With a background in the Swedish underground scene since the early 90s the members of Eyes of the Oak has collected a fair amount of musical lore. The band was formed on a summer night in 2022 inspired by a few tasty brews of course. Soon enough, they found themselves geared up in a rehearsal space with new songs, and the flame of inspiration has burned ever since.
The music is a melting pot mixing Doom, Stoner, Psych, Progressive, and Drone with classic Heavy Metal. The members have a history from acts such as blackmetal band Noctes, punk band Svarta Spyor, powermetal band Wyvern and progressive rock act Obskyr, so there is no lack of influence.
Their first release, full-length album THE STONE VORTEX, was recorded in Studio Underjord. Engineered and mixed by Joona Hassinen, a renowned name in the Stoner/ Doom Genre. Major part of the album is recorded live in studio, warts and all, it captures the magic vibe that happens when four dudes crawl into a studio and just play. Loud and honest!
