Review from Live 4 Metal

From the "American Metal Column" By Scott Alisoglu, from the Live 4 Metal website at: http://www.live4metal.com

Mockingbird Lane - 2003 Demo
 Have you ever wondered what it would sound like if Leonard Cohen sang for the Misfits?  It would sound something like Mockingbird Lane's 5-song demo.  Ok, I'm stretching things, but the comparison is not that far off.  The Oklahoma band performs a more goth-like version of the Misfits and the results aren't half-bad.  "Taken Under," which is also included as an acoustic mix, has a decent hook.  The band even does a cover of the Misfits' "She" that stays true to the original without Glenn Danzig's Elvis impression.  "I…Vampire" and "Wolfshead" stay in the same horror punk territory, albeit with the band's more gothic flavor and a thin sound mix.  It's worth checking out mainly because I'm not hearing anything else like it out there right now.
