, and smoke rings swirling with the frequency and spirit of this song that night…”

EYE‘s Vision And Ageless Light was recorded in parts at Relay Recording with Jon Fintel, and at the band’s Lisa Bella Donna’s own Backroads Recording Studio, after which it was mastered by Phil Demetro from Lacquer Channel Mastering in Toronto, and completed with artwork by Anthony Yankovic, as with the band’s three prior albums. The band incorporated many classic studio techniques to create a mountainous curve to the atmosphere to the record; vintage instruments guitars, keyboards, and amplifiers, a mass of modular synthesizers, upright bass, reverse tape editing techniques, mixing down to different reel to reel recorders, singing and playing together, gongs, Tibetan prayer bowls, chimes, and much more. The production of the record was fully intended to keep a flowing river of sound and atmosphere throughout its duration, yet centering it with raw, visceral live performances to tape.
