"BLOOD NEVER DRIES" EP
By: Gus Bernadicou
Being interesting inside and out is often a good thing, but in the case of the Fearless Vampire Killers it is a hint at the potential these lads from across the pond could possibly have. Combining "goth" makeup and "dynamic vocal harmonies" like the Beach Boys, the Fearless Vampire Killers tended to sound like a Meatloaf cassette being fast forwarded and playing as loud as possible, (but Meatloaf was lucky enough to have Todd Rundgren fix his flaws).. The Blood Never Dries EP slated to be released on August 22, 2011 HAS potential, but with less than 6 songs the band covers too many genres and inconsistently tends to please the listener. The band perfectly handles rock and punk with songs like "Fetish For The Finite," but songs like "Concede, Repent, Destroy" are lost in the mix with the band appearing to sound like Green Day and Queen. In a sense of power-pop and punk, "Bleed Till Sunrise" starts off very strongly and does not disappoint in the end. "Fetish For The Finite" has potential, and so does the band.. Without talent not being a problem, it is more about what the band is trying to accomplish.
